Don't worry I laughed out loud as well, this happens to me loads of time, for someone who's technical I have the worst luck with electric gizmos.
I've been classified as a technical divient by the importers of high end audi in Melbourne

What time do you usually knock off Steve?

Are you guys going to race at St Ives this weekend? Maybe I can sneak around there when I "go to get milk" at the end of Josh's party. I am also trying to get leave to go on the Saturday morning prior to the CC.

Just looked on St.Ives thread and they are still working on it (not friday but both sat and sun).
Could go for a look but think it will be poor form to practice.

Even though nobody told me whether or not a 4 channel receiver (Ace RC) would work with a two channel radio I bought it anyway; it was, after all, only $8.70 on Ebay, delivered. Don't you love it when nobody else bids! $46 value (without postage) for $8.70.

Now I just need some 27mhz crystals. Any offers?

from what I can gather, no racing this weekend at St.Ives (shit) and they are going to ask the council if they can have a race meet on the 22nd

Looks like I might be the owner of an 8.5, I can buy it for $75AU, I think it's worth it

I am off today because of our new 9 day fortnight. Come on people go out and spend money or better still for me renovate.

Make sure you get yourself a kilo of potatoes for the nose of your car if you intend to use that 8.5.
