    It's to get the front of the body up as high as possible to get maximum airflow to the tea-tray splitter and floor. The travel is so small that...

    It's not going to look pretty, but you could use a panel joining glue and then rivet the plate on. The Glue does the work, the rivets just keep it in...

    Yeah, it's not the ideal size but I can't think of anything else I'd ever use the steel for, and I don't want it to go to waste. I'm only using the...

    Ok, here is a scale sketch of the trailer at the highest and lowest setting. It could potentially be lowered slightly if used on the freeway and then...

    The longer the distance from the tow ball to the wheels, the easier it is to reverse, but the problem with a car trailer is ball weight. Many cars...

    They pivot on the arm that sticks out from the A-Frame. I do note that the range may be limited as in the disclaimer it states -

    You're right, I had presumed that the photos on the website were just to show how low it could go. But if they can be left attached to the car and...

    The RX4 has a Kerb weight of 1485kg and a GVM of 1990kg. The trailer GVM can only be 2000kg by law so the components are well specified for the...

    Thanks for the pictures. It looks like a completely fabricated steering system. I can't see any suspension on it either. Hmm. Decisions. Decisions.

    They do work well, but it depends on how long the trailer deck is. If it has a car that overhangs the deck you're stuck with ramps that can't be...

    Was it the ramp over where the ramps met the trailer or the approach angle that dictated the long ramps? For a single seater, the one above would...

    Hi Richard. Just wanted to say thank you and give a update. I have just fitted the electric choke and everything feels as if its running so much better. many thanks for the directions you were spot on all the ways. The only thing i did not mentioned was use the old power lead from the old choke. as i struggled finding a live wire close by and realised the existing wire was live all the time. Now iam not heel toe brake and accel at the traffic lights near work after a shift. once again thank you. Regards David I just noticed you managed to get a rear brake valve where from ???????????

    Hi Richard. Hope you had a great christmas& new years. iam hoping you can help. i recall reading about you changing the choke on the fuego with a xf. i have never been hppy with mine on the fuego and have just found a xf choke. may i ask a few questions regarding. i am picking up the xf choke tomorrow and am unsure what parts it will replace. iam sure once i see the unit things should become clear,
    1, when you say the three screws are you refering to the first 3 small screws that as the water pipes attached or is it the main unit held bey 3 long screws.
    2,The wiring needs to be live all the time, so that gets wired under the dash ?
    3, turning the spring 180 ?
    hope what iam asking makes sense.
    regards

    Dear Mistareno

    A work mate gave me your forum to look at as he said it was very good, a vBulletin package as is my own and had good examples of how to use it for advertising and generating revenue ...

    I didn't want to break any forum rules so thought I would message you directly.

    Could I please ask a very big favour ?

    Would you mind giving me a few tips and pointers on how I too could get advertising just as you have done successfully here on my own web forum for heart patients ?

    I need a bit of a mentor just to bounce a few questions off ...

    The website is: www.cardiacathletes.org or the newer one I am building is www.cardiacathletes.com ... if you click on the Forum tab ... you will see what I mean ... I need your help ...

    Hope to hear from you.

    Cheers.
