A couple more from my new obsession ...kind of like the gap between a Tiger Moth and an F-16.

Me too! Never got used to that huge spoiler, though, made reversing very tricky :rolleyes:

Marty like you I have a temporary distraction from flightsimming, but glad to see you putting your talents to work on the other machines.
These and the other thread are a quantum leap from the last time I looked at the 4 wheeled ones.
I think your new Forum Handle "SimMan" would be well earned...

I found that it came in very useful at BBQs. You could rest your beers on it when cooking and then serve from it.

Heh... just before the engine rebuild, we'd rev it to 22,500rpm for a few minutes.
Then: steak on the exhaust manifold, fries on the radiator, and the eggs? scrambled to perfection by running through the turbo! :lol:
