But, looking at a set of branches the other night, PC and I discussed the extra heat transferred to the engine bay by these (that otherwise would have been released as heat in the exhaust gas at the exhaust exit. Definitely you'll end up with ...

Re: Lobiz 4x4

Hallo Manne,

gister my patrol by Riaan gehad om skokbrekers en busse te vervang.

Re: Diesel vs Sparks

Forum event.

The moffie cruiser already has penalties bestowed on him.

Have no interest to involve cruisers. Remember we will be participating in the WOMZA rally, and the class will be Nissan Patrols.

Will be working on a sled design tonight.

Final arrangements will be issued on Friday.

Regards

Oom Mac is one of the big contributors on this forum and a big Patrol fan. When I was still new on this forum his house an heart was open to a practica...
