Pritty quite in here lately Charlie cars all good then
G'day Matt nice to hear from you mate!
AW's AWesome but I'm likely going to sell it shortly. Need to simplify life a bit.
SW is SWeet, been real reliable since I rebuilt the fuel system but its clutch died heading up to Russell just before Christmas and I haven't fixed it yet so it's just sitting in the shed. Need to get the AW outta there so I can pull the red thing apart. But frankly I'm having a VERY hard time crossing that line and parting with it. Especially as I have a TON of spares for the AW and none at all for the SW.
And the AW was always intended to become a project, hence I have spare motors etc to rebuild. But I'd also like to keep the SW so Isaac can have it some day. Hard to find a car as quick as that thing and he's a good enough driver for it.
Haven't been on a run in ages, mainly cos there don't seem to be any. But I'm not driving the AW anywhere at the mo as it's under-insured by about 3x (judging by the not-even-original AW selling recently for about $23,500 on Trademe) and I'd not want it having an accident.
I hope you guys are well?
