  1. Hi John yes it was my 80 coiler challenge truck , glad to here she is still running , I miss a road legal challenge truck now , if you get a chance a picture of her would be nice
  2. as the title , GOT TO BE RELIABLE as I spend time and money preping the truck and entering events none of the "sorry but I know you are on your way to the event but my budgy is sick / wife wont let me come" types need apply am based in Watford in herts and have a half decent truck and 7 years experience. My brother and I have done the challenger series for a few years (we are the idiots with the coach !!). Looking to do the challenger or LRS series this year so south east to midlands based people ideal , Oh and if you want to help prep the truck / load the bus and come up in the bus up then all good Steve
  3. What sort of budget do you need to compete in this event ?
  4. Hey Chris...long time no see. Ade and I are going to compete
  5. ooh me too please...Wadders dont worry you will have a great time and wish you had done the whole year
  6. I have spoken to Mr Nick, Chris and he says he and Lee will be there to kick your butt in the comp on Sun
  7. mate any Sunday after a Saturday night is dodgy for you !!
  8. A big thanks to Adee my co driver for working so hard , Paul , Lucy and all the marshals for a great event , Mr Nick for his encouragement and winch motor know how and Mark from Mud Monsters for a spare motor. Fantastic pictures as well Kirkynut
  9. Looking forward to this round. Its my Son Hadley's 4th birthday on Saturday so will be celebrating with him at Yarwell , hoping to be there about 4 ish in the bus
  10. Thank you guys for your kind words re our Win it is nice to know that if the truck holds together until near the end (20 mins) then we have a chance at a podium. A big thank you to my stand in co driver Dom for all his hard work and to Paul , Lucy and the marshals for their hard work . Any more pictures from anyone ?
  11. The track is no problem been up there twice last year but each time it seems to get narrower and more closed in by the foliage
  12. looking forward to it , does anyone know if the entrance track is still passable by 17 ton 40 foot long 13 foot tall bus ?
  13. Chris That's a shame can't you change it during the drivers briefing as per usual !!!!!
  14. Right spoken to First Four Offroad and what they call the ZF 74 flows about 6-7 litres per min compared to the standard of 4 l/min , doesn't fit a 300 tdi and now costs £325 + vat so that's a dead end
  15. Thanks Fridge been looking at old threads on here and found a link to 4x4 winches selling what they call a ZF 74 pump for £189 which if its as super duper as people say isn't too bad when a genuine regular pump is £100 ish
  16. Fridge I thought I saw a heavy duty one for sale on here a while back...any ideas am fed up with heavy or intermittent power steering so that was why I went for the hydro assist kit as the series I compete in wont (I think ) allow full hydro
  17. Hmm Sean it is possible but the pump doesn't seem to be pumping when you turn lock to lock
  18. I have a 300 tdi challenge truck with hydro assist steering and am suffering from poor steering assist (both before and after the hydro assist kit) I have replaced the steering box and the pump (twice) but I still suffer from power steering failure. I run 38.5 inch boggers at about 6 psi on the front and the power steering packed up about 2 hours into a challenge and came back and hour later only to go again. My question is can I get a heavy duty pump or do you have any other ideas as how to cure this Thanks in Advance
  19. Great day thanks to Paul,Lucy and all the marshals. A big thank you to Sean my stand in co driver who did very well for his first challenge and now will have a regular spot as my brothers co driver as the idiot who was supposed to did not show up
  20. nearly all set just new pads front and rear and fill both car and coach with diesel (ouch !) Oh and fill the beer fridge. we will be down Sat evening
