  1. 300k miles might have something to do with it... but no, just unlucky,
  2. do bits of piston and conrod, and crank carrier count😂
  3. so, where were we.... oh yeah.... on my way home from plymouth on monday night with yet another rx8 in the back, my lorry decided that having working fuel injectors was unnecessary. when it started to knock, (massive amounts of fuel running straight into cyl 4 with no control whatsoever) i decided it was time for a tow... cornwall commercials are my local recovery company, the only ones for miles, and they where really busy that night. they ended up sending their only spare wagon, a 7.5ton spec lift, to drag me home on a pole. not much fun, i can assure you! im very very glad i have recovery! police where great too! closed the road so i could reverse down the road and to a junction. took til 1am to get recovered less than 5 miles! injectors where tested on wednesday, 1 scrap and being replaced with a exchange unit, 2 passed test and one failed but rebuildable. im having 3 rebuilt anyway, still a Mahooosive bill......... 120+vat each for rebuilds plus 188+vat for replacement on a exchange basis. so lets look at my car issues at the moment. the rx8 is awaiting a new tactrix that hasn't arrived yet (a adapter to allow me to change the fuelling maps) rx8 no2 has no clutch the laguna has no key, i sent it off for repair and haven't received it back, i think royal mail have lost it. and the lorry is broken too.. now the work van can break and ill have no vehicles at all.....
  4. a rocipricating saw has its uses. there are jobs on my lorry that i wouldnt have been able to do without it. taking the tail lift off being a good example...
  5. that one in stoke on trent was perfect (almost) and i would have had it as it only went for 350 but... it would have cost me the same again to bring it home...
  6. dont think ill bother with that one anyway, stoke on trent is a bit far
  7. yeah, i watch the skid factory too i think its a american and aussie thing, anywhere where autos are prevalent. my main objection to auto is the performance and fuel economy loss. could always swap a r380 in
  8. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/range-rover-p38-1996/274062222548?hash=item3fcf61a4d4:g:QlAAAOSwKixdo3D1 shame its a auto...
  9. yeah on air or nothing for me too,
  10. to be honest, the thing i miss the most is the screams from my mother as i light the tyres up coming off a roundabout
  11. i used to have a 4.0v8 se with a r380 gearbox. it WASNT slow, not at all. it would spin all 4 wheels up in 2nd!.
  12. as you two nutters are telling me to do it, i can conclude... that i am indeed mad!
  13. after 5 or so years of landrover less life, i find myself hankering for another p38 v8 to go greenlaing in... please,,,,, talk me out of it! 😫
