Yeh, Just why are picks so bad in the suspension department ?

It's because leaf springs are still the best for load carrying. Hence most vans and pickups have them - of course the yanks are late for everything as usual - even their sports cars have them - that went out with the early Capri in this country!!!

Off road the Defender has a better ride than anything else I have driven - fancy new stuff with air springs are very harsh offroad - to get the ground clearance the springs are pumped up hard - which make for a very rough ride when off roading.
Is there an icon one can include to indicate "just winding you up" ?

Actually I take it all back. I had to change the wheel on mine yesterday. What a kerfuffle taking the spare wheel off is! So don't get a flat tyre on a motorway in an Amazon. I was in my driveway and it still took ages.

Hehehe

I have a variety of holes cut in RC toys for my wireless camera (I didn't manage to bag the bargain you did though!), but I have yet to get good results from the tank. An ongoing project, like the other half a hundred.



On a marine note, I was thinking of setting up a shop display of a Standard Horizon CP-300 (the on with the video in) and a fish tank with a small RC boat complete with wireless camera. Not as a toy you understand, but as a showcase for current technology.
