Re: POSTPONED Yorks cruise Saturday 7th June

Re-reading my post its badly written. Im avoiding driving where i can to minimise risk. When on a cruise you drive at the speed you want. If some want to go faster thats a choice they have.

Re: POSTPONED Yorks cruise Saturday 7th June

Sorry guys but I have to postpone the cruise due to bad weather forecast. If it was just damp I would go for it but it seems like we may have some very bad downpours and it will be no fun.

Please advise alternative dates that will work for you - how about 2-weeks in on 21st June?

Looks great, good job. Can you route the air inlet to the front, over or under the charger? Incoming air will be warm where you have it so there is less density and massflow.

The piston should push into the caliper body more easily than it can be pulled out. Thats a feature of the seal shape which is designed to pull back the piston a bit when foot comes off the brake pedal.
