so i am guess it was greg who keeps deleting my post then or was that you last night who first removed the img tags of the thing and then removed it all together or am am suppose to image the the post i put in what i did in my truck today disspaperaed, or the fact my post in certian sections have gone.

just because you guys all had a fall out over the truck is your beef not mine i am on here to have a laugh and help ot as i said last night during the heealth and safety lesson and the english lesson. but if that is the way this is going to carry on what is the point of the forum if any opinion other than yours gregs or smithys is not acceptable.

i come on here for a good crack, help and to offer help from whom ever for whom ever in the areas i know and for the areas i dont i thought this was the hole point of the forum

but not to worry i will leave you lot. as not interestd in the politics as i told andy last night in this thread if it is still there.

Okay, you seem to have an issue about Bigdazz being banned, that is his problem not ours, I couldnt give a flying V6 about him.

It was not me who edited your picture post but I know who did edit it and the reason for the edit (img tags removed) was given in the edit box below the post should you care to look, the picture was too big and needed resizing, you chose to ignore this and reposted the picture, it was then subsequently removed, the rule where broken and the Mod did their job.

And as for safety, yes that is a big issue and where members can we will always offer safety advice, it stops people being killed or hurt, there is no space for foolishness in this area.

this has nothing to do with daz being banned i have not mentioned that i have have frequently what your problem is is not mine i was mentioning that what i was putting was dissapearing as i was showing the wife what i had been talking about and this was not there and that was not there and then it looked like i was being called a liar by smithy over the run way which upset her.

like i said i not on here for the politics just have a good crack, as i have explained if this is a problem for some because i am dazz's freind this is not my problem i put up a post going come and have play no one did daz came down to help me do some work on my truck and then we went and had a right ball and now all of a sudden i am causing trouble apperntly for posting about the fact i had a smashing weekend.

so that others who where interested in coming can see what a great laugh it was and so if they wanted some of the other locals who dont travel great distances as time and money dont allow every one to go off round the country for play days like some of us and so the fact i could share my good fortune with them about finding such a fun place on my door step. but if like i said i am not on here for the politics or the popularity contests on im on here to chat with like minded adults about having fun in our trucks and then fixing them when we brake them

i edited you last 5 pics to just the link so folk could still see them if the clicked on the link

as for the car being heavy i think any fronty can only weigh about 2.700kg loaded with a gross train weight ( with trailer) of about 4.200kg

your post is a bit like me going on a truck forum an saying i drove a 7.5t truck but loaded it to 13 ton your just asking for flak

most people on here know what a fronty can do when i had my 2.4 i towed an artic about 80ft that ecu imobilizer would not let it start away from a fire
it weighed 35t but in 4x4 first low i got it away from the danger which was on private property


i never called you a liar i just asked why you had street light flash's on you dash there are no lights on the A46 so just wondered
cheers

no lights just about 20 miles of road works with lights or have you not been down the a46 in the last 2 years as there widening the road

and when i say about 4 tonne i have not had it on the scales i am just refering to the amount of junk on it and macking a rough guess ok.

will find the correct info later to clarify things so no confusion over kerb weight and maxum axle weight as interesed just to see what the limit is.

just open the bonnet and read the plate it shouls be on panel near lock if not on door post
it will tell axel 1 weight axel 2weight 3 GVW 4 GTW

funny you should mention the A46 i use to go up it every day to the raf newton estate
an gained acesses via newton lane and when leaving had to turn left as no right turn onto A46 & up to round about to head down A46
which is just round the corner from where you live

so i think i know it plus i went past the area friday on the way to normanton & dewsbury :drink:

then you know what i mean about the road works and the lights then as they have moved the fence back to the airfeild and messed with the entrance you have to go about half a mile up the road and snake back the last time i went over making a right mess of the countryside but should free up the traffic a treat once it is finished. 2 petrol stations are going to stuffed as they have moved the road from between them to behind one of them about 200yrds so the jet on the left is going to be ok he can put roads down the back the total the other side is shutting donw as no way people will drive round 2 round abouts to get to them.
