Ok so thats four on the axles, one on the roof as a spare ... I think using a 33" mud tyre as a steering wheel is a bit overkill Fudge!!

Right...have done the maths on this, and if I pay for my truck and leave it up the workshop and chuck in the fuel money I would have used in it, then we can still do this meet, just...

But if anyone else drops out then its cancelled I am afraid. I cant do any more than this to try and make this happen. :(

Sorry to the guys who have had to pull out cant make it, this had the makings of a blinding meet, hope to see you soon though.

Andy if you need a hand with your truck let me know mate. :wink:

I'm good subject to getting the indicators working OK - I'm hoping it's a easy fix like changing the flasher unit - if I can't I don't fancy driving it across Kent with no indicators.

Know what you mean Matt - on a serious note - it's the risk of getting a tug that would concern me with the associated closer look that would undoubtedly follow
