You know I wanted to let southern Adrian spot him through a few sections with his special glasses

You should Hack the ECU to take control of the ABS so you can selectively break each wheel independently. I think someone is or did do the on the Outer limits forum on a slightly bigger Rover.

I dont think other than ditching the Goodyears, that I will be getting into much more with changes. After all it is my daily driver now and I do still have the D90.

He said he was going to come to MAR with his 90 to prove his Manliness, and don't worry about the Texas thing, I hear the trails down there are pretty spars so he'll be looking to come back to wheel!

Ahhh, sorry for not getting back to you last night, I totally forgot that and if I did remember it would have been a call back at 10:30, a little late for rover work! And I'll work on Rover electrics way before I ever work on a Ford! The Expedition had 120 fuses! and about 10 of them were somehow tied into the trailer!

There was four trucks for the Friday at Rausch,Rob & bill, Chris,Phil and Myself.Rob took the lead with me following behind.After doing a few trail Chris was having trouble with over reving and shooting over the rock,after a quick look at his truck the problem was soon fixed (enough said ay Chris ).Phil was having an overheating problem but not that bad that he couldn't finish the day.We did the ravine that was blocked with fallen trees last time and we all made it out first try.we also did a few water runs and the mud run where i popped the bead.After airing up we was about to hit a few more trails when mine overheated and went into the red,that was me done for the day,off to the jet wash.Even after that it was still getting hot on the way back to the camp site.Thank to Rob and Bill for guiding us throug the trails and to Chris and Phil for joining us.Saturday morning as we were about to leave for Paragon lo and behold i fry another gas pump,no wheeling for me that day.I drops the tank wired the pump to the battery and no go,whack it with a hammer still no go,have a beer hit it again stil no go,i kept repeating the prosses till one beer to many and hit my thumb.After wheeling Chris Von C & Mike after getting a call from Trevor with a part #(thanks Trevor) went to get me a pump(thanks to you two as well).Fitted that night i was all set to wheel the next day.I gets to the gas station and start pumping gas,in one hole and out the other,i forgot to connect the filler tube (well i did have a few beers the day before).Chris led the trails in his Freelander and got cross axeld a few time on rocks smaller than i was picking out of the lugs on my tires ,joking.We were doing the easy trails which was good as i was still worried about my overheating,which thankfully didn't re-occur.After stopping for lunch we split into two groups,Chris taking an easy trail out and us taking a medium which was quite challenging at times.Thanks all for a great week end.

I don't drive a FORD! wait a second I know what you mean (fix or repair daily) lol. I always try and answer, the only time I don't is because I don't hear/feel the phone while driving the Defender.

LOL I don't know what was worse, hanging on the back or bouncing along in the back seat with the dog. I almost lost my head on the back, and I almost bounced out of the back seat trying to hold the dog down. Both made for a fun ride!

On the way home I kept hearing this voice in my head saying, "Put it in third and boot it!".
And it was in a British accent.

Had a great time, would have stayed the whole weekend if not for the overheating problem.

Oh, and Roverchic looks completely different in person.

LOL, all of us up here say that now no matter what the obstacle! Big rock pile to get over, going up a very steep hill, jumping barns while playing Dixie,,,,,,,,,,

Jimmy needs to add a sig that says "Put it in third and BOOT IT!"
