    I’ve found it difficult to load for a while now. 30seconds to a minute. Hopefully this’ll be sorted soon.

    Fingers crossed it's all good again now.

    Well, it's certainly a lot faster as far as I'm concerned.

    Re: forum issue

    Not only is this forum very slow but it’s lacking in posters, even some of the hardened contributors seem to have gone silent. I am a hardened Pinto fan but I also think we should have had more tuning articles on 16v engines, let’s face that’s what has been fitted in most modern day to day cars.

    Regarding 15 inch wheels on Escorts, 15 inch Forest tyres don’t look the part but 15 inch Tarmac do. A 15 inch Tarmac tyre has a slightly lower Rolling radius than a 13 inch gravel tyre keep the gearing almost identical. Modern 13 inch Tarmac tyres are far too low in profile with their roller skate appearance in my opinion, making the final drive gearing far too low. A nice looking 13 inch Tarmac tyre on an Escort was the good old Dunlop A2.

    You were very lucky to find a decent set of genuine Mag Minilites.

    Ulimately only a small perecentage of forum users ever posted much in the way of content. they have mostly moved onto other things, and even these still active tend to hang out on FB for the instant chat/gratifcation. I dont think this forum is any different to others in that respect. i now post very little, but thats not because im on FB instead, i just have so much else to do there is not the time, for me car projects, hell even going racing are practically a thing of the past my business seems to sap all my time and energy. Its hard to find teh time to put You Tube content together and that for me is like being paid to advertise!

    I was wrong in my statement earlier. It's still bloody hopeless.

    I'm still in contact with the man trying to sort it out. Not that he's having much luck so far anyway.

    That's one of the questions I've asked him, but he hasn't given me a straight answer yet tbh.

    I think possibly the Rally cam test have not only drained you mentally and physically but also financially, the cost of all the cams, the Dog itself with it’s new forged pistons, long rods and Burton head all come at a very high cost, let alone all the fuel and electricity that’s been consumed.

    My main interest has always been tuning engines to give more power, especially head development and Dyno work whether it be static or Rolling Road. You have managed to give us an insight to all that and have produced honest and accurate power figures that no other engine builder has done out there on the Net. I thank you for what you have done and achieved.

    40 years years ago I set up in business in Road Transport, now some days have very little rewards for one’s efforts, more traffic on the Roads, temporary lights every few miles, and some drivers out there seemingly wanting to crash into you and then to try and blame you for it. I seem to have to work harder and longer hours than I did four decades ago so I know what it’s like. I still wouldn’t want to change it at this late stage in my life,we just have to dig in deep and crack on, that’s the way the Tax Mam sees it anyway.

    To me this forum although open to the general public has been more like a private members one where we can talk sensibly, help people out and learn all in the process unlike FB where family friends and others can keep a watchful eye over what we are doing and spending. If this is really the end of the Road for this forum and your videos I would like to thank you very much for all your articles and contributions, all the Breast has a good friend of mine says when he sips his first pint of Guinness.
