    Quick rant thread.

    As a driver of a ford Ranger 2016 on a daily bases I have to say I'm pretty happy with what they do. Its a work vehicle. I don't drive it up maintains ,riverbeds or carry live stock. But I do carry supply's ladders and scaffolding etc. But the real reason I have it is to tow things...... car transporter, race car and a tray full of tools, spares, ezyup etc and all my race kit in the back seat, and still room in the front. When other manufactures start building outside of their comfort zone they will produce over priced under rated vehicles like the Xclass (I put the x5 in this category) or cheap unreliable junk like The Great Wall. There's a reason the Ranger is the top selling vehicle. Like 65 to 1

    update... pukekohe last month saw a great weekend of racing. On the old track. while I am sorting out some small niggles I did manage a 1.10.9 still plenty more in the car , its just me that's letting the team down. things I did... new diff ratio and LSD preformed fantastic. dropped the rear 15mm and tightened up the rear sway bar. new tires. This all made the car fell more settled on the track. things that failed..... alternator wouldn't charge until it was doing 4krpm (now fixed $368) thanks Glen rear tires rub not by much so will cut an extra 20mm out of the wheel arch. Accelerator linkage/cable at the peddle box which brings me to todays post. I don't normally get jealous of other guy work trades but sometimes I wish I could use a lathe/mill machine. I needed a part made up and went and seen a mate who knocked up this pin with clip. cant buy them and the original was too long by 7mm and kept catching.
