Re: DB18 gearbox fail!

Re: DB18 sports special- engine number

Dave, when you’ve found it can you let me know the details including chassis and body number either on www.DB18.org or on www.dloc-members.com and I can let you know what we have in the archive on the car.
Thanks

Re: Special Sports head torque settings

Eric, I have to confess to some penny pinching. While Blockley and Longstone wanted £200 a tyre (with tube and fitting) I asked my local tyre supplier and he came up with a Maxxis at £88 and £15 for the inner tube.
