i'll retract my previouse comment johnny at that money you cant beat your little sport track i'm glad it was a bit of banter between pals unlike the usual pish that you get on here. and as for the best 4x4's i have a range rover classic a new ranger crewcab (crap 4x4) and the wife has a P38. the best offroader i ever had was a lada niva cossack went anywhere but if i had the dosh i wouldnt mind that TD5 crew cab

Your right I probably would look less gay on a BMX because it wouldnt be the same colour as my light red (almost pink) SPORTRAK.

As I said to you on the phone you have done a grand job with that motor and hope to one day have something similar.

However, thats enough blowing smoke up your arse. I know why you have made it like that and im sure you (the wife) will be rewarded 10x for your efforts.

I still stand by my comments that LANDIES arnt suited for all types of sport, Just like a dog isnt for all types of hunting. The reason I like my sportrak so much is that it is supremely quiet, small, cheap and light. In an ideal world I think i would have a TD5 crewcab like the one you made and a small little jap mobile to smash about.

I will put my pics up of my gaymobile tomorrow.

It would be nice to hear some constructive comments wheather others think that LANDIES do everything or some foreign motors can offer a little something differant to the game.

Wishing you all the best,

Johnny

:clapper: :clapper: :clapper: johny wait till you need a bit of power and room for the game and dogs were you going to put your stuff i will one day have a landrover but at this moment i have to relie on my legs and a beat out old suburu but you couldnt give me asuzuki unless we were lamping on beaches only or sand

Well Gyppo,

Have you managed to just sell your landie then. I heard its a good motor and had plenty of game in it over the years you had it.

I Know its a bit small, but my truck is spot on for my needs.

Have to say though I am a bit surprised in how much petrol it drinks. Heavon for bid carrying out some 250mile journays in it. Mind you with the amount of fields you have up your way lamping on sand is never really going to be an option for you.

Well good luck with your new lamping motor.

All the best,

Johnny
