    I like that a lot. I've never really paid attention to these except in sunburst or red - that looks so sharp in black.

    I wish my shed was bigger! I'd love to have a crack at making one of these sometime, I don't think it'd fit on my bench at the minute...

    Are they ok on the car battery? We removed my OEM one as it drained the battery in a couple of weeks.

    Lipo all looks a bit stressful to me - they seem kind of dangerous to just leave for months (I don't run my car very often) on their own in the shed. Is there any truth to that?

    I'm tempted to stick an exciting motor / esc in my dark impact. It's currently got a Tamiya sports tuned, but not sure that that's significantly different to a normal 540. I've no idea what I should be looking for - @DethBeard what packages were you looking at?

    Why not? If you want the thing they have, keep calling.

    Only if they're not in the business of offering customer service for a really expensive purchase. I'd find it kind of offputting (in many ways, not just impoliteness) if someone I wanted to throw £10k's at couldn't even find the time to call me back.

    remember recording from the top 40 countdown on cassette and trying to chop the track as soon as the DJ started talking.

    Yep. We had a guy at school who did this religiously every week, then we'd all tape his tape to have something to listen to in the car that week.

    Complaint letters addressed to the CEO always get resolved quickly

    I've done this many times -. Professional letter to the CEO gets you a relatively high up director contacting you personally with their contact details and almost immediate resolution / explanation / compensation.

    I'm under no illusion that the CEO actually read it or anything, but it's definitely worth the cost of a special delivery letter.

    If its anything like grape picking its long, hard and painful work. Well my middle class capitalist pig body thought so in France.

    Sounds like the strawberry picking I did occasionally in the summers at sixth form.

    In my head: hazy summer morning, chatting to the farmer about butter and cider, hedgehogs snuffling around protecting their strawberries.

    In reality: painful work, competitively trying to pick more by weight than colleagues before days quota is made, unable to move the next day.

    I think it's probably the hardest job I ever had.

    Stations around us (checked 4 between Chiswick and Ladbroke grove) are dry now. I have a trip today and not enough to complete it, so will have to continue looking ..

    I used to play Necromunda in the late '90's . That was great - is Kill Team a kind of equivalent (albeit with proper armies rather than gangs).

    edit - it's not! the new equivalent to Necromunda is... Necromunda. I didn't know a new version was around

    Maybe - if you were going on a land grab for customers you might like the situation where 90% of your competitors were put out of business by an event that you could ride...
