Re: Sphere longevity

Great news!

Re: Dora 2

Off to the polisher first thing in the morning, then hopefully a full day turning spanners.... I tracked down these guys years ago and was disappointed to find they’d gone. I thought for a while...

Re: Dora 2

Frustrating when u buy new & mention u don’t want old stock! I guess beggars can’t be choosers. They’ll still be way better than what’s on the car now.

Re: Dora 2

Yes it was a toss up between Dora & Red Bull but I decided Dora would be quicker to get on the road first. Red Bull has a trans leak as well as strut issues and I knew I wouldn’t have time to R&R all...
