Technical Day
Sun 20th Nov 2005
organised by Central Scotland

Car Count : 20
 
[ show pre-run info ]

Our third Tech Day of the year and as always for the November event the day was cold and dismal. A bumper turn out of twenty cars made an appearance at some point during the day and six of our members took advantage of the discounted wheel alignment offer at the Dreadnought Garage in Callander, even better when afterwards all repoted a marked improvement in handling and cornering. Some of the other jobs being done were:- fitting spot lights, mending hoods and diagnosing an idle problem...which led to a satisfactory outcome. Lunch was a welcoming hot burger from the barbeque and a chance to talk with fellow members around the chimmea.
Good to see Stewart and Stevie who were on their first club event. Many thanks to Richard & Eileen for their usual hospitality and to the staff of the Dreadnought Garage.

As usual another great day out in Callander.

Thanks to Richard and Eileen for their excellent hospitality and for organising the alignment at Dreadnought.

The car was nowhere near as twitchy on the run back down the A81, so for anyone who has not had ther's checked, make sure you get it done soon.

As always, a great time was had (albeit a brief one).  Well worth getting the alignment done - my front wheels were way out, and I noticed a huge difference on the way back!

Another very enjoyable day, and what a turnout. A very big thank you, again, to Richard and Eileen for being such generous hosts.

Diagnostics all clear now and idling beautifully.

A carpeted garage - the ultimate in luxury? Must get one!!
