""There was a time in the not too distant past when our rules allowed karts from other parts of the world to run here. That it was changed is truly tragic..." Which rules were changed?"

Dear Don, please accept my sincerest apologies for not replying earlier. I only just saw and understood what "friend request" was and meant. I would be very grateful for Parilla information. my e-mail is mmansell@bigpond.net.au  or  www.martezengineering.com.au

This is what the Mansell Victa Special number 2 looks like. Number 3 is on the way with patterns at the foundry and barrel in the mill at this point in time.

Don, thankyou for the drive of your kart at Numurkah, just wish Fiona was not in a hurry to get to Beechworth. I really enjoyed it. You must have a run in mine anytime.

Hope the return trip to Perth was relaxing, plenty of time there to sample a few fine reds no doubt.

Cheers TT

Thanks Don
I learnt the hard way some time ago with a victa head,
I am now very careful with chemicals,
I have had some success with inox witch will loosen the corrosion,
I feel like a archaeological explorer with a little scraping hear and then there,
It seems like it will come clean just will take a while.
