Hi Rich

was just looking at some of your pics from KORC; looks like an awesome weekend, its a shame i couldnt make it in the end!

Anyway i was just wondering about the pneumatic cylinders controlling the dislocation at the rear, is it permanently pressurised or do you have it set up so you can control the pressure from inside the cab?

There just open vented at the moment but i do plan on putting a valve block in to control them so i can jack it if i ground on a brakeover.

It promises an article on Zero in the coming months, the mag isn't big enough to fit in the detailed write up's on here and SS whilst the build has been going on, must be one of the most watched threads ever.

I truely shocked by the interest in my build with 20k hits on here and 12k on pirate and 7k on zukikrawler's it coming up to 40k and its not even finnished yet Shocked
But i will say if it wasn't being watched so much the quality of the work wouldn't be as good. I felt i had to keep up a standard for the people watching.
Big thanks for that Smile
