  1. I had the same problem once, I sprayed a small burst of WD40 into the switch and it cured them.

    Exmo Vs SS 2B

    The Exmo doesn't handle like a pig, I had mine for 5 years and really enjoyed the whole time with it, OK is not in the same league as the more expensive kits bot for a first intoduction into kit cars it is good fun especially if you can buy it at the right price. if you do decide to go for it the main place to watch is where the front end joins the bulkhead this is where mine eventually failed but that was after almost 60000 miles.
  3. Thanks to all who managed to turm out for the meeting last night, really enjoyable meeting, I had a really good drive down and back despite the usual road closures and diversions- I saw parts of Newcastle last night that even I didn't know existed, 110 miles round trip in the kit in t-shirt weather , whats not to like Hope to see you all at the next meeting at the Church Mouse Chester le street in a couple of weeks time.
  4. I live about 60 miles away if that's any help

The meetings at the Church Mouse are monthly on the last Wed. of each month but we also hold a monthly meeting at the Old Farmhouse Yarm Rd Darlington on the second Thursday of each month so you get two chances per month to come and meet us.
