i have noticed a similar thing with my car sporadically, aqng i can only put it down to certain areas i park it wont open car (or lock it) and other areas it works from a far distance.....even seems to be different with weather, range seems to be better in cooler weather or
wet weather, when there is more moisure in the air.

awesome i really admire your drive and passion. your living the dream having your own track, that is way cool.

i have a mate with 30 acres near Yea he lives 45 min away. he bought this probably 17 years ago and we used to go there quite
a lot. he has a small mx natural track and the property backs onto state forest for trail riding as well.
his dream which i am sure he will do, is to build a american style barn on the property and retire there. his only problem is he is so busy with work that he does not use it as often and finds himself going up there to maintain it, that and many old bikes restoring keeps him very busy.

shame JO as i always wanted to have a blast up there, my stage of life at present never aligned with your generous
offers to come and join in.

are you tired of the upkeep, has it been 5 years you have had it?

 may be wrong and stand to be corrected and this is only my hunch

i reckon the Local club see CD as a good money spinner for VMX mag and wanted more of the take, as this was reported a few years back.

 i reckon they have to decided to part company and run their own event to increase their revenue. these type of events are booming at present and why not, give the punters what they want.

i have always wondered why is there a restriction on the amount of events run at green park, has this not been a venue for 40 odd years or so?

Time machine, but then again i would use it to go back to 1979 and nail Monique Van der Vlught.

I don't think you thought this through Hoony, you really think this young Monique is going to fancy an old Hoony that steps out of his time machine

spot on Geoff, i never think anything through.........i even owned an Evil Kwaka once.

you can get those small torches with Map Gas, i think this may even have a hotter flame than propane.

fast flowing sweeping tracks where i get to use the whole gearbox and a 5th gear straight into a 4th gear sweeping left hander that then switches to a right hander and another 5th gear staright.

The thing with bbq’s galore is they aren’t licensed converters so they don’t know what they are really doing they just chuck the reg on and a universal injector which drill 54 is close for a cast bar burner.

As Hoony said lpg has a higher heating value so when you convert you size on mj/hr so lpg and Nat using the same mj doesn’t necessarily equal the same heat you can go incrementally bigger bit go to big and it’ll burn floaty and even though there is more gas there won’t be enough air able to flow through the burner so it won’t get hotter after a point.

Also a lot of gas taps do or don’t have turn down adjustments this is the low setting so if you convert an lpg bbq to natural and when you turn it back to low it is to low and goes out this is the turn down sometimes there is a screw on the gas tap to adjust this some times it’s pull apart the taps and size the turn down hole that can be a pain.

But you won’t blow your self up with natural gas it’s heaps safer than lpg but there’s is differences like heat value products emitted from burnt natural gas is a lot more than burnt Lpg lpg is heavier than air natural gas floats away.

good info frosty its due to a test run tomorrow, thanks for the info on the low fire turn down. also good Info TT5 Matt re solder if too large.

well done Pokey, i was wondering why my jets in the kit did not match the threads in my BBQ differnet pitch and indeed looked imperial.

i have done my research and conversed with a gas combustion engineer and can now make an informed decision for orifice sizing.

as Momus said i need a #54 drill to ream out my original jets. i guessing he (Momus) has this knowledge as well
