Accidently found out what my christmas present is from my parents : ( Got home from work and found it on our doorstep covered in stickers from the company who sent it. It even has a warning sticker on it which helps confirm my suspicions.

    No. RC plane related. The warning sticker says 'CAUTION. Contains lithium polymer batteries'. I asked for a set of lipo's for the new plane I am building so I am guessing its them.

Had a couple of people today ask "why does your shirt say 'the new austin 7' and then have a picture of a mini on it?". Oh dear...

Great way to spend the first day of my week off. Waiting around in a hospital for my sister. Hope she is ok. Had to cancel going karting tonight for my birthday though :-(

    I can go another night. Just means I won't get there at the beginning and will get little sleep before work the next day. Plus I will most likely ache.

    Yes it is but its a pre facelift so should be the F40 not the M32 box which is the weaker of the two.

Mondeo's hand brake now operational again. The question is, for how long? Place your bets now!!!

    I always leave my car in gear now because I know how bad the hand brake is. I reckon a month is about right. The mechanism is a poor design so it keeps seizing up causing the cable to stretch.
