Congratulations from another 80 owner. What a grand find.

Yes join LRSOC very helpful and excellent forum.

Are you a member of any other club, if not its worth joining an ALRC competitive club as you'll find lots of dinosaur like me who have been around series for years an will have spares and lots of knowledge. It's easier to meet them as the LRSOC are somewhat disparate but we turn up in many clubs He who dies with the most toys wins Smile
