    Tatras in the american army

    <sigh>If you're going to the ungrateful flag waving bigot thing, d'ya think you could at least check some facts first? It may surprise you to hear Tom Hanks didn't win WW2 either. God Bless America.

    Cheers Duncan, that's spot on! I know from Land Rovers that locking diffs make a massive difference to available traction, the same is true with the later ETC (traction control) system which achieves a similar effect by braking a spinning wheel. They're also the fastest way to break your axle...

    Wow that's looking good, I can totally understand why you'd be cruising round in the sunshine rather than taking photos in the workshop! :driver:

    Tatra street legal?

    It's the same width as the civilian trucks last time I looked. Biggest problem will be the import/emissions rules as with a lot of stuff you never got over there.

    Thanks Duncan, it's actually better if you can take a close-up photo and I get one made with the correct information on it - using yours would be faking it and hence breaking the law. The measurements in mm would also help, just to make sure it's right. Your truck is looking great, if I manage...

    Duncan, Yes I'm referring to your friend's truck again - long story but the planets seem to have re-aligned since last year and I may end up with a Tatra after all. Just trying to silence the voices in my head (and my bank balance) telling me what a stupid idea it is:cookoo: If it would be of...

    Just a quick question - can anyone post a picture of the ID plate that's supposed to be on the base of the driver's seat? Found a company who make replacement items and it would smooth the registration process, if I were to ignore the voice of common sense and buy a truck ;)

    Spotted for sale on mobile.de

    More looking for money than trucks - the last one I looked at was excellent but the exchange rate went downhill at the wrong moment :( Anyone want to pay me lots of money for rewiring their truck? :p

    That's the second most lethal looking power tool attachment since the angle grinder chainsaw discs :shock:

    volvo c303 axle parts-wanted

    We're not big on trim as we mostly use the axles under race cars, we may be able to locate bits if all else fails though. Axle parts including brakes, steering, seals, bearings, etc. we can usually source. I must stress we're not a business so sometimes it can take a while to track bits down &...
