..all in the forum guide  :)

I prefer everyone to use a hosting site , personally photobucket works for me - I've copied the instructions below ;
Using photobucket

1) log into your own photobucket account

2) place your cursor onto the picture you wish to post within the topic on this forum, you will see four options appear

3)  right click & copy the fourth/bottom option (IMG code)

4) paste the link into the posting

Your picture should now feature in the forum posting.

Remember, if you move or delete the picture within your photobucket account then it will automatically be deleted from this forum

Hi there regarding the wires in the control box ....The red and black are for the motor ...The yellow and grey are for the push button on the left hand side of the handle bar that starts the C5...

That small wheel set-up is similar to a c5 I saw at last years AER at Santa Pod.

Probably not enough time left to get ready for this years event, but if you went for a huge electric motor instead of petrol you would be eligible to go drag racing with us. The c-5000 uses a massive starter motor from a commercial diesel unit sourced from a scrap yard so we're not talking big budgets , just massive smiles and lots of laughs along the way.

Just a thought   ;D
