Re: Still not done Stelvio

The thing about Stelvio being a destination for Elises was more about it being a torture test for the brakes on the way down in the original development of the car, rather than it being a belting driving road, no? Certainly, the only reasons I'd consider it would be as a destination to a continenta...

It’s lovely and clean and the av mileage is eroding nicely [emoji41] Have you lot never heard of shopping.... You do get a few looks rocking up outside Marks and Spen...

I'm another on the not done Stelvio list. My original plan, when I did NC500 a couple of years back was to do something like that every couple of years, but this year obviously looks to be disappearing into doing nothing
So do we need a 2021 Stelvio Euro Tour thread started?

So what is everyone planning post lockdown? When do you think the track days etc will start up again?

I would be happy with being able to drive it on the road for the fun of it.

Drove up to Aberdeen in the dark two weeks ago. Must say they are amazing on dual carriageway on full beam. Ultra crisp.

Re: Walkie Talkies

We have a set of Motorola XTNid PMR's with remote mics, they are completely indestructable, 4Km range in the mountains. Change the codes so you don't hear all the plebs if you're in a high usage area (skiing/boarding) . . . I had one of those and can confirm they are bogs bollocks. Had it stolen at...

Re: Walkie Talkies

We use the cheapest PMR from amazon, clipped onto the front of the shirt.

I have a lead to plug it into the Autocom system but you only need an earpiece in a car with no roof.
