Fiat @ Road Atlanta

Post by chrisrupnik » Wed Nov 21, 2018 7:57 am

Visited the VDCA event at Road Atlanta and was thrilled to see this Fiat 128 run by Shea Brown absolutely tear it on up on the track - finishing 3rd overall! Is Shea a member here?

Guys,

Take them into a photo editor and save them as another format (like PNG) then re attach them. This is an iPhone bug - coincidentally they appear fine on an iPhone.

It's a bug in how phpbb interprets the files. It is annoying as hell, but I don't write the code and it doesn't happen often enough to worry about

No dist, it uses an Electromotive system. They are typically crank fired.

No thermostat housing either, just a plate with a spigot for the rad. hose.
