  1. Hi Ryan
    Clutch is standard cable operated. My only mod was to cut down the pedals as described in the build manual and bend them sideways a bit.

    Hi Mick, I see more damage is being found caused by the recovery service. That should give you more clout on your claims against them hopefully. I wanted to ask you about your clutch pedal. I remember that it had a shorter travel than that of my Nova ice. Is yours cable or hydraulic? Mine is currently cable and travels around 3 inchs further than yours.

    Regards
    Ryan
