two heads/dnar/fouling plugs/jets

ok so anyway, took the g banger into the carby guy AGAIN today, he stuck it on the machine and had a measure, said it was reading at about 3.5% carbondioxide (i think he said carbon dioxide) he said anything less than about 4 is ok, anyway he rejetted it for me, he said from the factory they run 66 series primaries, it was running 65's, so anyway he replaced them with 63's and ran it thought the machine, c02 was down to 1.5% he also suggested i switch plugs to bpr 5fs-15's rather than bpr 5fs's, he said if they still foul to try a bpr 4fs-15... anyway i set her up again took her for a spin, felt like there was alittle less grunt, but livable.

Wanted to buy - HR disc brake rims

Wanted to buy...
2 x stock width HR disc brake rims. I'd consider a set of four if you don't want to split them, also consider 6 inchers but prefer stockies. In Brisbane. ReaperHR, I'm looking in your direction !

Canberra/Queanbeyan tune-ups

Great site - really helpful with lots of useful information. Hopefully someone can help me. I just moved to Canberra and the 308 in my WB ute needs a good tune-up. Thing is I don't know who to trust or where to take it. Anyone know or can recommend a good mechanic in the Canberra/Queanbeyan area who could give the old girl a good seeing to (mechanically speaking, that is!)

I believe these are anti - tramp bars? Are they legal to be fitted to road cars? (I doubt it)

I don't really want them, if anyone does, let me know - make an offer.
