    I have my popcorn out and I'm enjoying the show. Seriously guys, don't publicize your IP squabbles on public forums. Use direct email to license holders. Fighting on the internet is like dancing with your sister. It seems like fun at the time but you know its not going to go anywhere.

    Hi Guys, Thanks for the feedback. I have had a quick look at the sites, but mostly teh builders blogs.

    OK, I'm a noob to the SA forums so please splash me. Now thats over moving on, I'm 95% decided on building an i550 having worked up to it on several smaller projects. Are there any around Sydney that I can have a look at before I make my final decision? I'm in Canberra for work often as well, and I know there are some in the ACT. Also whats the best way to go in terms of hull configuration? I'll be doing social twilight racing and taking my youing family out on weekends. Cheers Tim
