That's what lying down with headphones on and arms around your head to drown out the noise and pain does to you :P

I don't really mind loud music, but I just don't like much of the music they put on at Whitwick. I wouldn't mind if they were playing Led Zeppelin or the Stones, but I guess I'm a bit old fashioned, and unlike most people my age I don't like pop music :P Anyway, it was a fun event, and I got a chance to help with the running of the competition, so I don't mind too much :D

Before you criticize another person, first walk a mile in their shoes. Then, when you critisize them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.

Thanks guys :D
It uses the same internal comonents as the original, but there is more weight over the wheels, in the new version so it grips better and it's quicker 8)

To tell the truth I actually preferred the old Terrordactyl though. I somehow get the feeling something of that speed is too fast for its own good. :-?
