    Hi Guys..been lurking around here for a while.

    I own an XR5 and I love it..Actually I have owned 3 XR5's now, so I'm an addict.

    Duglet alerted me to over here, and has been an active member on my new forum, plus gave me some great advice when I was developing it.

    Thanks heaps Duggie..

    We had a little falling out due to Umm...poor management of that site.

    Plus I am starting my own Parts on line box and thought it best I delete my account at XR5T...
