Whhoah Cool

Is that as in stationary and the air compression making it low, as in its higher on the road moving ? Cos if its that low on the road youre going to have to avoid all speed bumps, shows in fields etc....I presume youve modified the horn so it wont catch...that has brought me to an instant standstill a number of times..........potholes filled with water depth unknown at Vanfest for example......

It goes up around 100mm(4") all round with the suspensionpumped up which takes around 2 seconds. so yeah that's pretty much parked up height although the front will go lower.

yeah, I'm still kinda getting used to what settings to drive it in.........there's a pothole outside the Arts Centre which caught me out as I managed to ground the beam end plate a tad on the way through.
