:lol: Nice one, that about sums it up...although I often come within arms reach (maybe a bit more) of Skippy and his pals, and they couldn't care less. :wink: :?

Hi, loving your Astute, just one question is your TTC a special build or box stock? I know it not box sock for the original Astute I just mean a stock TTC? Thank you.

Yeah they are a good transmission, I have one in my original shelf Super Astute and one in my runner “Works” Astute. The only reason for the question is I know some folk have swapped TTC out for stealths, I didn’t see the point. The only downside with the TTC for me is the .5 pitch spur.
