Also Mike don`t forget the Scim has those Huge strong trailing arms to slow down any sideways shifting.
I once had to take my GTC out with the watts link removed and it didn`t drive too much different than with them fitted :lol:

I've had it 10 odd years
I`ve had my First GTE for 30 odd years, and some of my spares I have had just as long.
Since my eviction I have found stuff I too had forgotten about.

God knows what my kids will do when I shuffle off this mortal coil.
