Definately man, 2 trips back and forth is a massive pain in the arse and not something I'd consider. Last night ripperton (of TTXGP fame) rang me and said he has a van we can use. Hobbit if you have one too that'd be perfect, we should be easily able to easily fit the lot between 2 vans. The quoted size is 4 cubic metres but I think it'd probably be less than that. There's 20 26" laced motors and a few smaller boxes of sundries (controllers, throttles etc) + 2 or 3 boxes of bare motors which are pretty small so that shouldn't be a drama. Last time everything fitted into a single large van but I had less motors that time and I didn't pay attention to exactly how much room they took up because someone else delivered it for me.
Methy do you know what size the boxes are ? I haven't actually had the crystalyte boxed ones before but I imagine they're the same as the 9Cs given the motors are essentially the same physical size. 63x63x25cm ?
Actually hobbit can you measure the available cargo space in your van ? We might even be able to get away with that alone which would be ideal given you only live around the corner from me.
We could stand the boxes up 5 wide x 2 deep x 2 high (1.25m x 1.3m x 1.3m) or some other longer configuration if that doesn't fit.
Thanks for doing your part to help guys, if I don't have to hire a van/courier that's money we all save on the final price
