I was thinking about one fiarly soon. I need some wires, connectors, and possibly a couple of motors myself. The rate for you, however, would be a pint, with a ribena chaser.....

Really?

MPX green 6 pin connectors. GC = 51p per pair. HK = $3.99 for 10 pairs = 25p per pair. I make that twice the price!

Er, there are cheaper shipping options. For example, say I want 20 pairs of connectors (I actually only need 9, but I'm bound to bugger some up).

GC = £10.20 plus £2.53 postage. (1st recorded)
HK = $7.98+ plus $2.99 postage (International airmail)

I make that £12.73 for GC, and £6.86 for HK. So HK is still less than 54% of the cost of GC. That's quite a saving if you are prepared to wait a few more days for your stuff...

Okay girls steady on!

After 2 of these Andy please: -

Motor

Will even throw in 2 translucent straws and an umberella for your Ribena if you are a good boy!

Gary, appreciate the Giant Cod thing but their equivalent motors are 11 quid each, I can get 2 for the same money if I piggy back Andys order - Although the final cost does depend how much this Ribena stuff is! Suspect

There's plenty of designs you can choose from on the forums, with a few slight mods to make it unique, but to be honest the Morback does take some beating, with the mods I have done to it should make it a perform better.
