    It doesnt say what type of replica it is - or what engine it has. (a photo would be useful too!)

    Re: Bargain basement Stratos for sale

    My French isn't great, and may be more literal than idiomatic, but the vendor seemingly says that it's not in a good state, that the chassis has 'gone west', but there's still a Grey card which (apparently....) is 'useful' for the construction or use of a Stratos: "for those who understand, it's good for those passing the end of your road" (sic).

    Eh?

    How very odd, you might think ...... but what do we 'rosbifs' know of the language of Moliere and Maupassant?

    It's for sale by someone who made himself a bit unpopular on this forum a few years ago.

    A naughty one in Brittany! As advertised it's better to "pass the end of our road" with that!

    Of course Chris. The stickers are on top of the paint!
    Seriously, I saw photos of this car under construction. The welding in particular was appaling and several elements of the chassis design missing altogether.
    It was based on the Corse drawings but someone don't know how to read them. Or thinks he knows better.....
    Or, more charitably, didn't have all the drawings to work from.
    Whatever, one to pass on.

    What's this "CG" that's mentioned in the advert? I can't help but think "centre of gravity" but it's obviously not that, unless he's found a way to bend the laws of physics....must be something pretty major for 15000 euros.
