"I once allowed a friend of mine to take a spin around his farm in my Mk. II U.C. and he promptly took out over 150 feet of newly installed fence when he drove through a gate and caught the right track on the first post.He was going ''BALLS TO THE WALL''when he went through and the fence was turned into about 3 or 4 hundred feet of ''cable'',( every inch of which wrapped in and around every bogie and track piece). It took about 3 hours work with a torch and diagonal pliers to rid the track of fencing. That wasn't the worst of it-he actually expected me to pay part cost to repair damage-(told him to piss-off naturally). Cheers,Cliff Ladouceur. "
