Re: [Syncro_T3_Australia] Fw: [Syncro] Digest Number 5615 vibration problems.

Hi Phil,
Think this should get you in. They claim membership from 36 countries at last count. Perhaps its time to organise a Syncro Olympics. I fancy myself for the distance events. I think you would get the gold medal for the Concours de Elegance.
 

Hope it prove fruitful.
