10x better today! The attendance is more than double of yesterday, and the sun was baking down!
gutted i missed it hope everyone enjoyed it
Awesome day compaired to yesterday
Superb day...met some old friends and new ones,am just so glad how the day panned out...........annoyed the sprint couldn't be done but dang the blue slush-puppies and the wild boar burgers were sweet.
Big Thanks to Stacey
also my wingman Joe and all who helped me in my little indiscretion
Just don't start calling me Maverick ok, Iceman.
I'm gutted I spent 4 hours cleaning my car yesterday then popped out for fuel for the early start in the morning when all but one of my front near side wheel nuts decided to jump ship!!! My wheel hit my brembo my brembo broke away from the hub and smashed a whole through my alloy and shatter my disc too! Will post some pics on my thread shortly. Was really looking forward to meeting all you guys and running on the strip absolutely gutted!!!
Unlucky Don, I was looking forward to seeing your creation aswell! Hope it's not too much trouble to repair!!
Not too bad just alloy, hub, discs and pads everything else is fine my brembo saved the day cos it lodged itself inside my wheel and stopped the front end from hitting the floor.
Awespome day today, i totally got burnt!!! I turned up and got sent to the carpark, even tho i said i was getting a club stand pass, they seemed to be having none of it bum rah! Good day tho, I had a wonder over, some nice audis! Bit shy tho didnt know who was who so didnt say out
Me too, i look like mr crabby..., was a great day, with a great turn out and stunning cars, nice to meet old and new....
Brill day, big thanks to mum (Stacey) and Mark for generally being awesome both days!
Nice to meet some more peeps and beat a v12 q7
I thought some of the show and shine stuff was a bit... Swirly but there were some awesome ones aswell.
Bad news though don, gutted for you mate!
Ps I have a fairly impressive tshirt tan! Lol
Dane and Aaron representing ASN on the strip
Yes mate! I got murked lol
Fawt your car was ace mate love the way it pulls looks ace and goes well dude
I'm having a hybrid soon I think
Hi guys, still cooling off after a great day at GTI International. Baking hot as in 2010. Good to see so many A-S.net members on the stand but disappointing that there weren't more of you helping us to demolish the HUUGE chocolate cake that Stacey bought along!
I had a great day and was especially pleased with my sprint times of 6.58s (revs died off the line), 6.02s and 6.05s 0-60mph and best of 14.4s ET. At last I know what the car is capable of in its current guise (Stage 1 APS Remap) and pretty good for my 1st ever time on a 1/4 mile sprint. I think I'm hooked now though...
Extra special thanks to Stacey for sorting out the stand passes, cake (see above) and BBQ. I've attached some of my pics from the day below. Hope to see some of you at AITP 2011 on 7th August, when I may be bringing the wife & kids with me (whatever am I thinking... ).
Let me know when your next in chelt dude as, with any luck, mine should be finished by then and we can have another go
Think a trip to pod is on the cards very shortly
I went on the Saturday; it was still good however Sunday sounded busier, however as is wasnât busier a friend talked me into going on the handling circuitâ¦..lol
My car is a 1.8T and standard bar the cat back,
I am making my excuses alreadyâ¦â¦.
Wet track so my car spun in first and then changed to second and no boost, also standard suspension meant it rocked like a boat round the corners; however I was quite happy with my timeâ¦.. LAMO
Yea thatâs meâ¦â¦at the bottom
dammit! i went the wrong day by the looks of it
Can't predict these things mate... I could only do saturday too... I wouldn't have survived the heat on sunday anyway lol...
I arrived late sun.. camped over.. Got too meet few of u..
After only finishing the car friday i wasnt to happy about running it.. but in back of head i just wanted to gage a rough time..
Just after i set off my dash pinged so let off and looked down.. Luckily it was the abs so planted it down again and managed a 13.3..
All it all still very happy.. early 4s next year
What a scorcher! Burnt today though... A couple of my fave Audis from the show:
Not an Audi but
More pics here:
Although I was only there for the morning yesterday, I was really impressed with the turnout and the weather....
Good turnout on ths stand and always good to meet a few of the regulars and also to meet a few new faces as well.
Come to think of it, our stand had a fair few cars on it and thats good considering its mainly a VW show...so well done all for turning up.
I have a few pics too, so will post them up later on
Shame about the turnout saturday and weather, but good to see sunday was a better turnout. Will try and get photos up at somepoint, got a vid of dane on the 1/4 mile too. Nice to meet a few of you again. Looking forward to AITP now and a rolling road day too if it gets arranged.
How can I get aitp tkts???
Audis in the Park - What is AITP?
yeh ur probably right lol was still a good day mind
I only took one good pic really
big que for the strip on Sunday!
Race Wars eat your heart out!
Did you have your rolled up 5 large?
I might of had a rolled up fiver in my pocket... I should've bet the man with the v12 q7 I bet he was loaded.
lol what was ur fastest time in the end Dane? also does your clutch still work?
Shockingly yes I still have a clutch i did slip once on the way back on Saturday but it hasn't done since.
I tryed 3k launches on Sunday to save the clutch but they didn't work as well as the big 5k! Fastest from the weekend was 13.91 with a 5.19 second 0-60
Thats good going bud - good work.
Half glad I couldn't make it in honesty, my clutch can't be far from end of life, and I'm pretty sure that some runs up the strip with high power launches would have finished it off
I saw a women take the Q7 down the strip are you sure it was a bloke?....
ther was a bloke n a woman driving it
Apparently the woman was better at it lol
they always are in my mind but when it comes to the real thing................................................. lol
great times mate! u looked have nailed the launches on saturday a bit later in the day! beat soo many off the line
An S3 should just about beat anything of the line, with the weight and traction
