    Al,

    I'd love to come along, just depends on the ball and chain /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif. I'll offer her a back massage then ask her /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif.

    Probably be spectating only though.

    Dave, just pay on the day.

    All,

    I have mailed SilverS3UK, Golf Bygone, riz, and Andiroo about this meeting, but only had a response back from Golf Bygone.

    Unless these people, or others, give a firm commitment to coming - then this meeting is doomed. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Matt,

    Can you find out if you Ibiza mate is coming or not.

    I wanted to try and avoid posting it on other forums. Not that I have anything against them, just that it would be nice to have our own meet without running to other sites to make up the numbers.

    BUT, we may have to. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I'll give it to tomorrow lunch time before I post it on another forum.

    Should also say though, because the Men & Motors are there, and the disruption they cause, we can't have many more than 12. 15-20 is what Well Lane said.

    Is it booked Al?

    What time are you planning on starting?

    Out of interest, how long did it take you to drive up to Scotland on the last run?

    I was aiming to leave here(Dunfermline) about 7 so hopefully get down there about 10!! Maybe 11 depending on how many speed cameras we spot!

    What's the actual address - need to work out how to use the sat-nav!

    Cheers

    OK. Finally managed to get in touch with Barry at Well Lane, he'd been on Holiday.

    The 4th of May is booked! for us!

    People attending on the Definites list above. This cannot change now, no more, no less. Any less and it may affect the cost. And just to confirm, the cost will be £25 per car, regardless of 2wd or 4wd.

    Start time: 9:00am.

    It will not matter if you are a little late. As long as we have at least 1/2 of us there at 9:00am.

    As mentioned before, Men&Motors cameras will be there, with 4-6 of their own cars. Apparently it can take them about an hour to setup their cameras, lights etc. Filming can take about 3/4hr per car (I think?). During their setup, Barry should be able to get a few of our cars done.

    Now, the exciting bit. Barry mentioned that we may want to pick a few of our cars for filming also.

    Firstly, a pre-requisite set by me (seeing I'm organising it), the car must be sporting Audi-Sport.net stickers. I have a few of the old ones left which I will bring along.

    My nominations for cars to be filmed (no guarantees here though):

    1) Andiroo's RS480 (or is RS500 now?)
    2) Dougals RS2
    3) Any tuned S3
    4) Any tuned A3 or another S3, perhaps mine seeing I organised the meeting! (Has to be some perks /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif )

    Any comments/objections/suggestions?

    Guys,

    Just to let you know, I might not be online much this week, if at all. I'm in London at the InfoSec show.

    So if any of you decide to drop-out (hope you don't) please let me know via my mobile number (which will be PM'd to you).

    The reason I need to know about any "drop-outs" is, if the numbers fall too much, I will have to cancel the RR session, and obviously let Well Lane know a day or two in advance.

    Cheers

    Glad everyone enjoyed yesterday. It was a great success overall I think, despite the Men&Motors filming. It was a shame some of you had to wait around, so next time, I'll make sure I book it when M&M aren't filming.

    Barry from Well Lane Turbo Centre was excellent I thought. Very helpful and a good laugh. When I thanked him for having us later on, he said "no problem, they were all decent lads. Which made a change". I guess they must get some right dickheads going there sometimes.

    Anyway, I'd like to thank everyone that came along. I know some of you travelled a bloody long way, so cheers. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    It would be good to get some video/sound - Well worth the trip down. Well organised Al - managed to see most of the grand prix between M&M and the power cut!

    Torque figures were really low on my car and they weren't flat like the previous plots from AMD and Star Performance. I think my car suffers from heat soak quite badly - it felt a bit slow until I had been running up the road a bit and the low torque appeared again! So will speak to some experts(at gti) to get the car sorted and hit the 380bhp with a couple more mods.

    Hello All, great day out/great to meet you all - shame about the power loss (chip and electricity) /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif Thanks to AL for organising this. I'll be off to Interpro in Bristol EOM May to have another run..

    I'm now on the hunt for the cause of mine - however after speaking to Revo, it seems that the 'Fan' problem may have contributed to some of it.. Apparently VAG cars are a bugger to get accurate results from on under RR conditions, and the car has been tuned 'outside' the normal audi tolerances (ie standard figures). VAG intercooler design certainly affects the results under extreme conditions unlike the scoobs.

    can't say that i'll be glued to the TV when the filming featuring rev. bob dickwart whatever he's called will be shown.. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Welcome to the board Simon. Good to have you back. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    It is interesting, and I'm sure a lot of people will be looking forward to seeing what results you get at Interpro. It will either confirm something is wrong with your car or re-map, or if the Well Lane RR doesn't provide enough cooling. Although that doesn't explain R88per's result (which is about right I believe) under the same temp conditions.

    I agree. Does Paul's car have any other engine mods? Also, I was running with Optimax + millers octane booster and the code was set to take advantage of this.
