    Hey guys i wonder if theres anyone on here near portsmouth that has any knowlege in suspension/handling setups and could inspect mine for a few beers and give me some suggestions on how to improve it. I'm a complete ingrate when it comes to handling and dont know my arsehole from my elbows.

    Cheers in advance

    No probs, am sure you will survive the ring just remember its not a race its a spirited drive with no oncoming traffic :)

    yeah we can sort something out when your back and i look forward to hearing about it as a Ring trip is on my list of things to do.

    Lots of people near by! We should get a little hampshire meet on the go!

    I'm only 35 mins up the road in Basingstoke, used to live in Pompey though :)

    We have had a couple of south coast meets in the past hyear down at Beaulieu motor museum but that has mostly been Me and a few guys from the Dorset/bournemouth way like JtotheD and Future on here.

    Would be up for a Pompey meet as always good to meet more forum members. We could always go down the proper chav route and meet up on Portsdown hill and annoy all the proper boy racers in their souped up saxo 1.1`s etc.

    Also as bonfire night is coming up we could always go down the pyro technic route and buy some fireworks and go let them off on portsdown hill and have a meet at the same time lol

    Yeah the burger van on the Hill is legendary as is the monster burger they make lol

    Yeah fireworks over pompey is good fun have done it a few years ago its kinda like raining down fire onto pompey town you just have to find one of the little car parks without too many doggers and teenage couples shagging as they done appreciate the pyro technics as such lol.

    Nov 5th is a monday this year so we could have an evening meet after work or maybe sort something out for either the saturday or sunday as we could then meet in daylight and wait for darkness before unleashing hell on pompey town

    If we could get 4+ people and all buy £10-15 worth of explosives (remember bigger is better in this case) it should be a reasonable show :)

    If you go in the local meets section of the forum you can start a thread in the south east section and we can try to sort out a Pompey meet...
