Right lady's and Gentlemen let me firm up a couple of days with TDi and I'll put a poll on this thread and people can vote for the best date!

Sakey
08-05-10, 16:49
Just a thought, will they be ok dynoing autos? Also any word on dates?

johnny g
08-05-10, 16:51
Sounds like a plan - I'll come along - not sure what car though! How do they cater for really low cars?

rob wild
09-05-10, 13:19
Right chaps I'm going to TDi tomorrow night to discuss this so will have dates and details then :) They should be fine with auto's :)

Neil-NA
09-05-10, 14:04
Hoping to have a non slipping clutch for this, if not i might just risk it with the one i have.

Kirk
09-05-10, 14:19
I realy need to run this providing it isnt within the next 3-4 weeks.

Car is pretty much done now minus a few little servicing related things which im going to do this week then move it back home and finish off the last bits there.

Engine runs smooth as silk and responds well so think its a strong motor, just need a figure to prove it :)

Stephendjb
14-05-10, 17:33
Any dates for this yet?

rob wild
14-05-10, 18:01
Ok spoke to TDi and it looks like 19th June is a good day. Going to have to limit this to 20 runners :eyebrows: Please get your names down quick gents :)

jake supra
14-05-10, 20:56

Kirk
10-06-10, 23:04
Har har rob I seen the little comment next to my name! :D

Yeah again I'm disappointed as its looking less like ill make this unless the replacement rad arrives soon and I can sort the tiny teething problems she's got at the minute! :(

I'm working on it!!!

Maybe we should consider rescheduling this given the increasing number of people who aren't able to make it.

I'd prefer to have more time to sort my valve stem seals. (Just to prove it's turbo seals ;))

I was originally interested in this but knew I probably wouldn't be able to make the June date, so I didn't put my name down.

If it is put back until July or August, then hopefully I'll be able to come along.

rob wild
11-06-10, 23:00
Ok guys this is all canceled now.

Kirk
12-06-10, 16:30
July/august time would be good for me rob

11-08-10, 13:11
Anyone up for making this happen in the next cople of months?

rob wild
23-08-10, 19:11
I would still be more than happy to get the organized through TDI or any other dyno place tbh but it just needs member support.

There's also Awesome in Irlam, they have a pretty good 4wd Dynojet Dyno, plus a pretty good setup in general, plus i know some of the lads that work there.
