Pit Stop 2015

Ok Guys

So what do you want from the Pit Stop tent this year? Obviously there are limitations, and I may need to try and persuade volunteers to help, but what would you like to see?

As per the previous years, there will be the human pitstop as well as the van one!

There will be free diagnostics (including IDS and Laser 2000) as per previous years, and free advice, tweaks, bits for sale etc... but if you want anything specific you want from it shout up soon :wink:

I would be happy too Craig.

I have also been told that Karl will do PRV/SCV changes on Mk7s this year for the cost of the parts. If you want this then let him know to "reserve" your place!

Some of us had been drinking since Thursday night... and kipped on the seats across the van :wink: suprisingly comfy given the size discrepancy...

Anyway other than tappet adjustment, is there anything specific you would like me to arrange?

We need someone that wants new discs fitted to their Mk5 so we can demonstrate how to get the old ones off :?:

And Mk 6, after doing mine, I decided it would be easier to use use Semtex next time.

Perfection is reached, not when there's nothing left to add, but when there's nothing left to remove.
