      Looking good..I like that battery setup..is it vented in any way? Just wondering based on some recent battery discussion here.
      If your gas cap light comes on even if you think you tightened the cap, try pulling on the cap as you tighten it. Worked for me.

      This won't happen before WiTW, so I guess it's VMR710's for now.
      Glad you are set for WiTW. I stopped posting specific dyno days for my car on the forums because things always come up and you end up getting alot of



      I'm probably going to WiTW so can't wait to see this car in person.

      um, its a public 2 lane highway.. you wont be going more than 40 tops.. if you can drive faster than that on the dragon.. you have skills.. and you will probably get a ticket.

      oh i know the layout I just don't think you know how quick these 500+ whp mk5 Rs are with the DSG .. things get up and OUT .. I am very surprised how well they shift that fast with all that power .. if you can contain yourself to only going 40mph in one then you have such a restraint over yourself haha

      lets see some pics of the wheel fitment on the ground!

      I think if anything it would be nice to have the most experienced track drivers go first to set the pace. Would definitely help stop the log jamming that always ends up happening.

      You guys will want to hit up moonshiner and the road to robbinsville at night. Then you can really stretch your legs.

      I'm not going to be there but good idea for any cruise...as long as no one who thinks they can keep up hurts themselves or others trying to. Sometimes, ego takes over sense at these kinds of things but most the cruises I've been on turn out really well and everyone has a lot of fun.

      We've had a few casualties. From people out driving themselves to off road guard rail adventures. Hot E brakes slipping..

      Might want to bring wheel choks.

      Parking at the lodge is an incline.

      If you guys are getting a workout it's worth considering.


      See you in a week

      Will be fun to see other boosted R's. I probably follow the experienced drivers since I am a WiTW virgin.

      Data from Tristan (Further Performance) looks good.

      Zev: Tristan and I came up with plan to have the ecu manage the hi/low setting change of your Hue-Jass fuel pump control.

      Further delivered the goods on the hardware side: Its all working

      Now its my turn to deliver on the ecu side.

      It's looking VERY good. Can't wait for Saturday. Was worried wouldn't figure out the fuel glitch, but it's sorted now. Thanks for helping tonight. You're second to none Jeff. Soooo close now.

      Do you like our little surge tank? Cute eh

      Thats a bit tough to say.....

      Like so:
      We don't 'use' the surge tank until the engine's needs are greater than the lift pump can flow.

      The bigger question: does Zev have the ka-hone-es to hold WOT long enough to drain the surge tank?

      We shall see. I think I have them, but I sense the 1 gallon tank will last long enough to leave little opportunity in most practical situations to ever run out.
