      UM technically isn't allowed at SoWo. With that being said, get at me if you see me there as I have some information that will be relevant to your interests. lol.

      C2 has kinda died in them producing stuff for the R32 since I think Jeff left, but they still offer tunes for the R32 and they also have turbo kits and software for the Rabbit. C2 has had a booth at SoWo for a few years now so they are pretty in with the SoWo peeps

      gotcha

      strangely C2 wouldnt respond to my emails asking them to show at WiTW12, I assume that was because they were no longer the only sponsor allowed.



      go figure

      danka!

      I wish I could make this trip

      have fun, and dont give SKNK any polish booze.

      He was at WiTW. Cool guy. At one point, him and jesse switched name tags. I think he might've gotten tired of guys walking up to him and asking him about tunes for their cars.

      Not allowing UM is just another reason to skip the car show as far as I'm concerned......

      Dictating who can and can't come to a car show is over he line for me.

      I briefly considered driving up to check it out and meet 1610, that gem, plus my impending surgery,
      combined to kill that idea.

      Just because UM is not allowed doesnt mean the show is not a good one. Im sure things will settle out in the future and everyone can be one big happy family at an event

      A certain company that does automotive lighting that also happens to be a dealer for United Motorsports will be flashing cars @ SoWo.

      PM me for details.

      It's 100% legit. PerformanceLEDs was going to sponsor SoWo but decided against it after being banned from promoting, speaking of, or selling United Motorsport products.

      Way to have a great big diverse vendor center for the participants. 24 C2 Motorsports booths spread over 50 acres? Next year it will be called C2WO.
