- And also please try to spread the word in as many ways possible, this is what is gonna make or break a big turnout.

- Volunteer on the day!


This is a hard one really. Basically, if its an exotic car (Lotus, Ferrari, Mercedes etc), muscle car (Mustang, GTO, Falcon, Camraro etc), classic car (Jaguar, Mini, Austin etc), hot rod or modified car then you'll be right. That includes FPV and HSV vehicles, all Mercs, Jags, higher specced BMW's and so on. If you've got a Suzuki Swift, Toyota Camry, Hyundai Accent etc with aftermarket wheels or anything else not factory/rare then its eligable too. And of course any Japanese sports car (Skylines, RX-7's, GTO's etc) is allowed, some even if they aren't modded.

Sweet as. :) I'm donating $20 too. 8)

We will be sorting a way for people to pay money but not come along, one of the committee members is talking to his contacts at Westpac. A lady from work said she and her husband can't bring their twin turbo 300ZX along, but will donate money. And my uncles sister and a few others are doing the same.

So yeah, spread the word all! :)

Need to raise another $400 or so because DCC have now decided we need a TMP (Traffic Management Plan), which costs $150 for the volunteers (going through Event Traffic Management Otago Ltd) and $80-$??? for the compulsary two ads in the ODT.

AND WE NEED VOLUNTEERS ON THE DAY!!! This could turn into a complete shambles without enough people helping out!

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
      Cheers Shaun
