Charity cruise for modified/performance cars


Recommended Posts

It would be a huge help if ya'll could spread the word around other forums and such, i don't really have the time and also don't have internet access at home (i'm at my partners place 20km from home at the mo, and i can't get here too often).

Can copy & paste the below to make it easier. You may just have to make little updates every now and then as things get confirmed/changed etc.

Might have to either remove the [ size ] coding or modify it to suit the forum you're posting it in, as some forums it may turn out really big or really small. ;)

Well since its all official now;
Facebook group

- Sunday, 21st November 2010
- Meet up at (location TBC) from 7:30am. Please try to be there by 10:45am at the latest.
- Depart for cruise at 11:30am after a possible briefing.
- Arrive back before 1am for (TBC) a BBQ lunch (which may not be free)

Aim of the event is primarily to raise as much money for the Otago Community Hospice as possible. http://www.otagohospice.co.nz/funding.html

By charging each driver a minimum 'donation' of $5 (higher amounts are encouraged if you can afford it) to enter the cruise, and also let participants have the option to charge passengers/members of the public to have a ride in their car for the duration. The passengers themselves will donate the money, so to prevent unhonest drivers pocketing half or more of the passengers fare (can never be too safe!).

[size=150]WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP[/size]
- Come along in your car!
- And also please try to spread the word in as many ways possible, this is what is gonna make or break a big turnout. Word of mouth is a powerful tool and we can easily get a lot of cars if a lot of people know about it!

[size=150]IS MY CAR ELIGABLE[/size]
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.

- Rang the ODT, they getting the chief reporter to take a look an the idea for a possible article.

- Rang the DCC, they musing over the idea of us using the Tahuna Park showgrounds for the event/parkup.

- Rang the Hospice, they saw the article in the Herald, are fine with the cruise name (Otago Community Hospice Charity Cruise) and even volunteered to e-mail me their new logo to use on the yet-to-be-made flyer. They also keen to have someone do a speech on the day if we end up doing speeches.

Also rang a couple of other people and hoping to talk to Greg Inch one day to see how a big event like this is run.

Need now to find out a cheap way of printing off a couple hundred flyers in time for the Autospectacular in July. Anyone got any contacts?

It will surely cost you a lot of money in printing fliers in different colors. But if you are thinking of being thrifty enough, a flier in black and white will save you from large expenses. Think it over first before making your final decision.

      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
