    Caersws Mini Meet and Run Yesterday

    Big thanks to Dangerous Dave, Claymore and Wobbley Dave for turning out last night for a little get together and run over some very nice welsh roads, unfortunately my phone was dead and was unable to charge it, so no pic's or vid's from me, hopeful some of the others will be able to post some up later. Great to see everyone again and it seems like ages since the last time we where all together, nice to see Wobbley's SSB tearing up the tarmac again and see Betsy's latest developments. Colin's active aero for the T-10K on the development mule (mini) was great and I hope he pops up a vid on here, of it in action yesterday evening. Great to catch up just Dangerous and see all of Poly's latest Mods, he was holidaying locally and was the reason for the impromptu meet-up, may be next time we'll turn it into a full meet and run, the only issue there is traffic as it is a popular tourist area and can be very busy with traffic, not what a bunch of T-5's need when they wish to push on a bit and enjoy the flowing corners and crest's on what is a fantastic set of roads we ran last night. Unfortunately due to my current car woes, I had to take the XC90 and do my best to keep up with them all in a heavy old beast with only 163hp and auto to, though that said I did enjoy my run through the stunning scenery, the geartronic was most useful on the climbs and really help keep momentum going. Only one downfall of the night was the end, as we were mean to be enjoying fish and chips at the end of the run, at one of our favourite chippy's, which unfortunately for us was shut.....doh! But all in all a lovely evening....thanks guys.

    There is always a level of anxiety when it comes to taking Betsy out, particularly when I have had my fair share of epic fails.

    There has sadly been nothing to share for 2.5 years, during her Shemtek holiday, but it was good to get out and more than anything I appreciated the 2nd opinions. There is still more work to do, but hopefully the snagging list will not include any further engine replacements.

    It's just the dialling in the you need to do now, you need to be able to get a on road data stream (log) going and then you will benefit for the gains that are obviously there to be had, from what we have seen. Following you Betsy looks to handle lovely and disappears into the distance rapidly, when you boot it, she just requires a bit of tweaking.....at the end of the day it's a long term project and they all do, the best thing is that it is your project and you can now tweak as you like when you like and not have to worry about daily duties.....how was the drive home, now you have few miles under your belt of getting to know Betsy again...? I do think an afr gauge would help you with sorting your current issues and the AEM item that I can fully recommend will also give you 30 minutes datalogging to boot...https://www.aemelectronics.com/produ...failsafe-gauge... I am currently working on a failsafe mechanism to work in conjunction with the gauge and other AEM equipment that will react with boost and meth issues to protect the engine should the worst happen, hopefully I'll have more on this soon

    We don't want what happened to the evo triangle to happen on that road though I guess it will come to it at some point...

    It should be working. Is there an error message?

    Scratch that, it doesn't seem to be working. I'll get onto it

    Well the picture upload works, but only in the advanced editor and not in the quick reply.

    This seems to be an issue with the forum software as other forums have the same issue. I'm still working on it.

    Right. Image uploading should now be working in the quick reply as well as the advanced editor. You can upload multiple images at once too. Only problem is the maximum file size is 5.2MB, it seems it can't handle more than that.

    Have a play, let me know of any issues.
