Victoria DIY Day - March Meet

Post by Kev13B » Thu Feb 13, 2014 10:13 pm

The next meet will be at Ben's house, where we'll have a DIY install day. If you have anything you would like to install please let us know below.

When: Saturday March 8th
Where: Shr3das Garage - Croydon Hills (exact address will be released later)
Time: 11:30am - 12pm

What to bring: Food and drinks for a BBQ and a full tank of fuel as we'll be going for a drive through the hills afterwards.

BBQ:
Drinks - Zeking
Meat - Minthy
Bread - Driffill
Chicken - Kev13b
Salad - Kaaaching


Attending:

Shr3da
Kev13b
Driffill
Zeking
Minthy
BB85
KAAAACHING + the Boss

Maybe:

Baydogg
Trav8

Installing:
Kev13b - Grounding kit
Sayan - Water temp sensor
Shr3da - Removing more weight
Kaaching - Revi Duct



Mazdaedit Flashing + Grounding Kit

So far we'll be making up and installing a grounding kit for my car, Driffill - Andrew can also make them up for anyone else interested on the day as well, He also has MazdaEdit which can:
Set a warm up rev limit (eg, 5krpm limit until coolant is at 60c)
Block any existing Cels (Catless, airpump ect)
Lower the stock fan trigger temp which is the same as the rx8p cooling mod minus the high cost and cutting of hoses.

Driffill may be charging for the flashing service as he recently found out that 1 years support for the program costs $250...
The cost per flash will still be inexpensive, I'll up date the thread when I get more details. :thumbright:

Sounds good!

I'll cover bread/rolls, maybe even a salad (well, jasmine will probably do the salad!). I'll also have LEDs and maybe some bits :)

Scott, you didn't take the posting. I miss you like a fat kid misses cake.
Fellow Rotor fans gather now for our daily prayer.....

As I lay rubber down the street,
I pray for traction I can keep,
But if I spin and start to slide,
Please dear god protect my sweet ride.

Amen

If i took a posting down south, i wouldnt be purchasing all these parts due to the $23,000pa pay cut.... then again wouldnt be paying out for the high cost of living in Darwin.

I like cake too, meet for cake next time im down your way, or pancake parlor :D
