Sad to say I'm definitely out for this trip. 

The R is going to its new owner next Monday and I have some big bills to look forward to for the repairs to the race car. 

Have fun, take care.

As i said before it will work (obviously) but i still think you will have more fun in the ATR if the C30 isnt ready for whatever reason shouldnt be too hard to blow the cob webs off the vtec yo and get it good to go?

The accords good to go. I'll have way more track time in the atr. Be nice to go over there and at least go round in the merc though.

I get that, i did my 1 lap in the D5 and put a sticker on it happy days but that was a small part of a differant holiday if it was a ring trip id have been climbing the walls not being able to lap it like the T5, sort out a road trip with the missus and swing by the ring in the merc

I very nearly did more laps in my D5 it was only the missus complaining that stopped me and thats way less fun to drive then your merc if you bring the merc on a ring trip i can see you ending up doing quite a few laps not that its a bad thing just be sure your happy to do that before you leave ;)

Is there any chance at all of the C30 being done?

Fantastic news Chris, fingers crossed.
Get mine back Sunday, I don't know what's more exciting, getting my car back or going to the ring... both will do!

For those staying at Jackie's, so we don't have a garage full of many many jack's, axle stands and toolkits, who is bringing what?  I think we should have 3 jacks and maybe Tim doesn't have to take everything as he always travels so heavy!

I will bring the following additional items...

Dewalt impact wrench
A pair of driveshaft's
An ABS module
and as much 'screenwash', oil and brake cleaner as possible!

good idea specially as there is going to be quite a lot of wheels and tyres in the garages as it is, tbh I think everyone should bring 'screenwash' and oil as its better to have more of that then needed then to be short imo

 

3 sets is good as 3 cars can be worked on outside the garages comfortably without taking the whole car park over, as the estate boys are always banging on about how much space they have in the boot compared to the saloons I vote the 3 trolley jacks and axle stands are carried by estates :D

 

I can bring a Halfords tool kit and although it is good to try to cut down on the amount of stuff in Tims car I think he should bring a tool kit too as he knows better then any of us what is needed so is likely to have remembered that 1 important item the rest of us have forgotten so maybe only one more tool kit required?

shall I bring drive shafts too or will 1 set be enough maybe il just bring the short one as that can be used to rebuild a long one if worse comes to worse? il also have a random assortment of sensor's and bits and bobs including a spare throttle cable

also if anyone wants a proper pillow and not a large bag filled with air I would suggest bringing your own :thumbsup:

With Ashok's tools and AidAn's Halfords set that will be fine for hand tools and I'll bring the other hand told I don't want to use. 

If Aidan and Ashok bring their impact guns and Aidan brings his spare driveshafts that would help. I'll bring a large alloy jack, two other jacks would be good. I'll bring axel stands/Pegs. 

 

Aidan if you can drop the spare 80 ltr of methanol round to Irf's then if we run short he can bring it over on Thursday.
