The Mustang dyno at Curry's is down due to a software problem. We are bumping the date to Sat. Dec. 15th. just incase the software update doesn't come back in time.<P><P>

Ha! I might be able to make it for the GTG. I doubt I want to do any more dyno, though. I'm scare to see I go through another tranny like that.

I think one of the guys who works there (owner?) races Porsches, and there always seemed to be some nice cars parked out front (Audi, BMW, Porsche, etc). You should see if they do anything with Volvos.<P>

Alright, Michael and I talked about this the other day. I was thinking about going to the Curry's auto first on Saturday morning. I think I'll probbably get there around 11:30 or so unless I'll actually be picking up my C70 the same day. <BR>Maybe after hanging around there for an hour to half hour, I might head over to Rob's place, if he's going to be there that day.<BR>So..we are looking the whole GTG will last till 2 or 3 depends on the turn out. <BR>Just a thought, let me know if anyone else will be coming.<BR>

Alright I hope everyone will be reading this.<P>I finally got my car back...everything is fine except the flame throwing exhaust. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> I'll try to get the car detailed before the GTG.<P>I just want to know who else from the MD area will be going to Curry's or will just head over to Rob's shop. I think I will have another new Swedespeed member from the Rockville to join Matt and I on the way down to Curry's. I just want to get a confirmation from everyone this time.<P>We are planning to meet up in the wintergreen plaza on Rockville pike first, then drive down to Curry's then to Rob's. Please let me know if you are coming to either one. I think this will be the last chance to do a GTG before the winter hits. I know it seems like we won't have a white x'mas, but still...<P>Thanks~~<P>

I look forward to meeting you guys. I think the weather is suppose to be nice. I'll have my dark green VW pickup. I don't think I could convince my wife to drive the S70 over and hang out with us.<P>Bring a camcorder if you want to film and hear how your car sounds at 6k rpm. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P><p>[This message has been edited by 83caddy16v (edited 12-13-2001).]

Ok I'll finally post <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> I'll be meeting up with Kai and the others, and driving down. Then we can head up to my shop...I think I'll install the diesel rear springs that aren't cut for the Rallycross, and jack the front end of the coilovers up <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> You all can check it out. Sounds good.<P>Rob

Okay, not even a response from George, I guess he will be coming with us then. We'll still have four people from MD to drive down.<P>I do want to see the new coilovers that Rob has. After hearing this term all the time, I've actually never seen on being installed. Should be very similar to installing struts, right?

I'll definitely bring the 240 booklets. Sorry it's taken so long.<P>I scanned above. Does someone have a street address or directions. Didn't see them. I need to be up in Aberdeen, MD to shoot a GTI at NGP at 10AM. So I'll be there around 12:00 or so if all goes well.

Hey Kai, is that your cell phone. If you guys are going to Rob's afterward, maybe I'll just come by there depending on how late I am (expecting to hit DC around noon). Post directions or addresses (all I need) to Curry's and Robs if you get the chance.
