I'll try my best to be there, however we're moving house middle of next week so i'll have to come up with a good excuse to sneak off for a few hours!

Is there going to be any chances to run our cars, or is this a chat and watch GTG?

Hopefully see you there.... :bannana:

Only that people I've spoken to about RR'ing the 500E have sorta said 'Errr, no...no way!'

i'm not expecting much to be honest! the turbo has done wonders for me in drivability, the car is more enjoyable at all speeds (once boost is there) and I'm not afraid of being 1st at the lights in the morning or when there is a BMW behind me :p

Just the look on peoples faces when they hear a dump valve from a merc so so cool, and I know I am probably the only guy in london with a turbo 180.

There are so many C180's on the road now especially the younger guys who have put on alloys that drastically changes the look, there is even a C280 in my area with MAE wheels!!!! - this guy done a burnout after I had given him way to come out his drive, when I see him now he will be in for a suprise.


The graph would be interesting but only I will know what joy my car is in its present form, put it this way I didn't want to sell my car because of the money I had lost in it and I needed more power with the looks of the car, the Turbo was the only logical descision.

What I am trying to say is that even though I have a turbo, it's still not rapid, the only cure for that would be displacement - C200 Crankshafts Mark?

Power engineering should be able to handle a 500E :)

They deal with some very high performance vehicles on a regular basis.
