Default Rocketchipping?

I hope, I am sure Jeff will be at the fest to do rocketchipping...I want to be sure I am on the list so I thought I'd start it. Too early? Maybe, but never-the-less, let the excitement brew!

Rocketchip list
1.) vw4life (BHW RC1 or RC1.5)
2.)
3.)
4.)
5.)

LOL.......He doesn't work that way..........A list is put out when he arrives and business is first come, first serve!
You don't even know if he will be there......since it is at least 2800 miles one way for him to drive out there.

Like I said, making a few assumptions, but I'd hazard a bet that Jeff would go to TDIfest no matter where it is... I hope...

Well he did a portland san fran blitz either this summer or last (I forget).

I can only imagine there is quite a good demand and he would be busy all weekend.

I think it's much too early to get a concrete commitment from Jeff at this time for the Fest. I admire your enthusiasm to get Rocketchip there at the fest. Believe me, he won't be forgotten about when it comes to the fest vendor list. Give it a few months though

vw4life,

As a suggestion, why don't you just send your ECU to Jeff for chipping. Believe me, the inconvenience of not having your ECU for a few days will be far easier than hanging out near Jeff for half a day waiting for you name to get to the top of the list while so many other things are going on.

Thanks, I'm a patient person. I will wait. We have one car which kinda makes it difficult to go w/o for at least a week (which it would be with shipping in and out of Canada)
