I don't scare easily. A PD beat me last year, lets see what the VE can do!

I'm definitely in for some time on the heartbreaking dyno with the B5.5

I voted for one series of runs, but might do two.

Dangit, competition just got stiff.

Maybe I'll bring some drugs.

I might be but as a green-horn and with only 2200 miles on my 2012 Golf TDI, not sure what I will gain from participating. Really hoping to learn more while I am there but until then I am buried up to my *ss with just work and life ;-) as I am sure everyone else...

In the early stages of ownership but hope to continue to squeeze miles out of every drop of fuel.

Anyone who is interested, please vote in the poll thread! I need to let the Dyno guys know on Monday so they can make plans!

Also, get your hotel reservations in before the 8th.

This looks like it's going to happen. We're dotting the I's and crossing the T's to make sure we're covered in terms of liability wavers, insurance, funding, etc.

More updates tomorrow... keep your eyes peeled!

FYI - If everything checks out and the dyno is a GO, you will need to sign up for it on our registration site. More details to follow.

Well my high hopes have been smashed. The dyno won't be happening this year because the communication channels seem to be a one-way street.

My apologies to anyone who was really looking forward to this!
