I must say the roads in that area are amazing! I spent three days riding motorcyles around Helen, and can't wait to get back there. I will definitely keep this event in mind.

Southern Worthersee is getting big! APR has been added as a title sponsor, as well as coverage by Performance VW and Deutsche Motorsport Magazines. APR plans to bring its' roadshow and we have people coming from as far west as Colorado! Our banner will be on VWVortex in Feb, with a link to our official website. Check this link for some pics of Helen for a little inspiration!: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3025247

how about RocketChip, will Jeff be there?
Do you know the contact for Rocketchip? I had sent an invite to Upsolute so I will send one if I get the contact, thanks.

you may want to get a list started of folks that want to get chipped. there has to be around 10 or 15 to make it worth jeff's effort to go to a gtg. he was at the old navy gtg last fall and did about 20 cars. jeff is a great guy, just really really busy.

Anyone want to add there name to a chip list?. If you are not chipped this is the best first mod for the TDI.

Bumping this up for those interested. Better get your reservations in. This is really shaping up. Three clubs already starting lists of who is going. Make plans now to show those TDI badges. I would really like to see some cars that are highly modified show up as well as stock. TDI (efficiency+power=TRUE performance) :cool:

Mod List Request for event vendors

OK, so I don't know if this needs to be a new thread but lets start a list of desired mods for a tech session:
user .........mod
Richard55 stage three


I don't know about the major mechanical stuff like timing belt and intake cleaning to me seems like too much for a GTG.

Rocket Chip and Nozzles

I'm in for RocketChip and Nozzles. I got a thread running trying to decide the best combo for my 96 B4 Passat.

DannyRay.. any chance to get pre-paid for services (programming and nozzles)? We could start a list like the TX GTG guys and get a list going?

I am not sure the best way to do this. We could start a list on our web (www.h2otuning.com) since we are sponsering the show, but I don't think we would want to get into any pre-payment. I would just pay there If I were getting chipped. If you know of a better way to get alist going I am all ears. It sounds like we have enough interest for a tuner to show.

If you guys do get this person to come, you can let him know, space for the event is only $100.00 a day, and since it's on private property, it's my understanding from the people at the city (Helen) he would not have to pay local taxes! Let me know if he's in and I'll make sure.

Want to be chipped at GTG?

OK, So by my count we have ~8 wanting to get chipped at the GTG. Do you guys care which vendor (Rocketchip/Upsolute) or will you only accept Rocketchip? I will pass along your answer to the vendor and try to twist them into coming.

Based on my reading, and a discussion w/ Jeff, I plan to do the RC1+. If he can make it - great, I'll get it there. If not, I'll end up shipping my ECU. I'm not knocking any of the other tuners out there... I just think the RC is the right choice for me.
