MINI MEET: THURSDAY 24TH 10 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 284
Is anyone up for a mini meet tomorrow night?

I was thinking of meeting in citywest carpark for a drive up the blessington road to sally's gap for a few photo's, meant to be cloudy(ish) but would in theory get some great shots of the mountains with the sunset in the background.

Meeting Point: Citywest Shopping Centre Car Park
Time: 7.45pm to 8pm
Leave: 8:15 Sharp

Now you're just showing off your superior intellect. Nobody else would have been able to come up with that, not even Jedward. Oh....wait...well, fair play anyway, I think you're smart.

PS, sounds cool BTW, kinda reminds me of FraggleRock....heheheeee Doozers....heheheheheeeee

Feck it, ill give you a KC for your genius.

PS: Any less than 3 cars does not qualify for mini-meet status. This will be a micro-meet. No need for police escort.

Forget your micro meet, I am now going along, and will meet you both in Naas as its easier if nobody else is turning up.

Oh I am all excited, I love the wicklow gap, they should have it in GT3 AFAIAC.

Nice one Ray! Who doesnt love a good 3 way?

3 cars or less is a micro meet. 4 to 9 is a mini meet. 10 plus is a full on maxi meet. These are the new definitions as set by the SWA.

Rayzer, you know Daves house, so we meet there at 7.45 and then head off?

I just tried to call Dave, rang out, but im sure he will be fine with that, as its what we were doing anyway. See you then buddy, and I admire your negotiation skills. They clearly must be at hostage/terrorist level to have been able to get out of the kid sitting. You are a man!

Great, i'll charge up the camera, there's a few places we could get some photo's, in theory it should be quiet enough around there?

Sallys Gap, do you know on the way theres a small bridge with woods to the left an right with a stream leading down to a river, there would be good on the bend, then anywhere in the sallys gap, and also right up the steep hill overlooking glendalough, my imagination may be over describing it

Cheers lads great night! Ray, fair play, you nearly got home before yourself. Check a mirror to make sure there isnt a half second delay/blur of your reflection. You may have upset the balance in the fabric of time. Easy there fella!

We really only saw him when we pulled in to take photos

I dont think it matters too much if you have an N/A or a turbo when you can really drive. You can have all the power in the world and not be able to use it. It may be hard to keep up on the straights, but on the bendys, experience, skill, commitment, bravey/madness all plays a major role.

Ray can drive.

Although, when its tubby time, ill be praying for him,

Thanks for the comments but its not me, its the car, particulary the suspension / geo setup.

Turbo time will be interesting, think 3 months of inductino should see me safe or selling spare parts.

I noticed how hard you went into bends without touching the brakes. The seemed very stable and no sway at all. I was impressed. I found that I had to dab a little brake here and there where you didnt, and felt a little twitchy. I deffo want my alignment done and still dont know what suspension is in there at all!

And dont be so modest, its never all the car. The driver IS a HUGE part of the formula.
Take Top Gear for example, the reasonable priced car that all the celebs drive. SAME car, SAME track, different drivers, different results.

KACHOW!
