Joe - any chance you guys can have a quick look at mine on a ramp Saturday? Mentioned Friday when the puncture was getting sorted about the clicking/popping sound I am getting from the front when braking/accelerating.

 

If not and your all busy - ill book it in for another day :)

I am sure! Last time I had this it was a loose camber bolt and on my old car it was a drop link causing the sound. If there was space on Sat it would be good to get an eye cast over it :)

Yeah no problem Iian. I'm sure we'll have more than enough time to check it out!

On a side note, if anyone has a camera they'd like to bring along for some pictures for the forums I'd be very grateful!

Fingers crossed for some good weather!

Joe

From what I've heard things didn't go to plan and a meet didn't really happen with people just coming for their booked slot and then shooting off afterwards. It's a shame after all the hard work Joe put in to organising it :(

 

Did anyone get any photos though?

To be fair rich there was no real photo opportunities and the ones that were there would not have done WiM any justice.

 

Me and macca turned up around 10.30 and it there were 3 mk3's and a couple of mk2's but it looks like for one reason or another people didn't bother coming along ahead of their slots which was the aim i guess. The indicated attendance versus actual was quite different so looks like people had changes of plan for one reason or another.

 

I think it dropped off when all the mk3 guys shot off as i think they wanted to eat which is shame. I took macca and Joe out for a blast in mine and we were chatting around the engine, looking underneath the cars etc. In the end were were there for a couple of hours  when we admitted defeat and retired back to maccas house to try and sort a water leak on his roof.

 

Its difficult to tell what the turnout will be on these days. If another one ever happens (and i wouldnt blame the guys for being hesitiant after this) i could offer some constructive feedback to try and make the best one the meet everyones hoping for :)

Maybe having time slots was the problem and having a raffle ticket like before was better. You got there early, get a ticket and hope you get picked - most of the time nearly everyone got on the ramp.

 

I was expecting a turnout like this seeing that alot of MX5 owners use WIM - http://www.wheels-in...?showtopic=4492 I miss those old meets of 30+ motors.
