Yeah I've heard the same thing about the dct slippages but I read that it seems to happen at 450+ hp and since I don't plan on upgrading my turbos I would be fine I think. (With meth and E85 I'd probably pull in about 420 probably the next thing on my to do list). So having a silky smooth dct would be nice but I just have to live with my steptronic until the M4 comes out in 3 years
It varies, I have an upgraded clutch on my DCT and with FBP+Pro Tune im sitting around numbers most the the meth/race gas guy has and my DCt is holding storng 45k miles soo far.

A weekday meet would pretty much guarantee no...

Jonathan, Alex, Todd, Ben, Holden, Doc, Tim, Grant, Clayton, Me, Brandon, Stu, MJ, MJ's gf with swapped E36 and E34 life (E34 M5) plus the most likely chance random people that post from the around the area (Geaukart, Russian325is, driftindaddy, thrule01 etc. etc.) won't be able to make it in for the night

That's about 2 M5's, 4 M3's and a few thousand HP that'd be missing

The only way a weekday would work is if there is a major holiday that a majority of folks get off. This excludes holidays that involve traditional gift giving or eating (don't count Christmas or Thanksgiving)

You're best bet might be early December (but holiday parties are going to be competition) to do something this year. You might want to wait until after LSU's bowl game (early January). The only issue there will be cold weather but if the meet is at a restaurant you should be good.

If yall dont want a meet just say so. Everyones coming up with excuses.....When they do MFest people make it work. Even when it was scheduled on Easter Sunday there were hundreds of us there. Chris picked a date and the ones who could make it showed up, the ones who couldnt didnt go. Simple as that.

Nobody is making excuses. Nobody is suggesting anything that is unreasonable.

If it happens on a weekday, few will go. This has been repeated many times now.

I think since Michael is hosting it, he should decide what date works best since his company is doing this for us. Those who can make it, go. Those who can't dont. Anyone object?

We all understand what you are saying sara, and we all appreciate the hospitality Michael is showing, but I'm sure you, and michael would like to have a meet with more then 3-4 cars. We understand everyone will not be able to make it, but it would be feasible to do it on a date that the MAJORITY would be able to make it.

So something to keep in mind:
1) christmas/new years - most people will be off work/school, but possibly be out of town or having family time
2) day when there is not an LSU or Saints game
3) when is sara leaving
4) a lot of people are just not able to drop everything for a car meet

So my suggestions are:
1) Michael look at some future dates that BWW would be able to accommodate all of us the easiest
2) everyone look at there schedule and post up 1 or 2 days that would be good for you
3) after all that we could pick a day based on the best overall...

what ya'll say??

I would like to see most of you before I go so if we can have one last meet great. If not thats ok too.
December 8th -9th works for me. or the 15th-16th. After that I cant attend but dont let that hold you back.
