    Does RMW/Jan ever set up a tent at The Dragon? I'd like a Jan tune.
    Is there a list of vendors that will be there this year?

    Jan has a tent, chair, table and laptop on Vendor's Row and is usually found across from Chad or Eric Helix. You will never be sorry you got a Jan tune. He tweaks each one to fit exactly what your car has, down to the grade of gas you use.

    You should be getting Barry's [snooter] newsletter by email. He usually updates all the vendors as the time approaches.

    Excellent! I've read up on bad things that come about from a manic tune and from what I've heard Jan tunes are the best tunes. I'd like to get the most out of my engine without decreasing reliability.

    Jan's tunes are THE best. He really knows his stuff, as evidenced by Revolution Motor Works and his "go fast and furious" products there, too.

    Yes, Jan will have a tent at the Dragon and yes he will be at the Dragon this year.

    Jan / RMW and Helix both do not register as vendors until the Dragon gets closer.

    While I'm sorry to hear that, it's time to get an '06 R53! I KNOW he tunes them! :cornut:

    The only useful MINI with a turbo worth tuning is an R53 with a "built motor" with an aftermarket turbo.

    The 2nd gens ( both motors) can not handle a better turbo with a better custom tune. That's why the Manic tuned car all fail or blow up in the end.

    Speaking of aftermarket parts, someone really needs to buy my brand new/unused Colin Greene adjustable camber/caster plates! The perfect modification for someone before your Dragon trip.

    Chad yes, but no Way. :D Does a Cooper with a CVT really need a tune? You sure don't want to lessen the life of that solid gold transmission.
