Tell us a little about you. What cars you are interested, where you are from and why you are interested in learning to tune.
Just a quick introduction now i'm all signed up for various courses here with HPA!
I'm Adam, I've owned a fair selection of different cars over my time but my current toy is a 1995 Mazda Eunos Roadster 1.8, imported from Japan.
It's now far from standard, being fully caged, supercharged and running an Adaptronic E420C ECU. I've always spun my own spanners and have just put the engine back in having pulled it to replace all seals and clutch in preparation for some track days and another Nurburgring trip, it got me to thinking there's no reason why I couldn't gain the knowledge required to safely get involved with the laptop too. With knowledge comes confidence to have a go and gain experience and i'm already glad i've signed up.
Looking forward to taking the remaining courses and to get involved.
The only negative? I already want my own dyno.
Welcome along Adam!
Sounds like quite the Roadster. Pics! I've just joined the club with a wee 1.6.
Yes things snowball quickly when it comes to anything automotive as you know haha, but I'm sure you'll have fun with your tuning with or without a dyno ;)
Also lucky that you get to fang around the ring mate!
It has still got a way to go before I’ll be totally happy with it but it’s getting there slowly.
Any plans for yours? This is the 4th I’ve owned now and definitely the most modified but even as a standard car they’re a whole lot of fun to pedal!
I am definitely having fun, snowballing and slippery slopes aside, haha.
The Nurburgring has been an annual trip for the last ten years, I’m yet to take the Roadster around though as it wasn’t quite ready this time around so I was in a friends E39 M5 and the last time I was riding my BMW F800GS! The place is heaven!
Here are a couple of snaps of my toy car...
