Having turned up to see the success of the pistonheads meet, I just wondered if anyone would be up for a FCCUK tunnel run in London.

What would work best for people? Early mornings, Late nights, Weekends?

All idea's welcome.

Kevin - That's a bit of a trek... well maybe not at warp factor 6 which you seem to like to engage.

S1mma - From memory they all met up outside of the Tea Hut on chelsea bridge at midnight. Then from there drove through all the tunnels in London with a few tea/coffee stops and ended up at the Dome.

We could do something similar as the coop does sound really nice full chat going through the Aldwych tunnel.

Aldwych Tunnel now thats a trek!!!!! Sounds like fun anyway - Im sure there is some footage around of a Hatfield tunnel meet at somepoint with quite a few coups there.

BTW Ken are you going for that 3" downpipe?

Here's 4Cars cover on it.

http://www.channel4.com/4car/feature/features-2006/tunnel-run/

Kevin - i am tempted by the downpipe.. but it's a £1,200 downpipe. As i would be buying the pipe, a GT28r, straight induction, ram air filter, decat and the remap at PTS. So i'm going to have to take a long think about it.

well - if i'm going to get a downpipe, i'd rather have the one with the fitting for the 5 stud GT28R so that's incompatible with my std tubby.

What's worse is i have Rog putting silly ideas in my mind like.. 'Why not get the 0.64 RS?'

Nigel and I were at the pistonheads tunnel run last month, was a good day, although getting lost was a bit too easy, damn London traffic lights.

and take it from me, a Coupe doesn't sound anywhere near as good in a tunnel as a Lambo with race pipes, or a backfiring Cerbera
