you doing this yrs event?
Yes I've signed up. There are always enough DB7's there so I might be in the old Pagoda Merc this year.

To any of you other guys who've not yet heard about or seen this event at Derby Motor Services, (Rick's Place), please check out this link: http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&a...

Was a worthwhile event last year, I think others would recommend it too.

To josh bear and Guycord: It seams we three have the exact same cars (09 Tungsten coupe) with those same wheels. Have either of you found a good way to reduce the amount of brake dust that sticks to these wheels? I really like the way they look but they are a pain to clean and SOOOOO much brake dust sticks to them.
Hi,

My MY2010 V8V in Casino (I'll have photos next week) does not have the same wheels as Josh Bears (however, I had to admire and comment on his exceptionally good photograph's of his beautiful V8V).

I have the new 10-spoke diamond-turned wheels with a semi-graphite finish. These I have found are; a) considerably easier to clean than the 7-spoke painted type I once had - they seem to self-clean alot better. The painted graphite finish on the side of the spoke is naturally very slippy; b) I do now and again slap on Poorboys Wheel Sealent for even more added slipperyness and c) bought myself a low profile wheel trolley jack so I can actually pop the wheels off, clean and seal everything properly across the who rim.

Pics were taken last summer while I was working up in Scotland.

The road is the A702 just off the A76 north of a small place called Thornhill.
If you're ever up that way give it a go, part of it had just been resurfaced just
like a smooth race track.

514HP from a DB9.

That's going some.
yup..!!
What have you had done to it?
nothing.....believe it or not.....just drive it whenever i can , which is most days....the 514 bhp came from the dyno at Paramount , they wanted me to up grade the chip to 500....so put it on the dyno to check it...and hey presto...514...thanks for coming..!!!!!!
I have spoken to Aston about it...they say because the car is serviced and driven regularly that may account for the increase , they told me of a db9 with 530 bhp dyno tested that also had no modifications at all......
So moral of this...DRIVE EM..!!!laughlaughlaughlaughsmokin

Well, then, I guess Josh and I have the TWO best looking V8Vs. smile

Of course, Josh's seems to have the steering wheel on the wrong side. Must be defective.

PS: Casino was really nice too, there were just none around when I was looking.
