Beauty Kane, thanks for clearing that up. I was under the impression it was just the 4 cars local.

Yes. We have planned to record this and make it available to the masses for a nominal fee.

Couple questions for you, Kane.

I am very interested in Day 1 via Webinar. I am planning right now to be available that day for the class. Will a recording of the class be available for free to those who pay for the webinar? I am sure I am going to want to go back and review certain parts of the training.

Second question: I would love to have the remote tuning done for my car on Day 2. However, I am NA and have no real plans right now to go FI. Realistically, after the Day 1 training session I should have the capabilities to safely tune NA correct? I wouldn't want to occupy 1 of the 4 spots when there might be some others who would benefit more from a remote tune.

Thank you, I really look forward to this. Definitely sign me up for Day 1.

this looks pretty interesting, don't own an access port yet, but plan to buy one when I rebuild my engine and install my greddy turbo kit, definitely down for day 1, and day 2 if my car is ready local of course. where will the tuning take place? is there any plan to rent a dyno?

Recording will be free for those who pay for seminar.

Realistically, all the cars should be able to tune themselves. There are just a lot of people who learn more by doing and therefore they like a hands on day as well. NA has a greater margin of safety so there is more wiggle room for learners.

The local is in Seattle.

There are no plans as of yet for a dyno, since that is only worthwhile after the car is already tuned or nearly tuned.

Is this an interactive class? Meaning bring a laptop with the cobb software? Is this geared more towards NA?

You bring your @$$ up here. By the way, the last one was geared towards EITHER NA or FI. Kane walked us through the basics of planning for a turbo as well as helping us tune for either NA or for FI. It was way more of a theory class, so you know WHY you're doing what you're doing.

^^^ This.

Then during the hands on portion, you will actually tune your car while I help show you what to look for on the logs and what to adjust. The fundamentals of tuning are basically the same regardless of your engine setup.

Ride alongs will depend on how the car is running. There are a few FI 8s in the NW now so hopefully a couple show up even if it is just to hang out.

I don't know what the hang out policy would be, I mean it would be fun to go and meet up, but I can't justify the trip and $300 when I might not learn anything new. like I said I would want a 102 or 105 class and or a turbo Rensis on the dyno, shooting for power and messing with timing.

that said, this would be a great class for beginners and novice! getting a solid understanding of all the maps and how they all work with each other is essential!! also the insight that Kane will most likely provide regarding the nature of the Renisis will be indispensable for beginners and novice alike.
