January/September 2005

Ok guys and girls.. I know it’s been a long time coming..

But here goes..
(be warned it's long.. just look at the scroll bar on the side )


Firstly www.CalaisTurbo.com.au hit a milestone of 10,000 registered users! Along with 53,600+ Threads and 660,300+ Posts. Now that’s allot considering we are a single brand/model specific car forum, also considering we do not do any outside advertising (apart from a few stickers on cars).

Advertisers
CalaisTurbo.com.au went through a few changes to allow multiple advertisers of the same business type and selling the same product to come aboard at the same time. Now I think it has so far worked to everyone’s benefit as I don’t think I have seen such good prices for new quality items ever… ( I used to pay these prices for o.k. second hand units!!).

A few new advertisers that have jumped aboard are:

JSPEC - Automotive Products
6boost.com - Turbo manifolds and packages.
gktech – Alarms, Recaro seats and intercoolers
hsvtrev – Offering us all NITRO fueled Remote Control Buggys
CPC custom plenums – Custom Plenum Creations
www.CoolingPerformance.com - Water/ Methanol Injection kits
Drift Shop Australia - www.driftshop.com.au Again a full range of automotive parts.
Jdcustom – JD Custom plenums
VIGIL CAR INSURANCE – Looking After Legends (thread can be found in the VLT general section, sticky at the top)


There ads offering everyone great prices can found in our advertisers section HERE


I would also like to thank the following sponsors that have continued to support us:

Bresciani Racing – www.BRESCIANIRACING.com.au
RACESPEC – A range of automotive parts.
Jet-6 – Electrical Services and minispool sales.
www.tuffcarparts.com – Full range of Automotive parts.

Thanks.. Now everyone help support the business that support us!



A few things that have happened and are going to be happening.

Vic
-Bresciani Dyno day was held to help open their new workshop. And what can I say, it was fantastic. John and Danny did a great job to keep us all entertained, and there were so many VL’s it was amazing. Pictures can be found scattered throughout the Vic section and a vid or 2 are available on the fullboost website.. Hopefully they have another one soon. (Special thanks to Owen "VLRB20DET" for helping to organise it.)
-Another CalaisTurbo.com.au Dyno day was held at the Rajab workshop and was organized by our very own [HAMOUD], who did an excellent job making sure the day went of without a hitch.. apart from not getting a hot dog I say it went excellent, the quality of peoples cars was great, and some big name melbourne cars showed up to put on a show. Pics of the event can be found in the Vic section and Vids (provided by Wog-VLT and cleanvlt) can be found in our d/l section.

NSW
-Calais Estate Cruise 3 is being setup for Sunday October 16’th. From what I understand it’s “the” event in NSW and looks to be drawing quite a crowd. Click here to view more details

WA
-Preparations for Motorvation are again underway. Entry is stricter this year so you need to get in early and make sure your ride is at it’s nicest. Another CalaisTurbo.com.au display is being organized, so if you want to enter your car head over here to check it out.

SA
Blink with the help of VLCAL-6 and Spirit77 are organising the Barossa Cruise to be held on Sunday November 20. Looks like a few people are going to turn up. So if your in SA and want to spend a day cruising show your support.

*If you have something to add let me know and I will. If you have an upcoming event let me know and I will add it to this or the next newsletter.

CalaisTurbo.com.au Stickers.
Stickers are now available in white, yellow, blue, red and asteroid/metallic silver. Head over to this thread if you would like details on ordering them and pictures of what they look like.

Free Members Raffle
We have run 2 members only free raffles to give back something to you guys and girls as a thanks for supporting us. Firstly we gave away a very limited edition hat which was won by “Slayar”, this first raffle was used as a test run for the next one.
The second raffle which with the generous help of Marc and James at JSPEC We raffled a new 044 Bosch Fuel Pump valued at over $300 AUS.. and.... a custom made surge tank (to the winners specifications) All worth over $400!. This was won by “coastvl”, I’m sure it will go to good use on the wagon

Another raffle is being planned so stay tuned guy’s and keep an eye out in the members lounge for your chance to enter free.
