DOORSLAMMERS 2019 – WHAT A WEEKEND!

Doorslammers 2019 saw hundred and ninety-nine cars entered, a record number for the event. The front wheel drive entry list was closed early due to the vast amount of drag cars that had been entered. With cars and drivers coming from all over Europe, this weekend was going to be EPIC!

Doorslammers 2019 was a brilliant opportunity to see some of the mixture of ADE Tuning mapped drag cars in one place. Most compete within the car group of manufacturer i.e. Carl with Rusty Bullet (Vauxhall Astra GTE) and Ian with that Crazy Corsa where recently down at the Performance Vauxhall Show. The team headed down very early on the Friday morning ready for FWD qualifying and also RWYB (run what you’ve brung) so they could get use to the track and check their cars.

TEAM ADE TUNING

Rob Garvey – VW Golf VR6T
Paul Hughes – Hillman Imp with Toyota MR2 turbo
Paul Jordan – VW Polo 1.8 20vt
Ian Milne – Vauxhall Corsa C20LET
Carl Hartley – Vauxhall Astra GTE C20LET
Mike Whittaker – VW MK1 Caddy VR6T

SO HOW DID THE DRIVERS DO?

With the cars entered across four of the seven categories everyone was well prepared or a least they thought so 😉

Carl broke Rusty Bullets clutch on the Friday. BUT managed to get a clutch sent down to Santa Pod for replacement on the Saturday. Then broke the replacement!

Sadly Ian broke an inner cv boot and couldn’t get a replacement. Jordy set off too early on his race which set off the red light which was an automatic elimination. Rob was doing well until he was paired against a Mustang and changed from 3rd to 1st 🤔 Mike in the Caddy got through to semi finals and got knocked out coming 4th 🏆🏁

Everyone had a cracking weekend even though the weather gods didn’t play ball on the Saturday.

And will we be back for Doorslammers 2020??

HELL YEAH!!

M3 EATING BMW? 435D REMAP WILL GUARANTEE IT!

We could have just done a 435d remap. But this stunning BMW 435d was booked into the workshop for our dpf solutions package and front mount intercooler fitting.

The diesel-powered 4-series is packing 313bhp and with all-wheel drive. The 435d is offered exclusively with BMW xDrive and with an auto box, making it a delight to drive. So how would a 435d remap change the car?

This car already pulls 313bhp in standard form so when the owner booked the car in for a fmic fitting along with an ADE Tuning dpf solution package deal, we knew good gains would be made.

The ADE Tuning package deal involves the dpf delete with dpf software, egr valve blank with egr software along with a custom remap. It is recommend for track and motor sport use. The dpf is a filter, its job is to capture and store soot particles produced during the engine combustion process from entering the atmosphere, then every so many miles the engine will enter a regeneration cycle which is supposed to clean the filter by burning the soot and turning it into ash. Inevitably every dpf is going to clog up at some point. This BMW 435d had issues with the dpf.

We can offer a 435d remap on its own but you won’t see these figures…

Now pulling 417bhp with 555ft/lb torque, this BMW 435d is an M3 eater 🤪😁
