Got to put in some vacation dates at work. No mention of Syncrofest 7 here, but a Google search says it's May 4-7. Is this right? I just might be able to trust my firetruck Syncro enough to drive down there.

Contact Syncrozilla, Tristar Eric or vwlovr as they are some of the main guys that help put it on.

I contemplated going in my 2WD tintop just to cruise around on the trails to meet other folks and ogle the cool syncros. I have a Jeep that dominates the entire park but I wanna take my Vanagon!

There's actually 3 of us with tintops that want to go...would we be run off or is it a come one come all type of event?

There will probably be more 2WD vans than Syncros. All are welcome!
And don't be too confidant about the "dominance" of your Jeep. A capable driver behind the wheel of a Syncro can give a Jeep a run for its money in many situations. Wink

Would us "2WD" guys have to brandish a "1WD" sticker?

(although I'll have a Peloquin then, so "1.5WD?")

Hell no. In 2011, a $200 2WD went through the boulder garden. Shocked

Here's photo proof:

Very Happy

One of these years I'll quit going to Laguna Seca and return to Syncrofest. (Why not both? I can only handle one trip to CA per year. Wink )

Thanks Kam for awakening my dumbass attack... I thought this event was the one in Moab, DOH!

You might consider the 50th anniversary of the Can-Am at Road America, the finest track in North America... or Petit Le Mans!

Sorry, carry on on topic, back to y'all...

You're welcome. I wish I could be there to help you renege on that promise, but I'm going to Synchro Solstice instead. Bummed to be missing SF since it was a blast last year, but I'm sure Moab will be fun as well.

Where do we sign up for this? Googled the website and they're asking for a user name and a password. Huh?

Most likely the site is being updated and will be available when it's done.

I went to SyncroFest last year for the first time in my 1.6na Westy.

This year, I'll be attending with my fairly recent mTDI conversion.

Hope to meet a lot of people that I chatted with during the conversion there!
