marques is a car show for everyone irrespective of quality, taste ect ect.
you could bring it along in primer half assembled and it'd be ok.

I'm about a 60-70% chance at this stage.

For those who are more than likely to attend, someone should work out the approximate number of attendees (AusZcar) and contact the organisers...

I'm up for the event, though leaving from the airport area on the Friday arvo and catching up with mates before the show. Can do a cruise back into town on the Sunday arvo...

its too late for the wedding.
as for marques, its still a very long shot but not ruled out 100% (95% out)
I need to stick the CAS onto an oscilloscope and check to make sure im getting a clean signal out of it.
That'll verify whether its the CAS that dead, or the ECU input.
If its the ECU, i'll have to send it to haltech and get it fixed, that could be 3 weeks.
