That is a pretty hefty rig to pull with your Q7. 8,000lbs all in? Time for a diesel dually?

Hoping your next track day goes smoother.

This weekend we are heading to WSIR where there will probably be 250 Porsche sharing 2 tracks. Forecast is 95F on Sunday. Eeesh!
Yup - I was thinking that or fuel pump initially.

The car and trailer combined weigh just under 5,800 loaded - as it's a 20 ft Featherlite aluminum trailer. The Q7 usually tows it no problem as it's rated 7k and have the 3.0 TDI in it with 450+ ftlbs of torque. We are now waiting to here on the status of the "fix" for it and if that doesn't happen by November - then they'll buy it back. At that point we'll probably wind up with a truck, although this is my wifes car and daily driver. She's not really thrilled about getting a truck....
