During this pandemic period we've been focusing on tuning development on new platforms as well as finishing off our new blog section on our site. We've seeded it with a few threads, and will be adding a new blog post every day, please check it out and if you have a moment, sign up, either with your thanas.co.za details or with your Facebook details and leave a comment, question or drop a like directly onto the post itself!

Let us know what kind of technical threads you would like as well. Here is the link to our blog section, and a link to some of the existing threads as well!

I’m digging the G5 content & I’m surprised at how many people are going BT on this platform.

Looking fwd to the latest post.

This is the type of detail car enthusiasts don't get from tuners, well-done Thanas. Will be reading this as bedtime content over the weekend.
