VMSC will host its annual Dyno Day at Performance Autosport on 2/23. The tentative start time is 10:00. We are sharing this day with a club from the Beach called Torque Spec. They have some autocrossers as well. http://www.torque-spec.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=243

Since we are joining with the other club, we should easily meet the bogey of 10 cars on the dyno to get the best price of $50 for 3 pulls with air/fuel ratio.

Directions are on Performance Autosport's website, http://performanceautosport.com/.

Please let me know here if you are going to want a dyno slot. I will need to give Kevin a headcount about a week out. Spectators are welcome.

I'd like one assuming my Miata is running again by then.  I'd say it's 50/50 at this point.

Ok, just let me know.

Bernard, if you make it to Dyno Day we can shoot for another Youtube video and see if we can get more than 35,000 hits next time!

Great. We have 4 interested in this point. I know there are at least a couple of others, depending on how quickly they can finish work on their cars.

Please give me your real name when you sign up. I can connect some handles to names, but not all.

I may be in it for myself again as well, but I won't know for sure until closer to the deadline. It depends on how fast my downpipe comes in and whether I can everything installed in time.

Ya I know the guys at Adrenaline and have been on there dyno a few times. Mil-spec also has an awd dyno in Va Beach. But its not the same kind of fun if you dyno alone.  Sad

That's about how it works. You might want to get in the doughnut line too! They go really fast, but not as fast as your car.

Need to throw the Camaro on there too.  New Intake and added Wheels so need to see how the unsprung weight of those has affected power.  Count me in, and not hard for me to find as I work next door basically!

I hope I can make it.
I had last Friday off. Weather was good, and I tried, yes I tried, to put some more miles on it. 20 minutes away from the house my battery just died. Claudia had to resque my. Now the jumper didn't work, not enough juce to get it started. She stayed with the car and I took her car and get the battery out of the 944. Bingo, I was able to drive back home. New battery is installed, still working on a few other things. No steering wheel right now. Don't ask !

Cheers
