Crap, the dyno operator is booked all weekends in June.

Is a dyno day on a Friday a possibility for everyone? Otherwise we have to push to July

I pretty flexible but I am sure we will loose several participants if it was on a Friday. I'm also fine with July, as long as it's not on the weekend of the 4th.

I could probably make a Friday work depending on time. I'm ok with July but i won't be around the first two weekends due to wedding and honeymoon. So either way i'm sure i can make it work.

ok guys time to pick some new dates. Is everyone still wanting to do this?

I can check on July 22 or August 5 or August 12. Either of those work for everyone? If so I'll call and see if I can get it locked in

Dyno shop just confirmed, we are scheduled for August 12, 2017!

We need 10 cars to get the $60/car (3 pulls each car) deal.

We can start the first car on the dyno at 9am.

I need to start keeping a list of cars and contact information so I can distribute details and alert everyone to any last minute changes. Anyone want to volunteer for that?

Dyno is at A&A Machine in Davison, MI

Sounds great, spread the word, but we do need to keep track of how many people want to run their car.

That would be great!

Its a decent setup. I wouldn't call it a tuning shop, these guys mainly do old school muscle car engine builds. But the dyno operator is a really great guy and he straps the cars down really well. I've seen him use 4 straps out back and two out front at times. The dyno bay is purpose built with huge fans in the back that draw air through the bay and tie down hooks anchored into the concrete.

Yep! My new (to me) exhaust is on, I'm ready to see if it changed anything at all.

How we doing with our attendee list? We still have 10?
