Dyno day near Flint, MI on May 14, 2016

We're on!

I've got a line on a shop with a dynojet that will do 3 pulls for $60 per car if we get 10 or more people.

Date is May 14, 2016

PM me your email address and a phone number I can contact you at if you are interested.

I wont be sharing your contact information with anybody but myself, and it will be used solely for the purpose of coordinating this event.
I'll primarily use email to communicate with those on the list, but may try to call you if I have trouble getting a response via email.


Lapeer dragway is like 20 minutes away from the dyno. This will be a fun Saturday.

They have a pretty decent setup, here is a pic of my car when I was there this summer:



The plywood doors in back open up to HUGE fans that suck air through the entire bay.

How many members do we have in the lower michigan area?

How much if you don't get 10 or more to show? I ask because it's been a week and no other replies.
I would do it out of curiosity to see how my engine is holding up at around 130,000.

For one-off dyno sessions he charges $150. Maybe he'd give us a break if you and I coordinate a morning or afternoon to go.

The more we get the better price he'll give us.

I haven't posted on any other boards yet, but I want to do that and see if we get more interest.

Okay, I guess we can see how many people read this over the next couple months and go from there.
I bet Wrig and a few others would be interested as well.

I'm thinking we should throw a date out there, like May 14, 2016.

Any takers? If I can get about 10 of us to commit, I'll call the shop and lock in the date.

ok folks, first post updated, it's on!

I've gotten some interest on the other boards as well so I called the shop and locked in the date.

Be sure to PM me if you're interested so I can add you to the list of attendees.

We have 18 slots we can fill.
I have 9 people that want to go, but only 6 of them confirmed.

PM me if you would like to run on the dyno, $60 is a great deal!

Sure is, any car really. Just not AWD guys because its a dynojet for 2wd cars.

I just filled all 18 slots, but can put you on a waitlist in case someone backs out.

Two weeks to go!

I have 1 slot available still, since one driver had to back out.

There's a sweet lineup of cars. Everything from e30, e46, e9x, e39, M3's, M5's, etc.

If anyone wants to just come hang out, you're welcome to!

If you want to run on the dyno, send me a PM so I can get you some details and contact info.
