Nothing really new with the car, did however get a new 4 post and 2 post car lifts. Haven't gotten the two post installed yet. I love not having to roll around on a creeper. I am seriously going to wear the thing out using it for my car.

And I also finally got some gauges to fill the radio plate I had made.

Well we looked at them yesterday, the one we are going to end up getting is a DYNOmite Formula SAE / Legends Dyno. Since 99% percent of the work we do is on Legends/Thunder Roadsters/Baby Grands/Mini Sprints and Yamaha FJ1100-1200 motorcycles, that dyno suits the business stand point perfectly.

But here is where it may run into and issue with what I want to do. For that model the roller is 64" and my car with the Toyo R888 205/55 15 is right at 64-65". But with stockers on the car it is about 61" so that means whenever I wanna put a Miata on there stock size tires and wheels have to go on the back. Although I don't think that should be too much of an issue.

Small price to pay to be able to tune your beast without killing ourselves.

Is it a huge deal to have larger tires than the rollers? You can tell I know almost nothing about dyno's lol

(*edit: I mean I know its probably going to be off, but for strictly tuning purposes and comparing before/after I think it should still be fine)

If the rollers are flush with the floor plate it would be bad. I dont see the problem if they rollers are raised. But since FSAE and Legends ride heights are normally in the sub 4" range, it might just have flush rollers.

The rollers will be raised from the deck. And if I have to put stock tires on it, it's a small price to pay.

A couple of videos from last night, unknown mods to the Evo. Plate read "wicked x" or some **** like that. Had all sorts of gauges, BOV, huge exhaust. He laughed when I asked to run. He then said from a roll and I laughed and asked "are you sure you don't want to go from a dig?"

Best part, on the trunk he had a sticker that said "sti ?"

More legendary commentary from my buddy.

Around here, the more mods an evo/wrx has, the slower it likely is.

Why? Because they're all hacked and never EVER sorted. But they gotz the sweet partz sheet.

The funniest part was he kept wanting to race from a 20 roll, only recorded two of them be we raced 4 times. He lost every time and still wanted to go from a 20. I didn't understand. I thought I jumped the 2nd one but I don't think I did now watching the video. I even asked if he wanted to go from a dig since we was awd. He didn't partake in my shenanigans for that.

That's 23 pounds. Here are some videos from Oakland on Saturday night. Excuse the videoing, it wasn't me.

Up first is WS6 Trans Am on Hoosier slicks and a 100 shot. Also had a cam and exhaust
This race was originally supposed to be against a WRX, but a C63 AMG decided to race also.
These next two are up against a Pro Charged Olds 442, the in car commentary was because someone starting whipping donuts at the top end of the run. Then they killed it right in my lane. Luckily we weren't going that fast, he gave up after 4th gear.
Here is the girlfriends 2012 stage 2 WRX
And this is from Friday night, local guy. Unknown mods. I had a terrible launch.

That top end for sure, although, it's launching pretty hard for what it is.

I am racing a EG civic on Wednesday night for $500. He is built NA with slicks. And apparently he can beat anyone around. He originally said $300 but I said if you are that serious about racing me you'll come up with the extra $200.

This is a video of the car, start it at 2:05. There are two passes, one looks like a Mustang and the other is a trans am (not the one I raced). Looks like as soon as he gets ahead he throws the hazards on. Not even a 1/8 mile out of the hole. I am pretty confident I can take it.

Looks like you would take that civic easily, hard to tell though without a race. Just make sure he doesn't see all your videos, lol.
