Default 2nd Annual North-East Dyno Day - Info

Okay the date is set and below are the details. Any questions, PM me. Also, if you plan to come, please PM me with your contact info and when you think you'll be showing up. I will update the who's coming list as I get PMs.

Date: May 12, 2007 Saturday

Place: Dyno is in Delaware. Website here: http://www.aca-performance.com/default.htm After the dyno, depending upon majority rules vote, we'll either be going to northern MD at http://www.cecilcountydragway.com/ for some 1/4 runs/races with race gas available OR stay in DE at http://www.midatlanticgrandprix.com/...COME_RACE_FANS for some kart racing.

Time: 1) Dyno runs will start at 8:30am until we're done. We will start dynoing right away as last time we were there until almost 2pm with only 6 cars so no futzing around.

2)Obviously I don't expect everyone there at 8:30 so I guess people will trickle in throughout the morning.

3)Then, we will be ordering pizza to the dyno around noon since going out to eat just took too much time.

4)After we're done dynoing and eating, it's either off to the drag strip or kart track. We could always split into two groups at this point if people are divided.

What to bring: 1) $50 for the dyno (cash or cc). They basically let us do 4 pulls (usually a few more) with some tweaks in between. Please do not plan on doing any lengthy tuning on the dyno so we can get everyone on in a timely manner.

2) A helmet, if you have one, in case we go kart racing. You don't need one, but who wants to wear someone else's sweaty helmet if ya got your own.

3) Beer or drink of choice to go with the pizza, if you are coming for lunch.

4) Tools, spare parts, etc... as needed.

I'll be at Maple Grove Raceway (Reading, PA) for the filming of Pinks. A few friends will be there with their cars so I'll be doing some photography for the event.
