Yeah, we all did last time....they dont give a **** what we do really. Really cool guys....just strapped us down each time and let us go.

(Acutally, Brad was probably the only miata without a laptop hooked up last time )

Pretty much what I'm used to; first time I was on a dyno the operator was like here's the computer here's the brake, have fun.

Even better, talked to the dyno owner and he said that they have a propane grill if we wanted to bring anything to grill! Double checked to make sure it was okay to bring alcohol as well and was given the green light so if you so desire, bring a cooler with food and spirits!
Ohhh? food AND cars..

fatty loves BBQ.

Darn, I have to cancel. Sorry.

Tim cautioned me that dyno-ing my car while it's running lean is a BAD idea. But the good news is that I bought a set of larger injectors today. That will give me more fuel. They should arrive in a few days and hopefully I can catch the next dyno day.

305 from a Supra. (I don't need / can't use anything too much bigger, since I have the stock ECU.)

you can borrow mine if you want me to bring an extra set and do a bit of quick tuning before straping on.

Go Karting is actually happening? Or has the consensus not really been reached yet?

Also the Karting place's website is down and I was trying to figure out how much there abouts it would cost. I guess I'll just play it by ear and bring my helmet. I'll probably show up later than earlier so that I can get some work done in the morning.

actually instead of going backwards, you guys wanna take GW to 395N into the city and I'll meet you there? like i said, it's super easy to get on 95 N from where I live. 5min.
