Another 2007 NE meet would be fun. I expect to go in the next two week or so myself.

Maybe if "someone" would organize one in VA or MD, the NE guys would road trip and take the onus off Tom

I didn't say anything about the couch or your wife, but if that's an option..........



EDIT: Sorry, for a minute I didn't realize I wasn't on the Mob site.

That Deleware drive was 4hrs but worth it. I'd love to find place in Richmond that would be a little longer for the NoVa/DC types but would proabably entice a few NC guys to come up!

And WTF is with only "1 car per hour"??? What if a guy only needs 3 runs... do we wait 50mins until the end of the hour so the next guy can go? What's the point of renting it out for the day then if we're limited in the number of cars? I think that's crap!

It's a load based dyno, we are talking an hour of EFI tuning here. not a few pulls to spin a roller.

how many cars did we do last time? 10ish? Maybe we could sweet talk GT into letting us do a few short pulls.

I bet if we have more than 8 and a few only want three pulls they'd have no issues

I'll get cracking on it for soon, but I was hoping for it to be a smaller tuning session dyno day, but whatever, the more the merrier.

IMHO, I think that for tuning, it's better to have fewer cars and pay for the loading dyno, but for a full out dyno day, it just seems to keep growing so cheaper and just power runs makes more sense. Plus, if we keep going back to the same dyno the results are more comparable in a way.

Heck, if there's a lot of interest beside a few local guys, I'll make better plans, just let me know.

I'd love in the spring to have a big dyno day and have peeps chip in and I'll buy food/drink for the grill at the dyno to have a big BBQ as well since it seems to take almost all day. Or, if some of the guys want to make a longer weekend of it, there is a ton of fun stuff that we never get to because we're stuck at the dyno. Just to name a few that are right nearby: paintball, kart racing, firing range (with rental fully autos), drag strip, and good eats for the fatties. I'm running it by the wife (and it might be college style crashing on the floor type thing), but I could probably house 4-5 guys for the peeps coming up from far so we can fit in more stuff. Just a thought.

Hell, if there's enough advanced warning for next year, it would be awesome to have a east coast dyno day (somewhere between the NE and Atlanta?) and make a road trip of it. Might even get a discount if we rented a block of rooms in the same place. Just a thought.
