1- Yes
2- Yes
3- Yes
4- Dunno. Depends what else comes up. Doubt it, though.

I would also like to offer to bring some doughnuts or something, maybe a couple boxes of coffee from Dunkin', if people are interested. If pizza is in order for lunch, please oh please oh please order from Margherita's if they'll deliver that far. If not I'd be tempted to drive the 3 miles to get it.

If people would be interested in hitting any of the local watering holes afterward, I'd be down for that fo' sho'.

It's BEGi's exhaust mani but AbsurdFlow downpipe and exhaust

However, not sure it's going to happen. Had to take car off the road so I could afford to insure my new van. We'll see. I don't like to break the law when it comes to driving.

Bet is still on. Will you accept another DynoJet location closer to home?

I'm confident about making 233hp, not so sure about the 235 ft. lb. ....

Only if I re-dyno the daily since we have no idea how it compares directly to the dyno in DE. Eh, but then I have to pay to dyno again. Oh, and my setup will be completely different. Just let one of the Mobsters take your car down for you and we'll take care of it....



btw, did we actually bet money?

Any objection to an FSAE car or car(s) tagging along as well? They'd be paying. No more than two. Most likely one.


Edit: They'd help make the Miatas look large and powerful.

Not looking good for me. I'm on vacation from the 24 to the 1st, so I won't have time to finish up stuff in the last week. If I could get it done beforehand that would be great.

I'll try and get to the remaining wiring this weekend. If I can get that done and fire up HP tuners to check all the sensors, I might need to get one of you NOVA bitches over the following weekend to get the dash back on.

Not a problem at all. The more the merrier. If fact, I'm pretty sure that the U. of Delaware guys have dyno'd their FSAE car there.

Okay bitches, it's on like donkey kong.

Dyno day will start at 9am, and they'll stay until late if necessary. There is no need to RSVP, you can just come, even if it's last minute, but I will give dibs on slots to those that have semi-rsvp'ed here if we run low on slots.

Dyno address is 73 Albe Drive, Newark, DE 19702. Their number there is (302)369-0200.

Price will be $60 per car. That is for roughly four pulls with a wideband. Now they know us and have always been lenient with us in terms of semi-tuning on the dyno as well as getting more than four runs. That being said this is NOT a tuning day so let's not wear out our welcome. If you plan on making adjustments (diff spark maps/bandaids/etc...) between runs, please have as much as you can ready in advance so we can keep the flow of cars on/off the dyno a smooth affair.

If you plan on dynoing, when you get there, find me and sign a release for the dyno guys and I'll put you on the list. If you want to go kart racing, please let me know by 11am so we can call ahead to reserve a race, and bring your own helmet if you got one so you don't need a loaner.

Most importantly, food (pizza) is being provided by Rick our admin so make sure to thank him. You are always welcome to bring any drinks/snacks you want as well.

See you guys there!
