Default Chicago Dyno Day

I'm in the process of setting up a dynoday with RC Autoworks in Bridgview. Got the ok from Bob the owner, just need to figure out dates(so far we're thinking the 8th of Nov) and cost. Already have about 10 cars for the minimum on facebook. Price will probably be $60-$70 for 3 pulls. Should be a nice day to hangout at the shop and grill some food while showing Honda people our 100hp *****!

I made the page form the midwest miatas facebook group. If you don't like facebook etc just comment or message me here and I'll make sure to keep this updated with any changes.

It's only 3 hours. I can do a day trip for some fun and such. Car will need to be dyno'd anyways, and won't have time before the challenge i don't think.

I'm in. I went to the one last year and am now throwing down double the boost I was then. Curious to see how much that translates to on the dyno.

Just don't make fun of my FD when it makes stock power mkay? It hurt a little last year when all those miatas put down more than my RX8.

Can you guy's who don't have facebook send me your full names so I can add you to the list?

So far we have 14 people who have said they want to purchase dyno time. I talked with Bob the owner and he wants a prepayed deposit so we know for sure people are coming since he is setting aside a Saturday for us. It will likely be through paypal or by phone/email. I will post more info when I have it.

Pricing will be their normal rate if you show up and did not prepay. Only prepaid people will get the group discount.

$80 for 3 pulls. (normal rate)
$70 for 3 pulls. (Group rate 10 cars prepaid)
The price goes down the more cars we get.
This pricing is subject to change and is not final but what Bob and I talked about. Pricing will be final once we set up the prepayment method(most likely paypal)

The guys at RC autoworks are pretty cool. Theyre one of the big supporters of the Honda D series community over at d-series.org.
