Yeah they are! One of my best friends James is a tech there and I know Brandon and Bob through just showing up and hanging out there. Very cool shop and thy know their stuff with Hondas. I'm probably going to have them build my motor for me in the future since I'm entirely too lazy to do so myself. I see a lot of the work that goes through there and it's all quality stuff. I see a lot of subarus and nissans up there too. I've talked to Bob briefly on it before but he said he'd love to get more Mazda's up there. I kinda want the miata crowd to come out in force for the dyno day and prove we use all 100 horse powers!

Xpost from Miata.net with latest relevant info.

Hello all,

I've set up with Bob Reese, the shop owner over at RC Autoworks in Bridgeview IL, a dyno day on their DynoJet.

I have an event page created on Facebook as the main source of information here: https://www.facebook.com/events/845950922106460

You may need to be a member of the midwest miatas facebook group in order to see the event, if that's the case just message me here and I'll get you all set up and added.

If you'd rather not deal with facebook, you may message me here or reach my email at [email protected] and I will make sure to include you in our discount prepaid list. You may also call the shop and ask Bob for more information.

The event is scheduled so far for Nov. 8th at 11am. It is a Saturday and I plan on bringing a small grill so we all can hang out and make some food while people hit the dyno.

The date and time are not yet finalized and are subject to change.

I've worked with Bob to get discounted pricing, the regular rate is $80 for 3 pulls. 10 or more cars who prepay, will get a discounted rate as we get more people. So if 10 people reserve a spot, it goes down to $70 for 3 pulls and 20 or more it goes down to $60. The goal is to get at least 20 cars on the dyno. That would put it at $60 for 3 pulls.

In order to receive the discount, you need to prepay and lock in your spot beforehand. If you show up without prepaying you will be charged the normal rate.
All payments taken are non-refundable.

If you want to attend but not run, you are welcome.

I will keep this post updated as we work out more details and finalize everything.

I currently have a running list of about 15 potential cars seeing dyno time.

What is their rate for an hour of dyno time? I may want to see what they can do tuning wise on my car. I imagine this would take place AFTER everyone has done their pulls?

Im not sure but I think we're going to avoid tuning time since to do it right it takes time. You'd need to contact Bob directly and see what he wants to do. Also he needs to make sure Brandon the in house tuner is available etc.

Ok, for those of you wanting actual dyno time. To be in on the group buy, you need to prepay via paypal. If you do not have a paypal, Robert said you may call the shop and pay over phone, but prefers to work through paypal if possible.

[email protected] is their paypal. Please send $70 and in the comment box provide your full name and what make/model/color your car is. Their phone number is: (708) 599-5884 (ALL TRANSACTIONS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE)

If we get more than 20 cars pre-payed well refund the $10.

Bob also asks to make sure your car is stable to get on the dyno and not leaking any sort of fluids or anything. For the $70 you will get 3 pulls.

I'm going to try to stop by with the K24 car if all goes according to plan, although probably won't bother to put it on the dyno.

I wish I could go just to see everyone's car's. I work that day,and happen to work in bridgeview. Honestly I'm close enough to it that If anyone's car is loud enough I may hear it. Maybe I would stop by on my lunch to spectate.

I'm out for dyno pulls. Car that i was going to do pulls with suffered a crippling electrical failure on Saturday. I'm reasonably sure it'll run just fine, but it's completely unsafe to drive, so i won't even be able to break in the motor/clutch.

May still come out to watch. With this car being down, i don't have anything on my plate for a couple months other than trying to find a winter beater.

The problem IS Swank Force One (Pulled out of GRM $2014 on Saturday). I wasn't going to waste my time dyno-ing yet another BP car.

If i come to spectate, which i will absolutely try to do because it'd be awesome to meet you dudes, it'll be in the 2554 Of Doom.

Think of it as an operational test of your suspension components. Or a game of dodgehole!

Stock original suspension, so it'll be a game to see how much camber i have from the impacts by the time i get up there.
