Default MD/VA/PA Fall Dyno Day and Meet Oct 15 '11

Woot

To occur in the month of October. The objective of the dyno day is to determine if I can make more power than GOD. In my case, that means more than my prior record of 280hp on Ed's dyno. Secondary objective will be for Lenny to see if he can make more than 130hp.

The weather should be nice and the roads still warm enough for a fun rally among the foothills of ye old Appalachia. Seriously, there are some very nice driving roads in the area.

So far, this dyno day has a perfect record with no engine deaths in transit to, or on the dyno. Last Spring's (summer) turnout was pretty good even though everyone was sad that I had to leave early.

Put a post up here if you want to reserve a slot and I will update the list.

INFORMATION

PRICE

$50/car ~ 3 pulls with some cool down time between pulls if you want to **** around with your .msq or quickly swap out a part. The dyno owner is a nat-aspirated miata racer so if you have some interesting part to test he might be interested in spending a little more time on it. No guarantees.

DATE

OCTOBER 15, CATURDAY

LOCATION

York Automotive
300 South Main Street
Mt Airy, MD 21771-5389

TIMES

9AM UNTIL 5PMISH OR UNTIL EVERYONE HAS DONE THEIR PULLS

DIRECTIONS

Take I70 to route 27. Go straight through the traffic light and around the bend and you will be on Main street. Go down main street about a mile until you reach an "old town" area. About as soon as you reach the "old town" area, you will see a tiny sign for "York Automotive" on the left. Turn in alley and park in the gravel parking lot down the hill.

WHO CAN COME

Miatas are first come first serve. If you want to bring buddies who do not have miatas, that will be fine and they can do their pulls last. More the merrier but no jerks allowed. I ******* hate jerks.

I can say without a doubt I can not make it October 1. I am almost positive I will still be in Atlanta at Petit Lemans.

If you come down my offer still stands strong. We can start the morning off by doing shots of islay over the rollers.

I getting ready for someone to mention "I'm down for karting" just so I can be the first to say "I'm down for farting". That was the funniest **** ever last time!
