It's great to see the SST driving on it's own power! Did they do any chassis dyno tuning yet or did I miss that part?

Thanks
Chris

Chris,
I think you showed up just in time. You've mostly missed the "speedster's sammich shop" discussion. (The corned beef on rye is particularly good.)

I think they decided it was to badasst to sit still on any chassis dyno. The car wants to GO... strapped down or not!

The engine was already fully tuned on an engine dyno for full throttle and basic part load curves.

This week it is road tuning with multiple laptops running R/T software while the car is driving around. So may variables with the converter/tranny gearing/rear gearing/weight/cooling/differences in air between the desert and the coastline, etc. that the road allows much more precise tuning over a broad range of scenarios that we just don't get on a chassis dyno. ...and it is a lot more fun !
