I am not sure what kind of Dyno it was. I thought it was a Dyno-Mite ??? I looked up on the internet and found this site.

That's correct we have a Dinomite dyno and typically on ours a stock ls3 M6 Camaro or Corvette puts down between 355 and 365 on the depending on the car. The intake alone gains 7-10rwhp. The headers 15-18. The tune 12-18.

Thank you to everyone who made it out. We had a blast.

Don't take that as bashing. I'm trying to educate myself and along the way if it helps someone else, then fine. Im no tuner but I know a Mustang reads lower. If you take into account a 20% drivetrain loss, then360 is right in the ball park. I've seen other stock cars closer to 380. I did some reading on SAE correction last night (nothing else to do here) to understand how it brings the numbers down. I was considering bring my car over to see how it compares to where the work was done. I'd expect a little lower number now that I know a little more considering temp and all that. Keep up the good work. You obviously have a huge following of loyal customers. Oh and I don't race so have no time slips for comparison. Been think about trying it tho. Not worried about how car would perform. More worried about driver. If I do and get some experience I'd be glad to post them.

Yes!! Uh I mean uh that sux. Sorry Ray. Your too fast anyway. Now Neomi has a chance to dominate. Gonna have to have Pat check that car and make sure there are no illegal mods.

I kid, I kid. I feel your pain. There's always next month for me. At least you have Sunday. Y'all have fun. Look forward to watching the video. Not much else to do.

Looks like it should warm up to 75 by around noon tomorrow. The way I look at it is bring on the cold, our car run better when it is cold. Since this is the red course we should be able to use more of our V8 power on the straight away, assuming they don't add some boxes or slaloms to slow it down because it is "unsafe" or "unfair" for us to have straight aways.

As long as you don't get crazy and start showing off your big power Clark, they should leave it alone. There was only one member who actually attended the meetings who made that suggestion. That was months ago and he is no longer actively participating since his wife is having triplets. James wasn't keen on the idea of making changes so unless there are issues it should not happen. Have fun and be safe. If y'all can try to take note of the speeds your hitting, I'd be curious how fast this fast course really is.

Cold: Good for engines, bad for grip. I would rather have the grip.
