Some of the Bamamopars guys are planning to do a dyno day at Trackmasters, the date will be June 9th starting at 9AM. This will be open to all 2wd cars, trucks, and bikes.

The price will be $40 for 3 pulls for 10 or more cars, add $10 if you want the wideband. Mark yourself attending so we can get an accurate count.

The day was almost perfect for some dyno runs. Not terribly hot to skew numbers to the low side, and not too cold to skew them to the high side. I didn't arrive as early as I wanted due to some memory card problems, so I missed some of the first runs of the day.

On my way over, I saw some interesting cars--enthusiasts were definitely out taking advantage of the day, even if it was just running some errands.





It was a really strong turnout for the dyno day with a total of 17 cars dyno'd. The numbers ranged from just above 100hp to over 500hp, and there was a little bit of everything--from import to exotic, old muscle to new muscle--you name it, it was there. There were even some nice cars that just passed by on the street. Bama Mopars did some great work putting this together, just like they do at their monthly cruise-in.


I predominantly shot video of each of the runs, but towards the end I ran out of battery power when I discovered that my second battery wasn't charged like I thought it was. So I milked what I could out of the first one, getting at least one run of everyone.

And I also took pictures, including shots of the Huntsville Car Scene stickers on many of the cars. Get your sticker or vinyl cling today and help support the site!



zl427 (Henry) was the last to dyno his car and invited me to join him for lunch since he had some time to kill before heading to Cafe 302. It was his first time heading out to 302 and I wanted to join everyone going tonight, but I needed to get back home and catch up on work. I want to thank Henry for the meal and the conversation--it's always great to get away and just socialize. See everyone next time! -- Samir

It's fat and it's slow right now, so don't expect much.

Question (I hope its not a stupid one), if I have a Predator tune on my car, would there be any point in a dyno?

Sure, it's all for fun anyway. There won't really be any time to tune your car in this setting but you'll have a base line number for future mods.

just logs your air/fuel ratio and adds it to the dyno chart.

Perfect timing on this. Right in the middle of my BMW 325e to 2.7i build. A '90 motor and all related electronics will be here tomorrow for the final upgrades to transform the 325e.

your welcome, looking forward to it!
thanks for fixing the title, can you also change the body from "the date will probably be June 2nd or 9th in the AM" to read "the date will be June 9th starting at 9AM"
