Hey Mike, sorry if there was a misunderstanding but I'm not looking to put my V2 on the dyno on 12/12. Haven't done any mods and am not planning on in the near future. I just want to come and hang out with V dudes and listen to the engines scream :)

Zigg! no worries man! it's all for fun. I'll put you down for #1 spectator ;) We just worked an an N/A 99 cobra today - all motor it put down 698. Talk about using the right combination of parts...lol

Looking forward to meeting you.

four more days until Dyno Day and get together!! We're on either way, So if it's just a few of us that's ok too. Is a 10am meet time ok with everyone? I have another local manual 09V coming, but he's not on the board.

Wideband is available at this shop as well.

looks like i'll be able to make it...don't plan on doing any dyno runs though, just hang out and revel in the camaraderie. forecast is calling for rain, is there an inclement wx plan in place?

doh, good call on the weather. I don't know if the following weekend would work better for all. Let's get a show of hands :)

according to an updated forecast on weather.com, the rain is going to hold off until sunday. are we still a go for this weekend or is the 19th the new day? i guess i should've waited until the day was closer to mention the forecast instead of doing it too far in advanced...my bad... :(

No worries! We are on for this Saturday, 12/12. As stated, the updated forecast puts the rain off until the evening. Even if only one or two cars hit the rollers it will be nice to catch up with everyone so we can meet and plan track days (road coarse and strip) There is a map embedded in the original post. Click on the Steve ashworth performance link. See you guys there!

I will only be coming if I can hit the rollers and I don't have much time to spend hanging out Saturday. I'll be there an hour tops. Let me know if I can get on early MSJ. Looks like my name was on the list right away. :xgrin:

For some reason I am unable to edit the original post so I am unable to edit the list. They'll just be a few of us on the rollers, but no worries - it's just a good place to get together and shoot the shit about our cars. Mine is stock save a 3" mandrel bend exhaust from the headers back. Gave me a good 25 rwhp.

I'm too lazy to drag my practice rig out for the laps around VIR on iRacing, but I will bring coffee and donuts :)

My car is filthy. Wonder if it will affect the HP!

Coffee in hand...and the car is clean now!:rimshot:

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, no one drives my car on the dyno but me. :rimshot:

from far away my rims look like they're powdercoated dark gray from all the brake dust...it actually looks pretty cool, but not so much up close. since stix cleaned up i feel the pressure to at least spray mine off.

Ziggerman

My car is dirty, too, but like ecor I felt compelled to at least clean the rims today. Nothing screams dirty car like dirty rims...

No worries Stix. They let all customers run their own cars on the roller.

Just washed mine in the garage - have hot and cold water inside :)

I like that look. Nickel plating would be sweet.

Nice to meet everyone today! We had 7 V2's show today, which I thought was a great number for our small sleepy town area...lol I'll post a couple pics tomorrow after I dig my SD card out of the small hole in the trunk where the trunk lid latches....lol

yep, it was great to meet and greet with fellow V enthusiasts! all that was missing was red V to complete the color palette.

It sure was a great meet. I finally got to hear a V2 scream on the dyno. Thank you Mike for setting this up and also for the coffee and donuts!

Anytime Guys! ralph, it was my pleasure :) I assume the group will mod away over the holidays and get more break in miles on. Let's plan another get together after the new year after the holidays - jan/feb.

we can jump in with my corvette buddies for drag days and with the porsche club for our road course events.

If I don't catch up with you guys soon I wish you all a very safe and happy Holiday Season!

anytime Chuck! I'm glad you got the product in. If you head to campus before the next get together give me a buzz. I'd love to check it out. My supplier hasn't ordered mine yet, although I thought he did...lol

I'll be ready to go back on the 9th, if anyone is interested. Everything is sorted out and I'm hoping to have a much better day this time out!
