Sat 3rd April - Dyno Day (Magazine feature!) 8 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 213
UPDATE (15-Feb): Okay, we have had sponsorship of prizes from various traders in the UK. Very big thanks to the guys for helping out. Please take time to visit the links below as they are constantly updating their product ranges.

Tim @ TBDev - link to the TB Dev forum is on mr2.ie - and you can also go direct to the TBDev shop at TB Dev catalog link - any tuning parts you need, Tim has them or can get them

Steve @ Mr2Only - excellent MR2 magazine - love when this mag arrives in the post Subscribe and also watch out for specials on back issues - Mr2 Only magazine link

Chris @ Mr2 Gear - great range of gear knobs for you MR2 (and will fit other Toyotas). More products beng added in 2010 MR2 Gear link

Ben @ CarBenFibre Creations - not just carbon fibre interior and aero-kits - check out the site for all the products. New bodykits in 2010 - CarBenFibre Creations link




UPDATE (9-Feb): I was just speaking to Steve from MR2 Only magazine and he is loking to have the Dyno Day in one of the upcoming issues. So, get your cars all shined up and your hair brushed !! I've seen quite a few people have a good inerest in car photography - so, Steve will be looking for some good pics on the day. Also, if anyone fances themselves to write the article to go along wth it, let me know (Obviousy Steve, the editor will review etc )

Okay, we're going to have a Dyno Day on the first weekend in April, at TDP.

Don't think of a dyno day as only for those with huge hp - aside from a great day out and having hp figures to talk about in the pub , a dyno run can be a very good engine health check.

Date for the Dyno Day is Saturday, 3rd April (UPDATE : Confirmed with TDP).

Anyway, for those who have not been there, they have a Dynapack setup.

Interesting link on Dynapack dynamometers

If we can get 10, we get it for only 40 euros per head. If we pay 45 euros, we can get a few prizes. Not all prizes for big power - have something for maybe show 'n shine, best NA etc. And have a BBQ etc going on during the day.

Okay, date and time confirmed with TDP.

Sat 3rd April and 9.30am start. So, cars need to be there by 9.15am.

We are going to have to take deposits on this because I am going to have to pay TDP a deposit.

Deposits will, of course, be refunded if TDP have to cancel the day for whatever reason.

At the moment, we're at 50 euros per car - lets try get the 10 cars and bring it down to 40 euros per head.

Is everyone okay with the extra fiver for prizes/food ? So, if we get the 10 cars, we pay 45 euros.

Either way, we'll need to put a 20 euro deposit down.

The max they can take on the day is 15 2WD cars. If we are having problems making the 10 cars, I think we should open it up to other cars, in the following order :

1) 2WD Celicas
2) Other 2WD Toyotas
3) 2WD other makes

I'd estimate about 20 mins per car and with 10 cars, it'd bring us up to about 1pm or so.

hmm, that might be a touch early for people not coming from Dublin and make it hard to get numbers. Were they flexible on the timing at all?

I think we should be okay. Most so far are from in and around Dublin, so we can pencil them in first. I don't want to have a free for all, as regards to when people arrive down So, start time is 9.15 - and if there are a few others from further afield, I'll check with them via pm to arrange times.

Wow, thats excellent, I understand that people a bit further away may arrive a bit later than 9:15 but it would be great to head down in convoy and get some decent photo's, perfect opportunities for photo's would be taking a few from one of the bridges on the m50 as were all heading under passing through them etc and some great scenery passing through glen of the downs etc

Well done spidey even if we're not all going down at the same time, i'm sure at some stage all the cars will be there together, we could line them up in front of tdp for pictures, should look pretty good. If everyone can stay til the end then we could do dshamrock's ideas on the way home. A load of mr2s across 4 lanes on the m50 would look brilliant!
