    Those with too low cars will need to be prepared to bring their coilie c spanners and wind the fronts up if required.

    I know everywhere is different and it's the first one you've run, for reference I've seen JKM run 28 cars on a dyno day, 3 runs each with a print out, and it was all over by 2pm!

    If you've got room I'd love to have a power run, but I guess it's all time dependent so I havnt put my name on the list! Feel
    Free to add me if you think there's time!

    There's no harm in having a reserve list, just incase someone drops out.

    Bill will have his hands full on the day also, need a bit more manpower to get through more cars in one session.

    Yes I know.. and I know my rollers now have done 35 cars in a day when at previous premesis, but that is not giving the cars the attention they deserve, its not vagcom logging during the runs, and not datalogging either.. I am going for quality not qty for this first day..

    I can easily ******* thru cars just giving simple power runs, but, I am all too experienced to know there's always an aftermath from dyno days where people moan and speculate as to what went wrong, what went right, why he made more than me, whats wrong with my car etc etc... ;) So I ill do logs, during runs so all is evident there and then, and proper comparisons can be made, and reviewed thereafter. Doing it this way is slower.. yep.. and not in my interest at all to be honest, as I will make more money if I cram as many power runs into the day, bollocking thru the cars, 3 quick power runs, on-off, printout, money thanks bye, next...... IF that was what I was about. Which it is not.

    Hope this explains..
    cheers
    bill

    That's 100% cool Bill, I hope it didn't come across like I was trying to convince you to take a load more cars! I've put my name down on the list anyway as suggested, if there's time then great, if not, it sounds like it'll be a highly interesting day still anyway.

    Nice to hear you're going to take a more thorough approach too, almost all dyno days I've ever been to have been of the ''on-off, printout, money thanks bye, next'' type!
