Exclamation Dyno time

ok everyone i hve a buddy who runs a dyno shop in lakewood. it is a superflow dyno and is one of the most accurate dynos out there.
who would want to get together maybe as a meet or something and dyno the cars. right now we need 5 cars for 350.00 but i am sure i can swing a better deal if we get more cars to go.
i want positive confirmations on who will go. none of this i will go, the last minute oh i can't go because... basically this wll be setup on the more cars wehave the better the deal. so if you don't show someone else is going to have to pick up the extra cost of you not bein there.

Well youknow how my job is. So I cannot commit to it unless it is short notice. And that is provided I have the funds. I am interested however.

speeking of dyno's. This is off subject a bit. But did the rest of you guys have performance issues yesterday? (sunday) with the 102 degree weather. Kinda of a "duhhh" qustion, but I really noticed it yesterday. Even with all the windows open doing 70 onthe interstate I was still sweating.

I wonder, does the weather effect the dyno. i.e. if it is hot out like yesterday, or if it cold, or raining etc?????

I did notice it was a little "blah" esp. with the A/C on. But then again, it was over 100* yesterday.

Not exactly that kind of weather. More less the humidity, because it is more dense than dry air. The less humidity the better she'll run. Which is why altitutde affects you 1/4 mile, mpg, psi, etc is because of pressure which comes from the high altitude. And that is the same pressure as humidity causes, by all of the extra molecules being forced into your engine.

Well that makes perfect sence. I'm sure if I would have thought more into it I would have come to that conclusion. But it is better to hear it from someone else.

And yeah the altitude does effect. I moved to Denver (600 feet) from Detroit (600). I lost alot of time on my 1/4 mile runs. And I'm not the best drag racer (my launches need work,(Thank you Ingall's engineering for help with that). I wish I would have gotten a dyno before I moved so I could have documentation on the differences.
