Speaking of dynos

Post by Ricci Wright » Sun Apr 14, 2019 7:13 pm

We have one in the “Speed Shop” we share a parking lot with and I hear these “Tuners” with their lap tops running these cars till they sound like they are gonna blow up and I think no way in hell would I let them touch my car. People bring brand new Vets and Shelbys and let these guys “tune” them so they will go faster. Most of the people around here should be on bicycles to start with. They come roaring up on my ass on the road, as long as it’s a straight road,but give me a series of curves and they are suddenly a hundred yards behind me and my 180 hp car. Upon further thought I am wrong about the bicycles, I think peddle cars would be more suitable for the majority of drivers around here. And don’t bother paying extra for turn signals cause they won’t use em.

My dad wouldn’t buy a car with a V-8 because of poor gas mileage. That was when gas was 23c per gallon and he drove maybe 4000 miles in a year.

I have had a number of cars and motorcycles dyno tuned. Doesn't stress the motor any more than accelerating on the road and ensures the proper air/fuel mixture. This is important if you have made any modifications to a fuel injected engine. Even small adjustments like air intake more open exhaust. It is extremely critical if you have changed out cam, headers or flowed the heads.

Love to hear engines screaming on the Dyno.

In Atlanta using a turn signal is a sign of weakness ;)

Peddle cars are fine but the last thing we need are more frickin bicycles on the road.
