Well I posted this in a couple other places but now it is here as well. We are planning a get together with a dyno pull/ day at the track/ and there are a couple of cruise places we could roll into this. You can do one thing or all the stuff and the cost will be easy on the pocket as well. Everything is close to one another and with some planning we could really have a great time and see what everyone has done over the winter...Let me know if you have time to come up to Milwaukee and play this spring.....Rich

The dyno is at Borchardt auto. on s 27th st. Sorry I took so long to post back... To add something that might be fun for all. There is on sunday at the track an import wars.... so we will have fun seeing some really fast imports while we are doing our thing... This sounds to be a great week end.. There is also a car cruise for sat night at a drive in just a few miles down the road..
I hope to see a lot of you guys and gals at this great event......Rich

This is the second person that has something on this date.. I want to hear from the rest of you. should we move this a week or two in one way or the other, better early or one week later?? Lets hear from everyone. We can still move it if we do it NOW....Rich

I would prefer to move it a bit. I found out I have to be in St. Louis for tuning that weekend. The weekend before it Mothers day, the weekend after is Memorial Day weekend. I think the 31st would be better. Just my .02. Phil and I would both like to attend.

My car is not done and I now coach a HS softball team which starts next week so I'm thinking my car won't be ready in time and in fact might not be back on the road until summer. I don't think I'll be making it out this year.

Ok so here we go I have everything planned out and ready to go forward. Let me tell everyone what the time table is and then we all can plan for a great week end of fun...
First things first the hotel is a holiday inn and we have a set of rooms that are set aside under the name of "Midwest Bash" and the hotel is at 13339 hospitality ct Sturtevant Wi 53177 The rates are $95 plus tax per night and that is with two per room, so bring a friend.. The rooms are for Friday May 30th thru June 1st for those who want to stay.
The dyno is for Sat morning and that is $75 for your pulls [two] if needed.. maybe more if we have to get it right.. That is in Milwaukee just 15 miles up the freeway...
Now Sat night we can go two different ways, there is a cruise night at a drive in between the dyno and the hotel we could all show up for or we are welcome to go to the track and play.. This will be up to you guys as to which way we do that night.. We can go to the track either sat night or sunday the call is ours to make. The track will work with us on that point.
Speeking of the track it is 7 miles from the hotel and they are only going to charge us normal rates to get in and add a little break for us as well. There will be other stuff going on but we will be able to do our thing without waiting in long lines all day or night.. This should be about $45 per car to get into and run..
Now the best part of this whole weekend.... Friday night there is going to be a BBQ at my place and all you got to bring is your drinks and a good mood plus you chair to sit in.. I have parking for all and I got the food covered....
So this is the plan, any questions??? if so hit me back and keep in mind you have to make your hotel plans by April 30th to get the rate and enjoy the fun.....Rich

When the time comes near, we'll need your address for the BBQ. When you know for sure what day you want to go to the track let me know so I can update the info on TCCoA. Thus far including myself, 6 people have shown interest.

My plan has us going to the cruise night, but I wanted to open up the idea of sat night. I would rather do the track on sunday but I want to make this for everyone, not just a few... When we get close I will share the other info with everyone that is coming. Thanks again for the extra help here....Rich

I would be open to that if it is cool with the rest. The more we have the better fun can be had. I think the BBQ angle will have to be looked at. I know the S.C. guys and that is cool but if we get a lot of others that might mean a small charge for hem to eat.??? Add to this I do have a SHO as well so I would not be in uncharted waters....Rich

I am trying to figure out if I should stay Sunday night or not. Any idea when our track time would be? If it is just in the morning, I can make my way back on Sunday. If it goes late, I would rather stay in town.

Invite the SHO guys :)

I have lots of stuff, what are you looking for? Big and bulky for me would be a the rear seats for a cougar and the front seat skins and foam from a 95 XR7.

Still have original head gaskets at 105k. Dont want to chance it. Mildly building a 89sc but not ready yet. Annys stock and goes to shows, so would rather not damage it yet any how. Besides eveyone knows what a stock auto 90 can do, LOL

First I've seen this. Sounds awesome! I'm curious about the dyno time. Are these just 2 pulls to see what you put down or is there optional tuning for more money? Is there a wideband or just hp torque and rpm? Also never been to a race track. Don't know if I could make it Friday but Saturday and Sunday sound fun!

We can spend the whole day sat on the dyno if we need it. There will be time for tuning and Dave D will be working that part. I have worked out a good price for that as well and Dave can fill that in for oyu. This is an in ground dyno with all the hook ups so we can check everything as we go. Hope to see you there and let us know what you have in mind.....Rich

Pretty sure I can make it on Saturday for tuning. What time and location?. I'd like see how far off my afr is and possibly get a chip if he thinks I would benefit greatly. Anyone need some stock sc springs? 5.0 a/c compressor and most lines, stock Airbox, sc abs or arc computer?

Is the track fairly friendly to N00b drivers? Not that I am a big N00b but I am far from a professional racer. Is a helmet required for 14 second and up cars?

I would also like someone to take my car down the track once and give me an opinion on the car. It is hard to find anyone who knows these cars really good. Looking for opinions on what could be better..

See you Friday night!
