March 29th VA / MBCA DIY and Tech Session. Dyno runs!

$55 for a Dyno pull, the place is ours, so we will not have to deal with the masses.

Cool, I'm not a member, nor will my Benz probably be up and running but I still might come out to meet people (like you, if you'll be there).

I have a feeling my car will need a full tuneup etc etc before making the trip...might drive the 914 though.

What goes on at these, John? I've seen them mentioned before, but never really knew what the agenda was.

I've only been the the Porsche Club events...but basically you get the run of their shop/lifts to do any projects on your car you need to. Just bring the parts and probably tools and you can use their lifts etc...and do a dyno pull for a few bucks.

Wow, your SEC looks great, too bad I couldn't make it out there and finally meet you.
