Default 2nd Annual Platteville Dyno Day April 30th, 2011

Yep it's that time of the year again............ to see if the upgrades you made pay off in the power department. I was able to set up a time for a dyno day at the new engineering building that has an in floor dyno.

Info:
Date: Saturday April 30th
Time: 10am - 9pm
Location: Platteville ,WI New Engineering building is #25 on this map http://www.uwplatt.edu/contact/images/Campus_Map.jpg
Cost: $30 for 3 pulls on the dyno and additional donations are welcome to help out the teams that are helping out that day.

It should go without saying, but make sure your car is in good working order, since having a catastrophic failure on the dyno would be no good

This year I think I'll open up to 15 cars to run on the dyno, since we now have a better idea of how many cars we get through. I'm possibly going to open it up members on the Vortex depending on the interest from TDIClub members first

15.

Look forward to seeing everyone again and meeting some new people and just to make everyone aware I'm currently in a wheelchair due to diving accident and caused a spinal cord injury. I'm on the road to recovery and hoping to be back behind the wheel asap. For a little more background on my accident http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/ericmurrock/mystory

Feel free to contact me with any questions. It might take a day or two for me to respond, fyi.

Thanks, it's going to be a long road, but I've made quite a bit of progress already and hoping more will come

Is this open for anyone to come in and just check out everyone else's cars? My two TDIs are bone stock, but I wouldn't mind seeing what all you other crazies out there have done to your cars.

You are more than welcome to come by and check things out and see meet some of the other members and their rides.

I'll have to check with my friends to see if they would be willing to cook up some burgers and brats like they did last year.

I'll be there - count me in.

I'll hopefully have some cool things to test out as well



Eric - I read your CaringBridge journal (the whole thing!) and want to wish you the best of luck in your recovery. I can't believe what you've already been through and accomplished. You have unbelievable determination and support from friends and family that most people could only dream of. Keep up the steady progress.

I can hardly wait to see what you have up your sleeve Added to the list

Wow! to be honest I haven't read what my mom has posted on CaringBridge, but then again as you can imagine the first couple of weeks I didn't do much of anything so I'm very impressed you read it all!

I've been very blessed with the support and encouragement I've received from family and friends, which I'm very grateful for. With their support and my determination I'm hoping for a full recovery, but it will take time, so I'm learning patience lol

Not sure I'll have any performance upgrades done since the dyno day last year Hopefully the upgrades get back on track

I think I might try to make it out for this. I hope to have my 11mm pump installed by then. Just gotta find time to do it. Either way, i am curious to see what my golf is puttin out these days. I never had it dyno'd.

Thanks Jason. I'm very grateful to have the support and encouragement I get. On a side note a friend of mine will hopefully be bringing his 06.5 to for some maintenance and issues he's having.

What wheels did you pick up? Mercedes comes to mind.........

I know Brian was planning on coming last year, but had headlight issues......... , so hopefully he can make it this year.

I'll post this in the vortex in a couple of weeks, since I figured I would give TDICub members the 1st chance to sign up.

Contact Darkhorse - I'm sure he would up for a little dyno action.

I actually picked up 2 sets of wheels...

first 18" porsche wheels with improper tires so a terrible test fit....



second i picked up a set of AMG Aero II wheels that need to be refinished due to corrosion under the clear coat, which just means they get to look really good once they go on



this is what mine will likely end up looking like...
