Arrow Interest in a DYNO at TDIFest this year??

So I've been on the phone with Chris at Fast Enough Performance - the guys who did the dyno at last year's Fest and at the Lake Mills Fest several years ago. They're willing to bring the dyno up for a day, so I'm gauging interest... I need to respond to him by the end of the week with a final answer.

The idea would be to do a five hour dyno session on Saturday morning in the hotel parking lot and another 4 hour dyno session on Saturday evening at Kart 2 Kart.

Each car will get three (3) consecutive runs on the dyno (no changes in between runs in order to keep the line moving). You can sign up again if you want to do some work on your car and do three more runs (perhaps after chip tuning, for example). We're looking at three runs for $65, two sets of three runs for $110.

Please respond to the poll included in this thread. This is all up in the air at the moment, so prices and times are subject to change.

I would be interested in doing atleast one set of 3 pulls. It would be interesting to see where I sit.

Sounds like fun, even though the only thing that will be impressive about my ALH is its strange lack of smoke.

YES you should.

You'll have to disconnect the exhaust system first - for more awesomeness.

You bet! Another custom creation from Matt Whitbread. And if you blow your engine up, he might make you a trophy out of your exploded parts.

I voted no as I would not be interested personally, but you wanted a response.

There will be some stiff competition if Sprocket brings his B5.5 passat.

If NoJoke or Foukhest make it out, it'll be a duel between them haha.
