    This event is located in North Wilmington Delaware. Just minutes from the PA state line and Minutes from Jersey. Only a couple miles off I95.

    Dyno day April 21'st at R.P.M. Race Proven Motorsports. Many of you know 351Carlo from our site. He was nice enough to show me around the shop today. I needed some MOTUL600 brake fluid and he was the only guy around that had some for me today. (Thanks)

    He reminded me they are having a DYNO day on April 21'st.
    * Plenty of food
    * Great people
    * Dyno pulls for only $50.00 (two pulls)
    * Very knowledgeable and respectful staff to help with the handling of your car
    * clean well lit shop
    * Did I mention food!

    Even if you are not interested in seeing what your car will pull, it is great fun watching the performance of other cars. They had several cars in the shop today that make over 1000 horsepower. They have had as many as 200 cars there in the past, so this should be a great event.

    There are still many of you I have not met yet, I look forward to meeting more Viper owners. what a great opportunity to get out and meet new people!

    I am sure Carlo will chime in here and give us some more information.

    Here is a link to their Facebook page for more information: https://www.facebook.com/events/382592261765229/

    I might be interested in doing this. I'll have to check the calendar. Might be fun just to drive up!

    Yes, please.

    Any way I can get that list? Maybe save you some time? What about the other events I emailed you about, any thoughts on those?

    Thanks Steve!

    Even if you're not interested in strapping your car down, we welcome everyone to come out and just have a good time. There's no cost to eating our food, so just enjoy the day and meet some other enthusiasts.

    The $50 will get you two pulls with A/F. Since I'm a geek, I'll gladly provide the Dynojet run files via Email so you can compare to any prior pulls, or even each other with the free WinPep 7 Dynojet software.

    This event is open to other cars (non-vipers) showing up, correct?

    Correct. I spoke with Carlo at C&C yesterday, and there will be a wide variety of cars there.

    Hey John,

    I can probably give you a ride up/back. We live pretty close.

    Thanks Swexlin! Nice to know I can invite some friends along.

    60% chance for rain on Saturday....

    Mopar Steve: Mother nature apparently does not want any events near you to happen!

    Hopefully the weather forecast will change by then. But 60% chance of rain would effect attendance.

    Ha! I fooled mother nature this weekend and drove 1500 miles round trip to take the Viper to Road Atlanta for the NARRA event. I'll post up some pic's in another thread later today. Weather was awesome.

    Sadly, weather this weekend looks tough. We will see what happens.

    Dyno is an indoor event. Been through this many times with our dyno shows for my truck club.

    If it's raining, I'll just be rockin' the Grand Marquis, since I wasn't planning on dynoing anyway.

    Just spoke with Fran. He said for me to call him on Thursday, and he will make a decision if there will be a rain date possibly a week later.

    This is an indoor event, but if everyone brings their " Grand Marquis" (daily driver) there wont be much of an entertaining event.

    Keep an eye on this thread for updates as the week/weather progresses.

    .....TBC.....

    Agreed. However, my next 3 Saturdays are booked with shows. Steve, call me later in the week if it's on and you need me to help out in any way.

    Thanks for offering! I'll have an idea of when the car pick up will be when I drop the car off later today. :)

    Unfortunately I don't think my car will be back in action yet ... Will need to get it on a dyno when it's running again.

    Well...my car will be in attendance at the dyno day. Whether it's ready or not, we will see. They said they would call me Friday to let me know if they could finish it by the dyno day.

    Latest forecast is for a nice morning, with showers starting late afternoon, so we should get this in. I'll probably be buggin' out by 3 or so to beat the rain home. Don't normally mind getting the snake caught in the rain, just that she's already "relatively" clean for the Hershey show next week.

    See you guys tomorrow!
