August 18 10am – 2pm Dyno Day at Carb Connection, Kirkland
When we lost our old event location, Fairlady Motors in Tacoma, it looked like this exciting event might go away for good. Mark Hurston would have nothing to do with that and found new location in the Totem Lake area – Carb Connection, 13611 NE 126th Pl., Ste. 240, Kirkland, 425-820-1871.
For front-wheel drive classic Minis only on a rolling-road dyno. Each car will be tied down to the dyno and an experienced dyno operator will do a “pull” (or two or three) to get a fairly accurate rating. Though no tuning or adjustments will be made during this Shoot-out, the Mini owner will be able to communicate with the operator any special needs or details. Each person will get a print-out of their Mini’s run(s). Cost for each Mini – $90.
Bragging rights categories – Highest rating for small disp. A-Series Motors. – Highest rating for big disp. A-Series Motors. – Highest rating for alternative cylinder heads or powerplants.
Afterwards for a late lunch? Café Veloce (standard Italian fare), 12514 120th Ave. N.E. in the Totem Lake mall area (need to check const. status). Azteca Family Mexican Restaurant, west side of 405, just behind Wendy’s at corner of N.E. 124th St. and 116th Ave. N.E.
Many thanks to Mark for keeping this event alive and for the effort organizing it. Check back here for more details or contact Mark, 206-501-5011.
