Lightbulb FPV Open Day Suggestions

I thought I'd suggest that next year at the FPV day AP would like to see a dyno comp. Given we are now finally reaching the levels of Holden we should use every opportunity to show Ford is back, and Holden/HSV are due for a thorough crushing.

This should be easy to organise (Tony Toni Tone whinces) with a mobile dyno and seating in line with comps at Summernats. Hell, AP might even wash his car for that one!

I agree Pete, im sure it would pull a crowd, but I think the main problem would be getting Holden/HSV to come along to the show!

You should be able to find Private owners willing to use their car if HSV (likely) dont want to participate.

Um, I meant we dyno the Fords. No Holdens allowed. The idea was to invoke the performance and power of Ford into attendees at the day.

I personally don't think Holden/HSV cars should be at the day. Not because I don't like them, rather because it is a Ford performance car day solely and wholly!
