Who hasnt had their car on a Dyno?

Well, I'm starting to feel like a bit of a freak here. It seems I must be one of the (very) few who hasnt had their car on a dyno and/or done a timed 1/4 mile pass.
I'm starting to feel left out :s6:

Anyone else in the same boat? I'd hate to think I was alone.

Re: Who hasnt had their car on a Dyno?

i aint been on a dyno yet
(too embarresed to see my 90rwkw or so )
but i have done a 1/4 run.

i'll most likely be getting some dyno runs at the end of the year if all goes to plan.

Re: Who hasnt had their car on a Dyno?

I havn't been on a dyno or done any 1/4 runs either.

My engine's still pretty close to standard and I don't go on how much power a car has. My car feels nice, looks nice, and is comfy. That's all that matters to me.

I have never had any of my cars on the Dyno, don't know if I ever will, maybe one day, but no plans.

No 1/4 mile times or Dyno here. I will get my ass into gear and get them done as soon as the $$ come in. I will organise a Dyno day for some time in the near futrue.

Re: Who hasnt had their car on a Dyno?

Me!

Mine hasn't been on a dyno nor done a 1/4 mile pass.

The lack of a dyno run is for the same reason as EFFalcon and also I'm scared it might blow up!

As for a 1/4 mile run, well I have no idea how to do a burnout, I'll probably be 2/3 of the way down when I get passed at warp speed by an 8 second Mazda ute, and lastly my brakes will probably catch fire as I try to slow down at the end of it all.

Re: Who hasnt had their car on a Dyno?

I haven't done either, lack of money and a car that wasn't behaving itself stopped me putting it on the 1/4 mile at last years raid, no dyno run either

Re: Who hasnt had their car on a Dyno?

I dont reckon it matters if you havent been on the dyno, just as long as you dont expect too much from the read out.

Dyno's can be soul breaking.

Re: Who hasnt had their car on a Dyno?

Only been on the 1/4. My engine may be stock but it feels quite good having a drag. Hey, at least it's legal!
