$60 - last time it was in canberra it was $20 per car. Might be cheaper for you guys too pay the petrol to and from Canberra & pay for the dyno.

I'll be there but only as a spectator unless I win lotto by then! hehe

John

How many runs did you guys get, cuz I think it's $60 for 3 runs. I guess Chris will have to confirm this.

The reason why it was so cheap at Ming Automotive, was because they did a special deal with the club, and charged us a flat rate for the day.

They normally charge over $100 for a dyno run.

Most places in Sydney charge $70 - $90 for a dyno run, so paying $55 isnt too bad considering there are prizes involved.

If it's $60 for 3 runs, then I'll be in! You're right, Ming did a special deal, and the $20 was for one run, but they ended up doing two per car anyway!

i went to both dyno days and the won at Ming automotive
was the best hands done.
the staff were very helpful, doing the things we wanted to try,
to get the most power out of everyones cars.
$20 a car was very good value as each car was on the dyno for about 45 mins.
well done canberra guys, you did an outstanding job that day.

as for getting three runs "MR PLOW'' , i'm sure it will be like last year, when all they do is put it on the dyno once and do the multipul runs.

gone to ford forums.com.au.............
