Hey all, is it true that the 4th of August will be the inaugural four wheel drive dyno day?

Gosh those poor evos and Sti's finally get to see how they compare to some of Nissans finest :)

See you there...hope Robins got his S__t into gear!

The way I look at it I am going to show with my GTST and see what we see. How many times in the past has Performance Car mag said it would be the 4WD dyno day and it is a non-event because of one reason or another. It is just one of those things.

I believe we will see simular numbers as we have always. Figure most of the Evo's mildly tuned to run @ 175kw - 190kw. Subbies will probably be 15-20 kw lower. The normal VR4's (pre 96 models ) should be in the 135kw -150kw range depending on how far in the mods they went.

Considering a Skyline is quite a bit heavier then the above mentioned and the GTS4's are running in the high 13's with tuning the same the power ratios should be the same or slightly lower but lets wait and see.

I was round at TP last Friday (27th) and the extra set of rollers were in place, they looked to be still putting the finishing touches to them. Maybe somebody could give TP a bell and see if they are going to be ready for this Saturday.

Surely a 2WD car could still do a dyno run; you just wouldn't use the second set of rollers??? Or am I missing something? :confused:

The second set of rollers were in place when the last dyno was run.

I believe that there was a problem with the hydrolics that move them backwards and forwards which caused it to be only a 2wd day last time.

What am I saying "only 2wd"... 2wd cars RULE!!!:dfinger:
Have Fun :D
