We're putting together a fall Dragon meet with the folks at Celicatech.

The plan is meet on Saturday morning at the parking lot across from the Holiday at the Cedar Bluff exit of I40/75 in west Knoxville.

These meets are a blast as there is great drivng involved and a really good group of people. I highly recommend trying to make it if you can. You'll have a ball.

There's the Holiday Inn and a Sleep Inn at this exit and plenty of places to eat. A lot, if not most, people will roll in on Friday so there will probably be groups heading to the Dragon on Friday as well and there maybe some heading to the pull a part for some scavenging.

They'll be more details posted soon. CMS-GT4 and I put together a meet last fall but we ended up being the only Celica's, no to mention All Tracs, there. Let's try for a better turn out this year.

I might be down for this I live just south of Charlotte and have been wanting to meet up with fellow Alltracers.

I just heard that there might be an awd dyno that just opened up down the street. I will try and verify it for those interested in getting dyno'ed while here.

I'd be very interested. I know my car isn't making big power but I would like to know what it is making.

So how many alltracs are coming? They just got an AWD dyno down the street from my house.
Their site: http://lnsperformance.intuitwebsites.com/index.html

Here are the rates.
$90 3/runs
$100 per/hr (bring your own tuner)
$150 per/hr (if they tune for you)
$800 to rent the dyno for a whole day.

I think from the way it looks over at Celicatech we're looking at maybe five, you, me, vip09, bugs and GT4RCDude. I think the others that say they are coming are fwd. I could be wrong on that though.

How much tuning do you think they could do on a set up like mine, JDM ECU, 3" downpipe and exhaust, manual boost controller? I would like to dyno it though just to see where I'm at currently.

They can not do any tuning unless you had a tuning device. You need either an EMS or some sort of piggy back system like the afc or emanage.

That's what I thought but wasn't sure. I'd still like to do the dyno pull to see where I'm at.

I am not sure if I will or not. It depends how much extra cash I have laying around. I would sort of like to run with different wheel sizes to see if the ratio has an effect on tq like some claim.

We're a little over two months out. Who thinks they'll be coming? Right now it looks like we may have around 10-12 cars or so.

Not looking too good for me right now. Unless a miracle happens, I probably won't make it.

OK, I'm going to start praying for a miracle! :D

I full understand though. I'm in pretty good shape right now. I'm going to try and get my painting done before then and install the 205 intercooler I've got coming. But other than that, I think I'm OK.

Hope things work out though VIP.

Sounds like you have a lot going on with your Mike.

Nothing too serious. Just some things I want to try and get done before the meet. I'm finishing up my kitchen remodel on top of this. With the weather not cooperating with my All Trac projects this summer, I'm running a little behind. I'll be there though! :D
