Guys the priceing for the dyno is incredibly cheap, PM me for pricing. Norris is deffinitly being incredibly generous. This is going to be a great time....Dyno, Free Food, Nice Cars, and Good People. What else could you ask for

BTW those of you who arent familiar with Mike Norris Motorsports he is located in Winter Garden www.mikenorrismotorsports.com

We are out of Clermont(where Hancock park is located) but feel free just to meet us out there.

You know, I have no idea. I've been a customer of his for years, and that's something I never even checked.

I'm thinking no, however.

ellisjuan350,

I need to get with you on the list and if there is a particular order you are going with. Also need to go over a few other things also. Give me a call when you can.

See y'all this weekend.

I got it and responded, thanks.

As an FYI, I have a couple requests to help keep things moving along soothly for everyone.

The cost per car will be $45 for 2 runs and includes AF readout as available. By as available, I mean an easily accessible place to install the AF sensor. If you have dumps at the axle and no accessible sensor bung in the exhaust, you probably will not get an AF reading.

Please be prepared to pay cash and if possible the correct amount. I do have a credit card machine if need be, but this will slow the process down quite a bit having to go into the office and take care of the payment.

I have a preliminary list that was PM'd me and I will have that list on a dry erase board inside the dyno bay. I am guessing we will be trying to keep to the order on the list as best as possible.

If someone wants to switch with another it is up to the folks with Covert to work together to work it out. If you are not present when your name comes up on the list it is up to Covert to decide when you get worked back in.

I will be giving one of my new Norris Motorsports t-shirts to the highest and lowest dynoing car for the day. I am attaching the new artwork here for everyone. For everyone else shirts will be $10 (normally $15).

I will also be doing a drawing after everyone is done and that winner will get their money back for the dyno runs.

Hope this all helps out and I look forward to seeing folks this Saturday :chug:

I signed up on the other forum and will be coming from Casselberry, so prolly taking 436S to 408W to 429N. I heard of a cruise but I haven't stumbled upon the details yet... anyone have a link to the cruise directions?

stealth71
01-30-2009, 10:13 PM
I think the plan is to meet at Hancock Park at 10am and cruise from there to Mike's place.

Hancock Park (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=hancock+park+orlando,+fl&sll=34.068925,-118.332071&sspn=0.007021,0.013947&g=hancock+park&ie=UTF8&t=h&z=11&iwloc=A)

I can meet at 436 and University if you want. Otherwise see you there.

Hey All,

I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thanks for everyone who came out. It was a great day to get together weather wise as well as a great group of folks.

It was a cool variety of cars with Camaros, Mustangs, Miatas, 300's, Chargers, a Corvette and a 350Z (our free dyno winner John :D). Not sure if I missed something else here.

Covert had a nice raffle for everyone and the cookout was great also guys. Big thanks to them for putting it all together.

I could not have gotten it all done without the help of a guy who is like a son to me, Tyler Manion. Works his ass off and we have a good time working together. Thanks man :chug:

As I mentioned to the guys who have LS cars and Scott with the LT and tuning software. If you guys come back for a tune I will credit the dyno fees from the meet towards a tune. Just remind me when you call.

I will also be seeing what can be done tuning wise for the wanting Dodge boys :D

Again, thanks to everyone to making it a great day. Next dyno meet is Feb 21st and there will be info here on LS1 Tech and Corvette Forum.

Thanks to Mike & Tyler for their time and their stand-up act :) Nice to see some old familiar faces in John (last I saw his daughter she was a newborn) & Scott - whose car still looks fantastic for being a 97! Thanks to Randy and Evan for getting me on the list, to the fella working the grill, and to the team who put together the food, drinks, raffle, et al.

My results didn't change from early December which is disappointing if you knew the changes, but hopefully Mike can get it to where it should be for the mods with some tuning.

We have meets every other monday at 8pm....

But if you cant attend them, we normally try to do something in the orlando area every 4-6 weeks or so since alot more people live out that way.
