I went to the most recent ISMR dyno day - it was fun. I dont know for other people but i think $50 is a bit much for a dyno run. I say its expensive because there is many others paying for it as well so they would take in a decent amount of money on that day.
Yes i realise in the first post you said you would charge a discounted rate - the above is just my thoughts
Just noticed this post....
Appreciate your thoughts, but bear in mind that most of ISMR's Dyno Day's have been held on a Sunday with 3-4 staff members involved.
So once you factor in labour, I wouldn't be surprised if Indy makes much at all - trust me, I know because I'm the one running them
$50 has always been the going rate for a Dyno Day......and I've been attending and involved with them since 2001.
ISMR charges $55 because it also includes a BBQ lunch with drinks - pretty decent if you ask me
Any other Sydney Tuner will charge you an average of $90 for a power run, any day of the week. The sole purpose of our 'Dyno Days' is to bring customers and like minded individuals together, to share a common interest - cars.
Our days are usually pretty lax with always a great turn out in my opinion. Friends come by to not only put their car on and check that all is in order, but to put a face to the forum name that keeps them company late at night.......or at work during the day
These days bring together people from all walks of life. Personally, I treat them like the above......check my AFR/Boost is OK and kick back and talk shit. And Dyno Days bring out the competitiveness in some, but hey......whatever floats your boat, take it to the track and see how you 'win' etc etc etc...
Besides, Indy is very generous when it comes to Dyno Day's. He'll go above the norm and check certain variables that others won't......and if you ask nicely, you get more than 2-3 power runs.
Hope that has explained why ISMR charges $55 and why we hold them...next one is in June 09!
