This past weekend we worked with Nathan Stewart /BLACKLINE INDUSTRIES) on his AWD Chassis Dyno on the final tune-ups.
His awesome tuning abilities were on full display as we ran multiple dyno scenarios, which helped develop an El Mirage, tune up, as well as a Bonneville tune up.
For background, it was Nathan who wired the AEM Infinity EFI and gauge/switch package into the car.  Nathan works really well with everyone who works with me on the car.
 
I’m going to pick up a Diesel PU and he’s also going to tune it on the same AWD Chassis dyno. He’s super easy to work with and knows his Subaru. For me, he’s an easy trailer ride over to Costa Mesa, CA.

Here’s a shot of the Goose Hunter at the May Elmo meet.

And, a video of the last dyno pull.

I hope this is not another attempt of unpaid advertisement. SSS needs $$$$ to help keep LR up and running.  Thank you very much SSS cheers

How about another one....thanks for the great rookie orientation last year  cheers.

I see no problem with members on here making comments, good or bad, about suppliers, vendors, service people, etc. as long as they are not obvious attempts at advertisement and are done in the proper manner.  I've found help in the LSR world from those types of comments on here and have made them myself.  Hopefully Jon will remind any of us if we are overstepping things in doing so,

Haha, it was a bit syrupy.

But really, I see both sides and agree the site needs support. That’s why I make a contribution to Slim every year to help keep it going. 

And yes, I’m looking for a front row seat (in the push truck) as the car making it’s first sanctioned pass at the next Elmo meet.

Is your Diesel PU market any better than mine; here it's clapped out trucks at the wholesale lots?

The Goose Hunter is going to Bonneville!

So, I’m in need of a Pre-Registration if anyone has one they can part with.

Our record at Elmo this year is spotty with Mother Nature knocking us out of the 1st & 3rd race.
However, I’m pleased with the cars progress to date and we’re setting up the chassis for Bonneville with new up-rated springs, alignment, wheel/tires and weight.

For a couple of old guys (and 1 half our age), I think were doing pretty good here.
The car’s looking good and I’m sure she’s looking forward to stretching her legs and making some strong passes.

Dan I like having points on the board, despite them being goose eggs. I know flattery when I see it, that avatar likeness is a remarkable resemblance to me!

Good luck at SW 2014, and leave some scraps.
