I was hoping for Vegas ;) :) ;) :angel: :) :) :) :lol:Well we'll have to figure that out when all of the cars can drive!

Not that Im an expert because Im not but from the 3 cars Ive had dynoed on the road and also stand. Id do road. The cars behaved very differently on the road with varying conditions hills, etc.. that a stand dyno cant replicate. Just my .02's However a stand dyno is a great starting point for tuning. Not sure about the differences in bike and car engines though.

Denver is about 200 miles farther for me than for you as far as a middle spot, but might work, total distance from me to you is 2200+ miles lol
