Does the Linuxman garage dyno have capability for all wheel drive cars?

you can disable the awd in the P2 r's by pulling a fuse. It pops a couple messages up on the dash but otherwise doesn't freak out.

Times are disappointing (as usual), but trap speeds are getting there.

The air is getting cool and dense here lately. I don't know how other parts of the country are doing, but this is some good weather for making boost! Get out to your local track while there is still time before winter.

went 12.80 without the bottle yesterday in the s10, the PTC converter really helped the 60' out. Had plans to spray it and go 11's but it got sold yesterday

May not make another run this year, depends on if I get some tuning done before they close for the winter. Worst part, they may not open next year, track has been for sale for a bit.

when the t5 gets out of being rebuilt, I may abscond with the blue car and throw it down the track a couple times if the owner will let me.

I'm in a similar boat. My local track sold and is now closed for good to become warehouses. I really wish I could have found some slicks and actually put down a decent time, but oh well. Maybe I'll just go to Vegas sometime and drop a second off my et for free.

2 Tracks closing, WOW That's terrible news. What is happening lately? Wednesday nights at the track here in Denver have hundreds of people and sponsored by the local police departments. They hope to keep people from racing on the street. With some success I think. It is also used for a NHRA event, so I think ours is safe. But man, small local tracks are always where the fun is.

I wanted to go again before the end of the year, but since I wrecked my 240 I don't think I have anything that can top my best time from the spring...

Do you have a timeslip for that "hybrid" ?? It's a Chevy with a Volvo engine right? That's doing something right....

We used to have a monthly 'race the cops' at the track here, same reasoning, and it worked. Now that developers have their heart set on that land though, sure, let's build houses there instead of maintain a legacy.

I'm going to try and go once more this year on the 10th or 27th for a "turbo" entry.

I got my 240 out of storage and put a new clutch disk in it a week or two ago, a 6 puck this time, so it should be more reliable.

The timeslip was in the truck when it went to the new owner, don't have it anymore. Yeah, it was my s10 that had a stock 350k mile b230ft with ebay turbo & header

When do they shut it down for the winter?

Went to the track today even though it was sprinkling rain. Racing was supposed to start at 11:00am, but started around 1:30pm.

Got two runs, first time spun the tires bad off the line and second time bogged it.

Wennstroma Your times have been recorded.

This has been a pretty solid year for participation. It's good to see the strong interest in the ol Volvs.

Depends on when the rain hits Erik. Looks like they have nights showing thru the end of November with a couple exceptions.

If you can make it early next month I'll try and get Ryan hammered down and give me a hand tweaking mine a bit, see if I can pull it into the 12's.

And tonight's track day was rained and snowed out. I think that might be it for Colorado this year.
