The year has posed many challenges for small businesses around the world. Ours was no exception. We spend a lot of the summer months at shows operating the dyno and promoting the business. Of course all of the shows were cancelled due to the pandemic, so we lost a lot of revenue. Fortunately for us, the dyno is our side hustle so our full time gigs kept us going. We are also fortunate to have the equipment already paid off as of last fall so expenses were at a minimum.
So what did we get up to??
The big project for the year has been the addition of a 40×60 shop. Its been in the works for over a year now, so it was a relief to see it finally closed in at the end of July. Power was switched on at the end of September and garage door in October. We’re now in the process of running lines for air and getting ready to test our hoist, tire machine and balancer. For the winter months we hope to pull the dyno out of the trailer and set it up in the shop.
Another project we’ve just started is the Magnum vs. Charger Hemi Performance Battle. I have a 2006 Charger, and Jason has a 2005 Magnum so we’ve decided to pit them against each other by testing competing parts and see who comes out on top. So far we’ve completed the baseline runs with the Magnum coming out on top. A few battles we have planned are tests on mufflers, cold air intakes and coil packs. Watch the first video here.
Project InfHemi is in need of love. We haven’t had time to run it this season, so we plan on getting it in the shop this fall to have it ready for next season. Our goal is 11s next year. Watch a nitrous run on the dyno here.
