looking into 2007 to schedule..give me an idea what is going to work for the club

09-19-2006, 09:16 PM

We plan to do two events next year at Amazon Tuning. First will be a "Dyno Day" in February, a couple of weeks before the Spring drag day so everyone can get their cars tuned before they go out on the track.

The second will be a car show/dyno day somewhere in the end of May/first of June. I cannot give definites till I get our track dates settled by December but that seems to be an open month for us right now.

Weeks it cannot be:

January - Open for Dyno Day??
February - MGW Drag Day
March - CMP
April - Autofair
May - Talladega Week
June - Mall of Georgia Show
July - Open
August - Parkway Ford Show
September - Autofair/Gingerman
October - Ted Russell Ford Show
November - MGW Drag Day
December - Christmas Holiday

sounds good to me..we are flexible at this time...if you want a Tuning Day in Feb before track day it will have to be limited to 10-12 cars with a reservation for each car to be tuned and scheduled time in a specific order starting early and going late depending on how many cars to be tuned. A Tuning day is different than a Dyno Day and involves more time for each car on the dyno to be tuned..we will need to define between tuning and just dynoing. A dyno day/car show later in the year would work well together..Just schedule us wherever it works best for you and we will build our 2007 schedule around those dates

I will stick this thread so we can come back to it easily and update it for next year's schedule! :thumbsup:

09-27-2006, 03:37 AM
I'll be there..........I'll make my schedule flexible to attend :D

10-19-2006, 08:00 PM
Hey Tony just for planning purposes, do you happen to know which weekend the Feb drag day will be?

10-19-2006, 08:42 PM
I won't know till November 4th, sorry.. :(

10-19-2006, 10:10 PM
oh you know if its an event at Amazon I am there. :thumbsup:

11-08-2006, 11:51 PM
Ok so the Dragday event is Feb. 24th (last Saturday in Feb.), can we go ahead and make a date so that we can put it on the calendar????? :D

11-08-2006, 11:57 PM
We can make the dyno day date for February. I have been thinking about changing the Spring Drag Day to March 24, 2007 as it would most likely be better weather. Last Spring we got rained out and it would be a little warmer at the end of March...

Great idea Tony. February is still Winter here in the mountains and even though the weather may be nicer down at the track, we still need to get there! :thumbsup:

11-09-2006, 08:10 AM
If you'd like us to host the Dyno Day in March, just let me know...we should also be attending the DD down at Amazon :thumbsup:

11-09-2006, 03:54 PM
our schedule is open at this point but if Rick gets his race car done we will be hitting the race circuit..the sooner you can give us a firm date the better

11-11-2006, 09:17 PM
A Feb. dyno day and a March Drag date would work best for me........I've got a few things planned that I'd like to get finished between now and then :D :D

11-12-2006, 08:14 AM

I'll get the definite dates on the Amazon events when the Dragway calls me back.....I'm still waiting for them to return my call. :p

The "Official" date for the SCMC/Amazon Dyno Day is February 24, 2007. I hope we can get some of our GA members to come up while some of the Carolina members go down to Anderson, SC.

This will be an "informal" event and Amazon will be providing a pizza lunch. We will not order any food till we have a head count of who is actually there. This event takes the date of the Spring Drag Day and this is a good time to get your car up on the dyno to see what your winter mods have done for you.

Normally I do an annual Columbia SC meet but this will take the place of that.
(I missed this year's meet due to my hectic schedule.)

If you plan to attend or if you have any ideas about what you would like to have at the event, please post them here, thanks.

If I don't try to break my ankle again I will be there for the Dyno and Show day. I want to check out how much Anderson has changed since I lived there. I also want to check out Amazon's shop. Sounds like a good time I hope many people will attend! :thumbsup:

11-28-2006, 08:13 PM
Ill be there. This will be my first event with the club since i joined a month ago. I know this may sound crazy to some of you but i've never been apart of a club but how much does this usually run you per person? Thanks:thumbsup:

I'll be down to watch only...if that's ok?

01-30-2007, 09:37 PM
OKay y'all....

Linn and I spoke on the phone today and we want to add a little more to this event so what can we do to make this more interesting and get a bigger crowd of people to come out?

This will not be a show but Linn suggested "gift certificates" for different classes like:

Long Distance traveled to the event
Highest Horsepower
Lowest Horsepower

What are your thoughts? Ideas for different categories??

Here's what Amazon will be doing...

Gift Certificates

Here's what SCMC can do...

A couple of tees
Dash pads for keys and cell phones

Here's what Data Plates can do...

Personalized Mousepad with your car on it or a set of data plates with your car on it? I might be talked into donating a banner plaque for use at shows if y'all are nice. :)

Give us some ideas and we need you to spread the word a little so we can get as many people as we can out to the event.

BadMoFo can you and nckissfan help us out here?

01-30-2007, 11:03 PM
help, as in what, Tony? I wont be able to make this event. I will update any threads that I have made, around the web.

01-30-2007, 11:19 PM
Help as in Internet Advertising! :thumbsup:

01-31-2007, 06:39 AM
hey I am a web junkie so I will crusie the sites I am on and see whats needs updating and what needs added, anything to help out the SCMC and Amazon. :thumbsup:

nckissfan let me know what sites you have posted on so we can post in your threads and when I am done I will do the same. its like when people see a line forming they want to get in so they can see what is going on. :thumbsup:

01-31-2007, 10:09 AM

How about making one for highest blown and lowest blown rwhp; highest na and lowest na rwhp? Plus the long distance award. It makes five at least! ;) :D

02-01-2007, 12:49 PM
ok out doing a little postwhoring, some of these places already had the event listed but just letting you know where I have seen it at including places that I posted about it.


thats all I could get to before I have to head into work. if anyone knows of more sites let me know! :thumbsup:

02-04-2007, 09:38 AM
one more to the list

musclecar-evolution.com :thumbsup:

I wanna say the word is sufficently spread but to help things out you all need to go to some of these and show your interest and support. if no one posts in them then everyone thinks the event is a flop, which we all know its not just from the amount of people we all know are going. but go show your support. :thumbsup:

02-13-2007, 08:55 PM
2 more weeks. :bounce:

02-13-2007, 10:22 PM

Enjoyed being there:bounce: Thanks for asking me to travel with you. I liked the turned heads on the interstate. It must be impressive to travel with a group of snakes:eek: . Looking forward to the next event!:thumbsup:

02-25-2007, 07:09 PM
I'll be doing some event coverage for the website along with several more event photos and an article about Amazon Tuning Solutions. :D

02-25-2007, 07:59 PM
Well family life intruded on my plans. Glad there was a good turnout! I'll be down at CMP Friday afternoon and Saturday Morning to help with registration. I got a room at the Best Western for $62.00. See you then! :thumbsup:

02-25-2007, 09:01 PM
Thanks for all that came, we had a blast. We put Bill's red gt on the rollers but it was breaking up at 4700 rpm. It still made 478hp and 668 tq.


03-06-2007, 12:16 PM
The tuning sounds good--i'll let you know in plenty of time once you make the dates.:mad:
