Lot 4j, University of Maryland

Terrapin Motorsports gladly welcomes the return of Modern Muscle Motorsports, who will be providing dyno serivces with their portable Dynojet 224. Bring your big motors, laughing gas, and forced induction, because their dyno can take any amount of horsepower you can put down!

I should really start posting these things when I hear about them. I've know about it for about a month, and I plan on being there and hanging out for a little while. Last year the car show had a really cool turnout. I think it's about $50 for you car to be dyno'ed. Last year they had trouble with the dyno considering that it's not a normal dyno, but I think it was mostly a problem with FWD cars.

I think it'd be really cool if you showed up.

My buddy Scott is coming down so we might decide to head up there is it's nice out. Is this the same car show you went to last year that had the R32 Skyline??? Is so I'll be there :D

That was the spring one, but I'm sure that there will be as good of a showing as last year, there's always some interesting stuff that shows up. Plus the spring one was huge compared to the one before, so hopefully they will keep growing.

Yeah, I heard about it on a local forum. A bunch of those guys are going. I wouldn't mind showing up to take some pics and hang out for a bit. I have no need to spend $50 to dyno my stock engine though hehehe. Although it would be funny to show up a few of the ricers who spent a few grand on their car and are only putting 150 to the wheels hehe

Don't worry there will be a fair shair of them.

YES, that is the Fast and the Furious dude on the side of it. Who puts that on their car? I bet he was like "man check this out!!" to all his friends.
