For the second year in a row, Dyno Tuning Services once again opened their doors for a massive meet accompanied by an anticipated Honda Dyno Day at their shop in Industrial Park, Phoenix.
The event was sponsored by Vilem’s Truck and Plant Hire and organised by The Honda Club. If you are a JDM or just a Honda Fan you could not have missed this event.
A positive atmosphere backed by truly awesome weather made for a memorable gathering for all attendees. Gates opened at 2PM, however the typical Durban crowds started pulling in at the late hours of the night.
“These Honda Boys do their own thing!”, commented one of the hosts.
The sounds of screaming engines on the dyno went on long past midnight with spectators passing the 300 mark. The mobile entertainment ensured that the crowds were entertained throughout the day and night.
After an amazing turnout there were quite a few winners. The most powerful car on the day was Rajiv’s Honda Civic 2.2-Litre Turbo Charged putting out a whopping 276.5kW.
Grabbing the second spot and most people’s attention was a nifty Ford Escort with a S2000 N/A Engine pushing 222kW which was impressively built by the owner, Pat.
Third position was Shaun with a Honda Civic 2.2-Litre N/A which developed 200.1kW of power.
With 4 classes and lots of prizes up for grabs, Christy and the boys strapped and ran well over 50 cars for the day.
Although it was a Honda Dyno Day, it was good to see other brands come out to show their support, after-all that is what the car scene should be about. Some pretty impressive figures were pushed out for a lot of stock cars.
