S2K INTER CLUB DYNO DAY + VIDEO
7 March 2015 | Words & photos: RaceMasteR J | Venue: 1st Performance,
When last was I at a dyno
day?! Wow, it’s been too long! It was welcomed news to hear
that Club S2K were going to host an inter club dyno day at 1st
Performance (old Ferroli) on the 7th of March. I always like going
to events that are hosted at new venues because we all need a
change of scenery some time. Dyno days in Cape Town go hand in
hand with Dyno Tech in Brackenfell, but who knows, this might
be the new hot spot for hosting dyno days now?
1St Performance, which is run by the more popularly known Pro-Fit
guys, is ideally situated right at the main entrance to Killarney
Raceway. There’s ample space for parking and being at the
track is always great, even if there’s no cars racing around
it. Today however there were bikes flying around at an open bike
track day which became a bit too much for me having to listen
to them red line up the back straight for hours on end.
Getting back to 4 wheels and the dyno day, I think it was a great
move on Club S2K’s side to invite 2 more clubs. The Toyota
86 and the Honda Type R owners club. Although there weren’t
anywhere near as many the amount of S2000’s, it was nice
to see some variety on the rollers every once in a while.
Chatting to Ernest and Jason we all agreed that dyno days are
one big “private parts” measuring contest. And with
the S2K club they all pretty much measure in around the 160kW-170kW
Except for one special person by the name of Morne in his long
time coming S2000. Morne ran the turbo charged red devil on the
rollers and spat out a crazy figure of 477kW’s!
I wouldn’t want to pull up next to Morne at the urinals,
I mean traffic lights!
Starting at about 2PM the event was a great place to hang out
on a Saturday afternoon with friends and like minded people. Me
and Jason even got to take Ernie’s S2000 for a spin, thanks
E, we really enjoyed it, but like Jason said, you need to have
that noise checked out after about 245km/h... hahahaha!
So this supercharged 86 looks so damn pretty!
As exciting as Morne’s turbo S2000 was, this car took top
honours in my books. Shaun Zurich’s Honda Ballade is the
definition of a sleeper car! Just a set of wheels and a front
scoop, you would never be able to tell what lies under the bonnet.
Normally aspirated and running on pump fuel, Shaun kicked out
213kW’s! This car was on our Drag List recently with a high
12 second run. Impressive! Watch the video and listen to this
In racing terms Wade’s car is more impressive if you think
about it. Wade recently ran a 12.7 second quarter mile in his
EG Civic yet he only makes 177kW’s. I guess it’s how
you put your power down that matters. Wade, I hope to see you
on the Drag List
With almost 50 cars lining up to have a go on the rollers, the
event ran into the late evening. With food readily available to
purchase and music pumping away courtesy of DJ Alan, it was a
great vibe to experience. So, when’s the next one guys?
