August 15th – Saturday – Regular General Membership Meeting ... Click for details

Jay Bittle is going to have us at his shop – “JBA Speed shop” on Saturday Aug 15th. He is offering to dyno are cars for half price $75 per car as long as we have at least 8-10 cars. NOTE: each car put on the Dyno will need to sign a waiver which means if your engine breaks while on the Dyno, it’s not his fault—this is standard procedure anywhere you have your car put on a Dyno—just want you to be aware. Naturally if he hears something wrong he will abort and take care as this does put the engine thru some stress. So this would be something in addition to our membership meeting—think of it as a SO CAL SAAC dyno shoot out . So I would like to get a raise of hands from you guys who will sign up for this and participate and who won’t. Either way we will have the meeting there-coffee, donuts, go over the upcoming So Cal SAAC car show, etc… and Jay will show us around his great shop. Jay also said if we have enough guys for the Dyno he will cook hot dogs for us SO please RSVP email VP Mark Coulter or text at 619-925-9961. Submit agenda topics to President Eric Ludwig by call text or email (619-719-6073).
