Dyno Day 1 @ RGM

by Rajiv Hurribunce & Kimesh Naidoo

It was that time of the year again, and to warm up this winter dyno day Rob Green Motorsport collaborated with us to make one of the largest dyno days the club has hosted.  As you have come to expect both teams were up early and started preparations from 7am and were ready to run within the hour. At this part of the morning, being winter, we didn’t expect much…but contrary to that belief, the queue had already made its way down the road outside RGM’s premises. Rob and his team were very accommodating and gave us full usage of their spectacular workshop and offices, and this assisted us to co-ordinate everything as best we could.

On with the good stuff…the people and the cars! Our usual faces were on the scene bright and early. The queue quickly started filling up with some of the best Toyota’s around. The Supra’s and 86’s ran the day for sure – those rear wheel drive hotties really know how to steal the spotlight! The Supra’s were…well…Supra’s. Nuff said really – it’s the one name in motoring circles that, almost 20 years since the last one was produced, still strikes fear in the minds and hearts of racers everywhere. The 86’s are quickly proving to be the new success-story for the Toyota brand. The numbers of these gorgeous cars have been steadily increasing at TTCC events, and this time as well, there was no shortage of 86 eye-candy around. With variety being the spice of life, no two were the same, and some were already sporting quite a detailed list of changes. And one change that should definitely be on the list of any 86 owner seeking more grunt, yet retaining the car’s much raved about balance…was the RGM Supercharger kit.

RGM wowed the crowds with Jacques (the Stiglet) Joubert behind the wheel of their latest creation, the RGM Supercharged 86. The Stiglet piloted passengers around the block explaining the R&D behind their conversion and for them to get a feel of what the car is capable of. Needless to say, it was awesome! The general consensus of those that stepped out of the car afterwards was: “This is what the car should have been like from the factory.” Well, I guess you can only make a good thing better…

Results were pretty good; the 86’s were running strong with the big bunch of MyHonda Forum guys with their fleet of FN2 Type R’s. It was awesome having more JDM fans hooking up with us and made for some good comparisons on the rollers.

Steve and the dyno staff from RGM did an excellent job with the dyno runs, always engaging with the owners, and were always eager to get more and more. Our Supra boys did us proud, throwing out some pretty amazing figures on low boost. Some big power Opel’s from the Speed & Sound Army showed up and did some amazing exhibition runs, wowing the crowd. There were a few eyebrow raisers on the rollers – Walter Perfect’s beautifully-maintained 392kw Astra TS, Hein Griesel’s flawlessly built “brute-Ute” 2JZ Hilux, and also RGM’s own Supercharged 86.

All in all it was a day crammed full of near impeccable arrangements: an excellent host in RGMotorsport; huge support from Speed & Sound Magazine, Ignition TV, the TTCC club members and the public; Pitstop Cafe; and most certainly all the attendees who made this a great event. A great big thank you to everyone that participated, spectated, orientated and associated with us and RGM. We look forward to seeing you all again for the next event.
