On Saturday the 7th April we held our first Dyno run day of the season in connection with C R Allen and Sons in Peacehaven, East Sussex.
On Your Marks, Get Set…
The Dyno and Monster Map Day started at 8am and, before we were even able to open the lorry, the locals were queuing up in their whips to have them tested to the max by the Dyno Driven team lead by DD head honcho himself, Joe Norris.
There were Bimmers, V-Dubs, Lexus’ and, with our Dyno recording top speeds of 180mph for some of the top performing vehicles, there was plenty of excitement in the air too; not to mention that bitter sweet smell of fuel.
C R Allen and Sons, who specialise in 4x4s and Land Rovers, were established in 1987 by Chris Allen and, although he is still a core part of the business, it has since been taken over by his son, Chris Allen Jnr, who now acts as MD.
Chris Jnr took over the business at around the same time as Joe Norris, acquired Mendall Auto Services in 2002 and, due to the pair’s local history (they went to school there together), they have maintained a close business relationship over the years.
In 2017 Joe purchased Dyno Driven and, with Dyno providing high quality diagnostic services and C R Allen offering tuning to those who want to maximise their car’s performance, it was only a matter of time before the local business veterans joined forces.
The specially planned Dyno and Monster Remap day itself had about as many ups and downs as the Dyno graph itself did! There were staff sicknesses, under-performing vehicles (and what we mean by that is, there were owners who ended up with their tail between there legs), even a power shortage, but nothing could stop the day from pushing on as car after car drove onto the rolling road inside our stylish Dyno Driven lorry to be tested to its limits.
In case you didn’t know Dyno Driven offers a diagnostic service on a mobile rolling road housed within a stylish lorry meaning that it can come to you!
We work at car events, meets and track days. We can offer diagnostic services to the general public at events or teams in need of performance testing or scrutineering ahead of races. We even work with specialist research and development companies who need to test new products.
If you would like to hire Dyno Driven for your event or performance testing requirements, then get in touch.
We can also manage the re-tune if you don’t like what you see on the post run Dyno chart.
