Tyrepower North Melbourne :: Dyno day

s15 red and dyno crowd
Chasers Motorworks have been building performance cars for over
10 years now, so it was the perfect location for a dyno day.
Tyrepower North Melbourne put on the whole show and it went off without a hitch. For once Melbourne provided stable weather, so the crowd turned up, the BBQ was turned on and there were plenty of cars at the ready.

180sx ce28n wheels
There is nothing better than a set of Work wheels. They always make a car stand out and look the part, especially these Emotion xd9 wheels.
2jz engine
The Nissan killer! What happened Toyota? Why haven’t you made a new tuner motor that compares to the 2jz?!
Mitsubishi evo 9
Fap! Another set of jaw dropping wheels that suit this Evo like a bawse.
toyota camry lookin gangsta
This would have to be the best looking Camry in Victoria, VIP inspired and hella cool.
polo with porsche wheels
This Polo has style! Noted by many as the most unique car on the day, thanks to a set of Ronal Turbo wheels.
subaru boxer engine black and white
One of the many boxer engines making is mark.
dyno sheet
The number speaks for itself! That’s right, its a Nissan!
evo 9 silver
Another set of wheels taking the scene by storm, Rays TE37SL’s! These wheels look good on nearly anything!
Combinen with this tough as nails Evo and you’ve got a winning combo.
bmw m series
It’s these little details that speak volumes.
rx3 rotor
We heard this beast before it even arrived. Soon it had a welcoming crowd assembled. Want more? See this car in action on the dyno >Video
rx3 rotor
Yes that is steam you are seeing! The car was ok, it was only the turbo beanie letting off a bit of heat.
nissan s14 on rays wheels
You don’t see too many s14’s around the streets these days and it is a shame because the aggressive front end on the series 2 is pretty damn nice.
mitsubishi evo 10 white
A lonely Evo 10!
honda type r
It was good to see an intresting mix of cars during the day, Honda, BMW and Subaru all made an appearance.
nissan r34
Vu’s legendary R34 GT-R, eases off the dyno with millimetre precision.
Crx or Wrx? That is the question!
bmw's in a line
With all these bonnets open, this line-up looks almost like a car dealership.
sti rex
Black and white, black and white (I think that’s how that song went…) Great contrasting wheels on this very clean STI WRX.
sti rex
From one Rex to another, I’m liking the dark evil look on this one.
dyno crowd
It was packed! Consequently I didn’t get many photos of the cars on the rollers.
chasers workshop
What is a workshop without a skyline on a hoist?
engine on tyre
There were plenty of goodies hiding around the workshop!
A Golf R pulled 181kw, one of the biggest numbers for a ‘Euro’ on the day.
nissan r32 silver wide kit
Nissan ‘more door’ R32 sporting a mix and match body kit.
Nissan 370Z, with some nice custom touches and a great colour scheme.
rx3 rotary crowd, audience
With a large crowd and almost 80 cars involved, Tyrepower North Melbourne and Chasers Motorworks put on a awesome display of cars and horsepower.
Heaps of people turned up and showed off some of Victoria’s finest street and jdm cars. The scene is definitely growing and it is great to see so many newly modified cars, see results below!
Thanks for reading,
