EVENT: V&E RIGOLI DYNO DAY

– Words: Jason Hanif. Photos: MJ Digital.

It’s been a while since we’ve covered an event like this on T-LD, so last Sunday we went out to V&E Rigoli for their annual dyno day. For those who aren’t familiar with what that means, it’s an open to the public event where drivers can bring their cars along to the workshop, run them on a rolling road and get a power readout for their setups. With a total of 80 cars on the dyno throughout the day, there was plenty of action for everyone, not to mention a blanket of blue skies, Sunday BBQ, music and high-power builds to admire.

Dyno days of this calibre don’t come around too often, so when we heard the announcement of V&E Rigoli’s, we cleared out our schedules to accommodate! The Rigolis have a reputation for pulling out some of Sydney’s most impressive street registered rides so it’s always worth a look. Power figures on the day ranged from 100kW to 600kW from a wide variety of motors.

Anthony’s ‘PowerTuned’ Evo IX and R34 GT-R feature extremely high quality parts and impressive craftsmanship. The list of modifications and upgrades for each car runs over several pages, and both have the power to back it up. The pair put out 294.9kW and 607.4kW respectively.

The BYP boys, Benny and Jimmy, had a late run on the day in their Evo VIII MR laying down 276.5kW to the rollers.

The plates on the R33 you see below may look familiar, and that’s because it’s not the first Skyline they’ve been seen adorning. Owner of this GTR, Dom, previously owned and modified a red GTS-T. Dom has come back to the R33 platform for a second go around. His recently acquired R33 pushed out 216.5kW.

Koval’s Evo reached 305kW on the day, but it came at a hefty price. The stock motor was pushed beyond its capabilities and blew up on the dyno, but we’re sure the guys at V&E Rigoli will resurrect the 4G63 bigger and better!

Jason Naidoo’s Evo VIII also made an appearance late in the day. We’ve mentioned in earlier posts that this car will be competing in WTAC later in the year. It’s been dubbed a ‘budget build’, but its track times certainly illustrate the capabilities of a well executed plan. The main focus has initially been on handling, but Jason has now got his sights set on power. Stay tuned!

Our previously featured Vertex Ridge S15 was also on display during the day. Since our feature early last month, the car has swapped to a new owner. Ramsen tells us that the new plates aren’t the only new additions on the way, with performance modifications soon to follow along with a new set of Brides.

Khoa’s boosted Mirage performed quite close to his expectations. Suspense built for him throughout the day as his was one of the last cars to run. It’s new turbo setup ran just shy of 100kW with a few teething issues to be ironed out.

Special thanks to the V&E Rigoli crew for hosting the event and to the organisers on the day. In particular KOVAL from the JDMST boards. As usual, the rest of our coverage can be found below and consists of the remainder of cars to run throughout the day. In there is a C63 AMG, turbo S2000, more Lancer Evos, GT-Rs and Hondas plus more. Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments field below!
