Default Swfl Tuning Event!!!

Long story short I recently picked up a built sti that needs tune work. I had an appointment set up to get tuned at a shop 10 minutes down the road. They fired their tuner 2 weeks before my appointment. The next nearest awd dyno to me is 3 hours away. So it got me thinking. Why not get some people together and split the cost of bringing in a tuner and rent that dyno out for the day? Lucky me, Import Image Racing is local to me. So in collaboration with them and a local racing forum(www.swflracing.com) im organizing a tuning event. Heres the details so far:

DATE: JAN 26th, 2012
LOCATION: Gulf Coast Motorworks
28701 Trails Edge Boulevard, Bonita Springs, FL 34134
TUNER: MIKE BOTTI!!!!!its official now
PRICE PER TUNE: $200 nonrefunable deposit due at least 1 week before event. additional $150 day of the event
DYNO PRICE: 100/hr. time noted when your car pulls on/off the dyno and you pay for your time. price subject to drop after meeting with the owner of the dyno

More details to come. Im going to try and work out food and beverage.

I'll keep everyone updated as I get info. So far, the dyno is a sure thing to rent. I still need to work out parking(this isnt just a dyno shop, they are a registered A/C cobra/Delorean dealer as well as a repair shop for said vehicles) Im scheduling an appointment with the owner soon to work out specifics.

Any questions, feel free to ask. I'll answer to the best of my ability.

WHAT I NEED FROM YOU: A head count. People who WILL be tuned, and people who may WANT to be tuned but are unsure yet. I need a count of cars getting tuned only. This will be an open event, all may come to watch, but theres a limit to how many cars can be tuned in a day.

Thanks, and i hope to see some of you soon.

Nothing against botti but I agree. This company (GCMW) is bad news. It's a shame because they have a beautiful facility but the way they handle customers is totally inexcusable.

Yes the shop has a bad reputation for service. However, the employees will not have anything to do with this event besides spectate. The only people that will touch your car are mike botti, and possibly import image.

The dyno and the facility are both top notch. Its the customer service that blows a big one.

updates to OP.
1. date set for jan 26th on the dyno. shop will be closed on the 27th, but we could maybe do some road tuning that day
2. mike botti WILL be the official tuner. however, we need at least 6 cars for it to be worth his while
3. $200 non refundable deposit per car due at least 1 week before the event. then 150 additional the day of the event. $350 total + your dyno time(import image has personally witnessed mike tune 40+ cars in a weekend, so dyno time should be fairly low)

i still need to confirm the date with the dyno shop, but i should see no problems there. also, since GCMW has such a bad rep for customer service, im looking into maybe doing this at another location in naples, FL(15 minutes away from GCMW) dyno is not assembled yet, but i have been told it will be before the event.

once again, we need 6 cars minimum for this to happen. roll call on who can put the deposit down. ill get payment info soon. as soon as we have 6 "yes's" we can put our deposits in to guarantee the event.

thanks
