I've seen in old threads awhile back where CHP set up smog dyno on the streets in the SoCal area, but I've never thought it'll ever come to the Modesto area.

Today(5/23/06) at around noon, I was coming home from school...I took hwy 99 and exit the Tuolumne Blvd exit to get home and I see a bunch of orange cones set up on Tuolumne Blvd. I thought it was road contruction, but I looked closer and I see the ramps laying on the street. I just continued on to my house (which is a block away) and it just popped into my mind that it might be a portable dyno set up by CHP. So, I bust a U-turn and went back to take a look at it...and IT WAS A SMOG DYNO. They haven't started busting people yet, but I'm not sure whether they're aiming for the tuner crowd, beater cars, or both! I pulled out my camera phone and started taking some snap shots and then pulled to the side of the road and got more pictures.

Anyways, I thought I'd give the local supra guys a heads up on this...

You guys know if there's a way to get out of this if you get flagged down to go on the dyno? Any legal issues behind this, etc? I'm sure it ll be beneficial for other members of the forum to know about this.

I took these pics at noon, that area gets crowded at about 3pm-6pm because the main highway is right around the corner and the high school and businesses is less than a mile away.

What annoys me and I wish we could start some kind of movement is how these stupid pigs interupt your day/night with this crap. I see it all the time down here and the traffic just BUILDSSS up and you sit there forever. Who the heck are they to waste your time with this crap. I dont remember signing any papers or reading it when I got my license they have the right to do this. Even if they do it still should be stopped!

Hm, its retarded. If you have a current registration sticker they should not hassle you because you paid your registration fees and obviously smogged the car to get it. FTP in CA. How in the hell would anyone on SF pass that thing? Id better take my chances running or going around it acting stupid like i thought it was a stunt jump for a movie :)

They will probably give you a ticket for a slammed car while busting your ass for smog

Damn, that is hardcore. More reason why I wanted my TT swap as close to smog legal as possible.
