    Are your seats on the standard rails at the moment? If you've caging it, you might want to look into getting the seats a bit lower to keep you away from the bars
    cheers mate will definatly give them a go.
    yeah my seats are on standard rails but i will be looking to mount them directly to the floor, i want a custom cage fitted so it cant be seen from the outside, so running along a pillars and criss crossing along the back below the window line.

    your right its at its limit but backdraft motorsport assured me that the 20v can handle that much power and ive had the kit on for 18 months and she still purrs like a kitten.

    I haven't been to any meets for ages, they're pretty scarce round this way but send me some details of your next one and I'll pop along hopefully .

    its the ary engine 180bhp the kit on it is the BDM325 so it should be around 325bhp but they rolling roaded an identical kit on a 180bhp golf and it came up at 357bhp

    Surrey Rolling Road

    Pretty aptly named place considering your question. It's a 4wd dyno dynamics rolling road.

    That said, you don't need a 4wd RR for a haldex car, you can just pull the fuse instead and run fwd

    What a load of cobblers!!! Haldex is a clutch... pull the fuse and it just switches off... no drive to the rear or owt... the only real problem tbh honest is the DD dyno... they don't do coast down losses and use preset parameters to 'calculate' flywheel power which seems to throw a spanner in the works plus they don't load the rollers right and the runs are over in very quickly which affects the power output as the ECU's are load based and the DD rollers don't appear to load the car enough which can affect the power output...

    I am looking at organising a dyno day sometime next month at Badger 5 if I can get enough interest...

    I'd quite fancy another RR day Paul. Might see if I can convince the old man to bring the the track car up. I'd love to see what it's putting out.

    Sorry for going off topic Don!

    Yarp... suggest no one else mentions the dyno day on Don's thread... Nick said it once but I think he got away with it (Fawlty Towers tenuous reference )

    no that's the right way round mate. or at least it's the same as standard orientation. and the piston can't be forced open by boost pressure, as it's acting on the side of the piston not the bottom

    Actually... Split-aRses are plumbed the opposite way to normal (actual) DV's... best bet is to re-plumb it in the bin and get a 007p instead ;P
