    Northern Rolling Road Meet

    After my general Rolling Road Meet post generated little interest...

    Does anyone fancy a Northern Rolling Road meet? People from the South are more than welcome to come along too, just means you'll have a long drive?

    I'll be ringing two places tomorrow to find out prices. Its likely to be at Well Lane Turbos, Batley near Leeds, OR Prosport in Stockport near Manchester.

    Watch this space!

    Last I heard of Tim @ central ws that they where waiting on planning to be cleared then it would be all go. I'll be speaking with them again later this week on my gearbox so will ask them about it.

    Yea I'm interested, 25 sounds like a bargain. Well Lane is within 2 miles of a couple of Shell Optimax stations

    I could be up for this - as long as it isn't too close to GTi - I need time to fix it inbetween outings!

    Re: Northern Rolling Road Meet

    I'd be interseted in the Well Lane option too, name the date. Do they have a 4 wheel drive rolling road. I Dont fancy the 2 wheel option, too dodgy.

    R88per,

    Good point. Well Lane have both a 4wd and 2wd Rolling Road.

    All,

    As soon as I get 12 firm-ish interested people, I will then get some available dates from Well Lane.

    I'm looking forward to it.

    Al,

    Put my name down please mate.

    I seem to remember the S3's having haldex trouble at the last RR meet I went too. It may be worth checking they will run OK ?

    Re: Northern Rolling Road Meet

    Al,

    I am more or less new to the forum and have recently acquired an s3 which I think may be under-performing???

    I would be quite interested in attending but could you please give me some indication of possible dates and times for the meet?

    Come on people! the more that go means that I get to see chipped cars in action [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img], and convince myself to have it done [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif[/img]. Is anyone going who owns a chipped 1.8T?? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Hi Andy,

    Hope you're well. What've you had done to her? How much faster is she going to be since I had my little ride??!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    I believe you're after an RS6, is this in addition to the RS4? If so you obviously have far too much money. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Cheers,

    Christian

    Re: Northern Rolling Road Meet

    Matt,

    No probs about your mate with the Leon coming along.


    Summary so far: (depending on date of course)

    Defos:

    Me (4wd)
    Matt (2wd)
    FunkyJunky (2wd)
    Silvers3UK (4wd)
    R88per (4wd)
    GolfBygobe (4wd)
    DavidT (4wd)
    Simon (2wd)
    Riz (4wd)

    Maybe's:
    Moresauce (2wd)
    Doug_RS2 (4wd)
    Andiroo (4wd)
    Matts Leon mate? (2wd)
    SteveC? (4wd)
    Drystone? (2wd)

    So that just about gives us 12, excluding Leon, SteveC and Drystone.

    I will ring Well Lane in a bit and get some dates and get answers to some questions, namely:-

    1) print outs, & how much extra for a diag run for Moresauce
    2) S3/TT experience, tying down etc. Smooth readings etc
    3) check if 2wd & 4wd on the same day will cause a problem

    Anything else?

    Re: Northern Rolling Road Meet

    Right.

    The first date available is Sunday 4th of May.

    Now, there is one problem with this date. Granada Men & Motors TV will be there filming rolling road sessions.
    Before you get excited they film cars they have already pre-arranged to take along themselves. This means our "club" session could be disrupted numerous times, whilst Men&Motors do their runs and filming etc. Basically, it could end up being a long day.

    Questions and Answers:

    1) Q: Are diagnostic runs possible?
    A: No. Not on a Sunday

    2) Q: Is 25 the right price?
    A: Yes. Normally it is 35 for 4wd, 25 for 2wd. But because we are a club, it will be 25 for all cars

    3) Q: Are they experienced with S3/TT haldex systems.
    A: Yes. They have chipped numerous S3's and TT's, and have had them on the rolling road on many occasions. Cars are tied down at each corner (if possible). Yes the S3's TT's can be tricky to do, but they've done it a number of times now, and they've achieved good graphs.

    4) Q: How many power runs are done per car?
    A: Firstly, the car is warmed up on the rollers and a couple of gentle runs are performed to make sure the car is mechanically ok, no smoke, nothing leaking etc. They then do a power run. If the power run doesn't result in a good graph, they'll do another one. And they'll do that until a decent power run is done and a good graph produced.

    So that's it. Please provide feedback regarding the above date ASAP.

    Remember we need 12 definite "YES's", no dropping out, otherwise each one of us will end up paying more money.

    Cheers

    AL

    Nice one Doug.

    Come on everyone, please confirm if the 4th is okay (if you haven't already). Otherwise we are in danger of loosing the date.
