    Midlands Rolling Road Day

    Ok guys and gals, as per our discussion, I'm looking to set up a rolling road day for the Mids Region (others welcome too though).

    Would be held at on a Sunday daytime at: DynoDaze, unit 16, Phoenix Business Park, Brindley Road, Hinckley, LE10 3BY (MAP)

    £30 per car, for 1 calibration run and 2 power runs. Extras such as AFR or boost monitoring can be added for £10 each. However, this is a 2WD dyno, so Haldex cars can run with the haldex unplugged (and see more power), but Torsen cars cant.... sorry.

    Sunday 2nd December 2012 from 10am - 4pm

    For those on Facepoke

    https://www.facebook.com/events/386414951441054/

    So what do we say?

    Usual story, Names below:


    1. Arrkon - Rob, A4 B5 1.8t

    Realistically would need 10 cars to run to make it a goer...

    Hi, im new here and would be up for a rolling road day, i can also make most weekends.
    Wouldnt it make more sense though to find a 4wd dyno? It would surely create more interest? Ive been to 2 different 4wd RR in the midlands myself in the past so they are there.
    I will come either way but if its a 2wd dyno i probably wont go on but would be good to meet everyone.

    I don't think the cold helped, but the few of us that turned up made the most of it.

    Meanwhile, I was freezing my ass off running around a forest shooting targets and destroying the countryside with lead, got covered with mud, soaked, froze, jammed my finger in the ejection port, (only a minor ouchy but painful none the less) and had to pay for the privilege.

    Glad you guys had a great time. I will hopefully be able to make the next one as the season is now over, and Yay me, I came 12th in the UK this year. (18th last year)
