    Hi guys,

    I have been wanting to get my S3 on a 4WD dyno for some time and have been doing a bit of research to find a suitable dyno relatively near to where I live. I've come across Monster Motorsport (http://www.monstermotorsport.com/) in Loughborough who charge £50+VAT for 3 runs for an individual, but offer discounts for a group.

    If you'd be interested in this, please PM me and I'll get it sorted out. They are open week days and Sat mornings, which would be my preference.

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    If you have a date and an idea of cost, I might be interested for a run.

    Yeah, I guess so.... OK, if it goes ahead, I'm in (as long as I know dates reasonably well in advance...)

    Hi guys, thanks for the interest. Strangely the guy emailed me back this afternoon saying:

    "Unfortunately I believe the 2003 Audi S3 will use the old Haldex 4wd software which Im afraid is not dyno friendly and means we cannot run these on the dyno."

    I was really surprised to read that. I quizzed him on it, but he just confirmed the above. Any suggestions?
