    I used to use Well Lane Turbo Centre in Leeds years ago for rolling road days. Bit of a trek for you though, they are near Leeds. There's also G Force in Aylesbury if they are still going. Both have 4wd Rollers.

    1320mini in St Neots have a pretty decent set of 4wd rollers and arent too expensive and you get 3 runs for the money.

    Have to say I'd be looking for somebody with a set of Dyno Dynamics rollers, they are pretty much the industry bench mark.

    Questionable...

    Dynapacks would be the best but then you pay the price...

    Dyno Dynamics have a reputation for giving pretty accurate power figures, and dont seem to overread like most of the **** out there.


    Most american stuff is pretty garbage, giving useless "wheel power" figures, and generally massively overreading.

    My car has been run on three different sets of DD rollers and has recorded results within 3bhp of each other.
