This morning I was a rolling road virgin....no more though!

Thanks must go to John for organising the bash and to the guys at Star for being very efficient in getting the 25 or so cars on the rollers before dark! There was a good turnout of Imprezas with UK models and imports being represented about evenly. Pity only 2 VIs and turned up, and then one of them (sorry I never got your name!) couldn't go on due to a bulge in one of it's SO2s http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/sad1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

Hats off to John though for the best figures of the day, 334bhp and 297lbs/ft was enough to see of anybody, including a 22B running on 104RON racing fuel(!). Must be in with a shout for the MLR Power Trophy? [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

Me? 'Only' 200bhp and 220lbs/ft, although in my defence the car does need a service. Still a bit down on the 210-220bhp I was expecting [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/sad1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle > the torque figure made nice reading though, with nice smooth curves for both power and torque. I'm sure next time I'll have time to get 1bar and a service in before putting it on the rollers again [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

p.s. - It's a pity that the printout was from the second run, almost everybody's cars made more power on the first run due the intake being cooler, John's VI being a notable exception. I lost 3bhp and 14lbs/ft between the first and second runs, and only have the chart from the second run [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/sad1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle > The guy (Jim?) operating the rr said he knew it was a bit of a bummer, but they needed to get everyone's cars on and off asap to fit 'em all in and printing the chart took about 2 mins, in which time the computer was useless!

At least you seemed have consistent results unlike the rolling road at well lane which apparently is rubbish. Chunky at least it gives me and brother to aim for 200bhp but the 220lbs/ft was a good result.

Chunky, glad you got the pics, my mail server was going a bit radg, as I sent e-mail pics of around 10Meg in total.

It was a good day. The wife has told be to shut up quite a few time so far, although the fermented grapes are making her volume control work!!?? I was well chuffed. Darin called me a little while ago and mentioned one of the roads down south had an Evo at 380BHP!!!???!!! Serious machinery, without question.

Now that Scottish MLR members are making contact, we should see things happening ooop here. Hopefully!
An organised meet of as many as possible should be next, either during the day or at an ale house for a chat. Man on a mission.

Yeah, reading some of the results on here and on the scoobynet bbs I reckon there was summat in the petrol at Well Lane. Some of the figures seemed very high, others just average.

Star seemed to have a grip on what mattered - equal performance - but I did notice that some of their figures went up when folks got in the back. Seems about right though, John's VI was climbing out of the rollers on it's 1st run!

I reckon though that pointing the aux blower directly at my intercooler might have helped - the chap just pointed it at the block... :/ All the Scoobs got it square on the i/c.

We were thinking of going to well lane as well but my brother couldn't make it home in time so we couldn't but it looks like we made the right decision on not going and waiting till the next 1.

The above link should take you to the results of the day, showing figures from one of the runs that was saved.
Pics to follow on the website
