    Dyno Day

    Anyone planning a Dyno day for the new year? It would be good to have another one.

    I'll organise one if the interest is there. Although Shipton under Wychwood isn't a great location for everyone but the dyno is able to cater for 2wd/4wd upto 750hp per axle (ok for colin then!).

    850 tdi - sorely missed.

    Postcode for the one I'd organise is OX7 6BQ. I think, but would have to check, it's 35 for a couple of power runs + your print outs etc. But it would need min 10 cars.

    We both know the answer to that Adrian.
    Would you go?
    I've been saying for some time about a dyno day in my local rolling road.
    My problem is time to organise between work & nappy changes but definitely something I will do in the future.

    I would be interested, but I am down in the deep depths of the SW, so location would be the major factor!

    "He".... I am still here Adrian.

    I could organise one, however I wanted to make sure no one else has organised one to avoid a clash, or, too many rolling road events leading to the 'I went to the last one in (insert month) so I don't think I'll bother with this one', situation.

    I can easily organise one in south Wales, I'm not central like in the midlands or anywhere so I don't know many places other than HLM and therefore no idea what their reputation is like.

    The last Dyno centre I used was an AWD one in Llanelli (near Swansea for those of you who failed Geography at school ). The guy was absolutely brilliant, very nice chap and as I say, can accommodate AWD cars. I could contact him and organise something if people fancy a trip to south Wales.

    I'm quite happy to organise a Dyno day for people; despite my chequered reputation on here I'm not the 'also ran' people make me out to be.

    Now, who could make south Wales and when's the best time?

    What about somewhere in Wiltshire? So people could travel from surrounding areas

    This place hires the dyno out and is cheap 20+ for 10 plus cars or 25+ for 5-10, with the option of half and full day hiring.

    I'm not a dyno addict someone will have to check the facilities etc

    I can ask the question of the place where i got my Audi Miltek from.

    http://www.viezu.com

    They had a 4WD rolling road and prices were 30 for 2WD and 40 for 4WD.

    Great service and refreshments and its pretty central to everyone

    Viezu Technologies Ltd
    31 Bidavon Industrial Estate
    Waterloo Road
    Bidford on Avon
    Warwickshire
    B50 4JN

    They offer lots of advice and services from, Tyres exhaust and onsite ECU mapping.

    (no im not a salesman)

    Now you know how to use the gear positions/modes on your auto, maybe you should take that so you can get a more accurate reading.

    If it's on a Saturday, then I could be tempted to come down to this end of Jan onwards. After the uncertainty on the results at the Volvo v Saab day that we had, I'd like to run the R again.
