    Thats excelent news Carl. Looks like you have a good one. My only advice now is use the same rolling road each time you do mods.

    This will give you an accurate increase in your mods.

    Where in Leicester are you?

    but I would have thought it would be better than going to different Rolling roads each time?

    Where is MAHA?

    I was thnking the very same thing :shock:

    i'd be expecting no more than a 20% loss with 15/18% being a realistic figure.

    Forgive the ignorance, but does sticking a car on a rolling road knacker the hell out of it?

    Nope, subjects the car to no more loading than what it gets on the road. The only ill effect is heat, but if all your doing is a power run its perfectly fine.

    The AmD rolling road is also manufactured by MAHA along with all the ramps.
