Well Saturday just gone we in the North east regional forum had our rolling road day at I & J Macdonald in Lanchester, now I’d like to take this oppourtunity to say that we have around 37 members in our regional group and only four made the turnout!!!, never mind, I have lots of pics of our day below so I’ll try and take you through them.
First of all we all met up at Ikea next to the Metrocentre..
We set off but got slightly lost in Stanley on our way there, consequently we discovered that Heds’ car had a problem, a burst water pipe I believe, after temporarily sorting the problem with a little insulation tape (Supplied by RICHIE) we were on our way again…
We arrived at I&J Macdonald dot on time, ready for the place opening, so I took some pics outside :P …
And God said L.E.T there be NOS
One of the operators at I&J kindly repaired the fault in Heds’ car
Time to start the RR!...
Heds waiting anxiously!
We were then informed that Heds’ car would not be able to take part due to the fact that it was too low, and certain parts were catching on the rollers
Next was my turn!
I got 118BHP @ 88MPH 5308 RPM WITH 129LBS/FT @ 4384 RPM, nice straight torque line!!
Believe he got 115BHP!
Quick pic outside then back inside for Robs turn
Believe Rob got 125.8 BHP!!
Back ouside for some quick pics before we went
Heds’ very cool Nitrous purge kit
A good day was had by all though we were all disappointed Heds car couldn’t show it’s stuff, maybe next time, and hopefully next time we’ll have more cars, custom manifold and high-flow cat booked in for myself 12th March!
