Title: Rolling Road Day - South East - May 14th or 21st, which would people prefer...
Post by: 595girlie on January 15, 2016, 12:32:16 PM
Postponing till May to try and get more numbers.

Would the 14th or 21st be better for people??

******************************

Hi all,

Just as a feeler, would anyone be interested in a Dyno Shootout day at all?

It would be at Hayes engineering in Erith, Kent, and 40 for a run with 2 printouts (usually BHP/Torque and BHP/AFR).  Bobs wife usually puts on a sandwich lunch spread with tea/coffee, etc as well.

It would be on a Saturday and wed need a minimum of at least 10 cars I think.  Ive not spoken to Bob yet about dates as wanted to see what interest there was first.

For info:

Whod be interested?

Clare

It's always handy to get a 'before' run if you intend to modify the car, as long as you take it back to the same rollers afterwards as every RR can differ.

I took mine to Hayes as standard, then again after my first remap, so want to take it back now it has the hybrid turbo fitted.

I would come but only for the social side of it, coz I already got a dyno with my remap

No harm in getting a run done from some different rollers Paul.

Any idea of possible dates Clare?

I've emailed Bob to see what dates he has but am thinking late Feb/early March time.

Show some respect, Colin is not your personal assistant.. You have to remember that he is not getting paid anything to sort of all of these events so he shouldn't have to put up with spoiled children thinking if they play up that mummy or daddy will let them do what they want. That may work in your home but remember you are not at home here...

Next time maybe ;)

Ah, that is a shame Will.  Would have been good to see yours on the rollers.

We need minimum of 10 for this to happen, and would be interesting to see some of those big turbo boys run...

Right, so I've spoken to Bob and as we only have 7 names he says best to postpone.

So, new dates are either 14th or 21st May.  Which do people prefer and we'll go for one of those.

I'll see if I can add poll to 1st post.

Sorry guys, I'd given up on this as there just wasn't enough interest.  I need at least 15 cars as people will always drop out, and I think the max we had was about 7 or 8.  If enough people commit I will arrange, but we need quite a few more.  Sorry.  :(

That's a shame but it is so difficult to get anything organised. Thanks for trying though.

We need to try and sort a regular meet in Kent somewhere? Definitely seems more interest in regular meets up north
