    Default Rolling Road day, Warrington area

    I'm thinking of doing a rolling road day for club members. I did one recently for the NW Saxo and 106 owners and that went down really well.

    25 for three runs with print out of power and torque. It's a Bosch dyno with Dyno-Star software.

    I'm thinking the last weekend in January would work.

    There's a karting track next door if anyone fancies a combined day of entertainment?

    I'd be interested in this; although I won't be in the C2... As its still in bits, like it has been for four years - before Den says anything!

    I'll be using EFI in Runcorn for a dyno run towards the end of the month, so it will be good get a second comparison.

    Four years actually beats my three years getting mine done....

    I see there's a meet at Krusty Kreme or whatever it's called in the afternoon at 2pm, maybe combine the two meets, maybe need to delay the donuts a bit though...

    There's a few takers on the Facebook site too so it will be worth doing it I think, if you guys are still up for it? A couple of my motorsport customers have said they'll bring their cars as well.

    There's usually a few interesting cars in at work too if you're interested in cars other than C2s.

    My turbo C2 will be there, might not be finished with the calibration by next weekend but it will be close enough to do a power run or two I expect, even if they won't be fully representative.

    I'll invite the local 106 and Saxo club, some of them couldn't make the last meet.

    We'll start at 10am on Saturday, the postcode is WA1 1PJ. The dyno is in the alley behind the big indoor karting place called 'TeamSport'. If you google maps the postcode the red pointer is directly over the building I'm in.

    That would be good if you can. :-)

    I've got a reasonably rowdy M3 I can run for entertainment and there may be a Porsche or two here as well. I had a Ferrari here when I did the 106/Saxo meet and that seemed to get a lot of 'oo's' and 'ah's' but that's gone now. Alwena might have their 1400cc rally C2 here and maybe Craig's get bring his Rallycross C2, if he's got it built back up by then. Andy Knowles' Rallycross car won't be finished I don't think.

    Well I've had mine on the dyno this aft to get it in better shape ready for the RR day and all was going well until the clutch decided to start slipping so I've had to rather limit the torque output, which is a bummer as it was going very well until then. :-(

    It will still manage some runs but at reduced torque and power 'till I get a clutch in it, but I might as well put the BE 'box in it while I'm at it.

    Is there anyone bringing some club stickers? Might as well have one on the C2 ready for the mag feature.

    The idea is to do it yourself.... assuming you can fabricate bits and bobs?

    Sadly can't make the meet due to pre-planned hangouts with non-car-friends, but I've got a spare club sticker and I pass through Warrington every day on the way to work. Happy to drop one off

    I bet you pass through slowly with legendary Warrington traffic!

    That would be good if you don't mind? I'm at WA1 1PJ. It's just by Bank Quay station. If you google maps the postcode the pointer is right over the building I'm in, in the alley right behind the karting place. You'll see Porsches outside usually. I get in late, around 10am and usually stay late, 8pm+

    :-)

    The car just needs the front bumper refitting (it was left off to help cooling airflow on the dyno) then we can crack on and get some side by side comparisons done, if we had a stock GT to compare with at least.

    I might just buy a stock GT but then I'd have to sell it again, and there are few things I enjoy less than selling cars.

    I've got the engine data link to the in-car camera to set up yet too but that just means getting a connection to the CAN bus from the ECU, which curiously doesn't find its way to the OBD socket.

    So basically, weather permitting we could get the material for the initial car 'test' feature next week. The car is being featured complete and then the 'how-to' is going to follow over several issues, because there's too much to put in just one issue and we want every detail covered so that it's a step-by-step guide.

    Thanks for your post on FB BTW. :-)

    No problem! I don't think we will be able to make this weekend but thought I'd try get some people interested.

    If you need any stickers dropping off let me know.

    Shame you haven't managed to find a stock GT yet. I noticed on the other thread you mentioned the one outside the bathroom place on Winwick road, I remember seeing that loads, actually looked well looked after too.

    What time are you guys going to be doing these dyno runs until? C2 is off the road getting a new clutch but I would be interested in seeing what my MK2 Golf is running after all the money I have thrown at it haha

    With the low numbers promised from the C2 club I put it open to the 106/Saxo group and it looks like there will be around 14 of those coming, so we'll be here 'till three or four pm at least I expect.

    Mk2 Golf? 18t? I used to map loads of those conversions for Dubsport, when they were still around. About ten years ago now that.

    Haha fair play mate, it started off as a standard Gti 8v but is now mostly made up of a G60 and a 3.0 Vauxhall haha faster than my c2 and keeps up with a friends Focus ST so must be running a fair bit, be interesting to see what it actually is
