    These are the guys just up the road from Severnvalley Motorsport, I believe they have an agreement to use their rollers now they have the new MAHA unit installed.

    Should be lots of high power GTRs running there soon.

    Do they dyno automatics properly i.e. with the right corrections/settings?

    It still amazes me that after, what, 10 years of relentless loyalty to Powerstation they are still unable to do a better deal than 35 quid for 4 minutes on a Dyno :p

    yeah, i guess its just the established place though.

    Will speak to gibbo. may as well put it to a poll on here.

    i quite like going to powerstation but i know its a fair old trek for a lot of more northern members.

    I don't have anything in a state to be run yet, but once the MGB is done I would love to run it over a dyno and see what it's making!

    Possibly bring a Jensen Interceptor along too if it's finished and running OK.

    The CSK needs new plugs/filters/oils the timing checking and a wheel balancing before it goes on a rolling road again.

    It sounds like it will be a great day and if I wasn't already planning a day of MGB work I would have come down, deff interested in future events though! Hope the weather is as good tomorrow as it was today for you.

    Would be nice to attend the next OCuk rolling road day. See what the Cupra is kicking out.

    Only just got back a full on week in London and saw this; Can't do tomorrow, but it's interesting that there's one here. Thanks for the info :)

    Telford dyno day gets my vote, obviously though given how close I am to Telford! Do like powerstation and have used them for work a few times as well as going to the dyno days but somewhere closer suits me for the RR just fine.

    Hope to see you there then :)

    They do indeed. One of the only dynos in the UK to run a 2014 Range Rover Sport.

    Good stuff! There's a burger on the BBQ with your name on it!

    As I found out when I arrived it's a 2 wheel dyno at the minute, the 4 wheel one doesn't turn up for another few months so having an OcUK day there might be a bit limiting until the summer.

    MrSix - Nice to meet you fella, cheers for the BBQ and the Golf smoke out :D!

    20 min drive and £20 suits me better than powerstation. Assume these guys know what they are doing and can monitor for det, AFR and boost. I want to get my DIY engine swap checked out before I start slaying on it.

    What's the 2014 RRS sport comment on about when the next post says it's 2WD only?

    I assume he was referring to maha dynos in general with the RRS comment

    Be good to see photos of the venue as could indeed be a future location for future RR Days. :)
