    Default a black astra's rolling road

    iv been looking around the web to find this for you

    all pull your rolling road papers out of the draw and have a look at what you get at the wheel an have a look at what that super astra is getting

    have a look at the page and it shows if you know how to read them it time for them to put there hands up and tell us it not got the power we tell you it has

    you seem to have a problem with andrews power outputs chris the car as i beleive is still being developed and when it is a reliable conversion then im sure the results will be published,im looking forward to seeing results myself but im sure the reliability of such a conversion is at least as important as the BHP output,im sure when the owner of said car is happy with the reuklts then they will be made public and the guesswork will be over

    Wasnt there a thread last week about a Total Vauxhall R/R day, and the Black Astra was R/R'd but no figures were printed for it...

    I think Chris is trying to prove it doesnt produce what its claimed to, But Alex has already proved that it an old R/R graph..

    Those aren't losses, they are before and after figures for the standard Astra with and without a tuning box (CRD2)

    I think the term is "trolling".

    Yep, I knew it was following on from that thread. The one that Bainie started more about remapped and standard VXRs, and Andrew's car was mentioned too.

    And that was my point about the relevance of the thread. What exactly is Chris' point? If he's got an issue with Andrew's claims etc. then he should take it up with him - or post on his Astra site. I just can't see what the relevance is in starting a thread on here basically disputing an Astra's bhp figures when the owner hasn't made any claims on here for starters, and given that it's a Vectra C / Signum site as well. If, and it's just for the sake of argument, he has made some claims of certain figures and not as yet backed them up with graphs etc., well Chris may very well want to take up the 'issue' with Andrew - to which he's perfectly entitled to do so if he so wishes, but it should be either with Andrew directly or on any site where he may have published said figures. I just struggle to see the relevance and reason for starting the thread on here.
