    Can you guys help me with a few questions.
    I would like to get my car on a rolling road i just need to see the figures that the remap has given me,I thought i could live without knowing but its got the better of me in the end.

    Can anybody recomend a good rolling road in East yorkshire and a rough price that i should expect to pay.

    thanks simon.

    You will never know "what she is kicking out" by putting it on a rolling road as they are all different and at the end of the day your final figure is a guestimate based on transmission loss, the only real way to measure the pwer is engine out and on a bench test .... I was happy with the performance of my mapped vxr without needing figures for the pub, rolling roading it will just lead you down a rocky road chasing pointless figures !!

    Yeah but your car might only make 285 on the rollers.

    As for the 300 badge...bit lame really but if you must I'm sure the pick and mix at Woolies has some sweeties you can mould into shape
