|ROLLING ROAD SERVICES
Our workshop boasts a fully digital 4-wheel drive rolling road
- one of only a few in the country. This invaluable piece of equipment
is used to verifiy a car's performance and help diagnose problems.
Our rolling road has proved extremely popular with regular and
new customers. We also offer some services to non-VW Group high
performance 4-wheel drive vehicles including high performance Japanese
cars such as Nissan Skyline's, Subaru Imprezas and Mitsubishi Lancer
Many car enthusiasts want to "see" how their car is performing
and the benefits of any modifications they have made. A plot obtained
from a rolling road session displays power, torque and boost (turbo
and supercharged cars only) characteristics across the
rev range of the vehicle. Using the information gained, the engine
characteristics and performance can be modified to ensure that it
is running at it's optimum level - this is the best way to see any
improvements or problems when tuning your engine. We aim to ensure
that the results are as accurate as possible so that vehicles can
be reliably tuned and maintained.
By keeping a check on your car's performance you not only help
keep it running at it's best but also at it's most efficient.

You need to ensure that your car is ready to run. i.e. in good mechanical
order and with plenty of fuel. If you are not sure of the car's
mechanical condition you must inform us - we can arrange for any
necessary work to be performed prior to going on the rollers if
Once on the rollers, we will do one preliminary run to ensure the
engine is at it's operating temperature and that everything else is
as it should be, tyre pressures, etc. We will then perform one full
power run and print off the results. We may then carry out one more
run to verify the results if we feel it is necessary.
Any further runs will depend on any other work requested or required.
We always aim to achieve accuracy and repeatability with the rolling
road and are happy to discuss the results with yourself once the
session is complete.
