Calling all Scotland Members

Ok well on looking to get my car on a rolling road i came up with an idea we could get the north of scotland members together for a rolling road meet. No dates or anything fatomed out will have to look at my rota but there is a rolling road in aberdeen which will cost 30 each for between 11 and 25 cars. Will be calling them tomorrow to see what they say but just want to put feelers out and see if anyone is interested?

Well i have never used them, if you say they are no good, well thats all good, where do you think would be best to go? I am up for travelling to Glasgow, there is B for BMW there, i am open to suggestions but thought it would be good for the scotland members to have a meet.

I have used WP in the past and thought he was ok. I know the evo & scooby boys have had a few rolling road days there.

Why you no like?

Well i have interest from a few of my mates, we just finished a red top conversion on a vectra GSI, so that might be going, also got a rebuilt 2.5 V6 vectra. Also could have a Mk2 golf with racing cams, loads of internal work running on webbers. Thought it might be a good day out, aberdeen is also quite central. North for edin/glas and south for inverness/islands.

Yeah but if you look at Evlove'sRolling road results I bet 80% are autos. It is not the auto it is the rolling road operator that is the prob.

Select 4th gear let it lock ( around 28mph) then floor it, but not to the kick down stage. Job done


Have you got this we programme? Very good. I go offshore on the 4th Nov so Looks like I am out

Ahh it wont upload. PM me your email address and I will send it. It works out you rota 2&2 or 2&3. Very handy
