rolling road figures

has anyone put their car onto a rolling road ?

I am fully aware that the 265 figure was an optimistic one back in the day....but am curious to know what sort of values have truly been achieved (in standard form that is)

Re: IRS mounts seem to be the wrong size

Thanks guys for the speedy reply... all those dimensions tally with what I have and yes I can squeeze them in a vice..but I was assuming the design of the mount would rely on not just the shear through the 5/16 bolts but also benefit from a friction resistance When the mounts are squeezed together t...

Re: early screen washer bottle query

Re: New year's day Brooklands

Excellent turn out....good to see it so popular...I had to queue for 10 mins at 08.45, but no big deal....happy for Brooklands to be able to reap the success
Seem to recall 1500 cars was busy 2 years ago so that might mean more than 2,000 today..!
