Alright guys, really want to get my ST rolling roaded and thought i might see if there is anyone on here who also wants to get on the rollers, if so we could make it a meet? I was thinking end of February time?

I'd be up for it...

Do you know any decent RR around the area, we've done them before up in Taunton. Problem is finding a location that will attract enough people to make it worth while.

Christchurch would suit me, but the car wouldn;t be warm by time I got there!

One of the guys is suggesting portsmouth on central south

Not sure, its really difficult to make to central for all, if we do it exeter way then its a massive trip 150 mile trip for me and spike tbh the most central and fair for all would be Taunton? not sure what this place is like though?

After some searching it doesn't look like the rolling road place is still about in Taunton, i'm only happy to go on a dyno dynamics rollers as well there the most accurate you can get, looks like it will be the place in Christchurch then. I will ring them sometime this week and get some info and prices

I'd consider putting mine on the rollers, not sure how much it costs though, as long as its a decent deal. I'd prefer doing it mid-late March though so I have some fresh oil and an RS cooler fitted, doesn't make much odds though as I do bi-annual oil/filter changes anyway!

I've been to tsr and all of us really got bad readings as supposedly the rr needing calibrating, wasn't to keen on booking up with them again

Oh ok fair enough, i have never been there for a rolling road to be honest, i've just driven past it a few times and saw they did Rolling Roads.

We used TSR a year or so back, they took a while to sort the ST and traction control/ABS out, as more used to another make of car.

readings seemed ok tho
