Just gauging interested in a rolling road day, see if your car is really making the power it should be or better!
Need a minimum of 15 cars and it would be €50 per car and you get a power output print out.
Thinking of the 24th of October or the 7th of November.
It will be held in rathcoole, Dublin.
I'll start the list off!

1. Paul Glennon
2. Mick Glennon
3. Mick Glennon
4.
5.
6.
7.

So who's interested???

No more than giving it beans on the street to see how fast it will go.

Purely power runs and a graph, or advice on the day for gains and set up? Should have the other halfs mini for this. But would be nice to get some advice (for a fee) on how to coax a bit more power out of it.

If you want to know what you have to do to get more power, then get yourself a copy of "Tuning BL's A Series Engine" by David Vizard. (The newest edition is the 3rd edition and is just called "Tuning the A Series Engine")
It was originally written 30 years ago but the latest edition has nearly 500 pages on how to get the most out of your engine.
Still available new but nearly always available second hand on Ebay.
