West Mids Rolling Road?

Hi all this is my first post in the west mids area so hello.

having done lots of work to my GTV 3.0 V6 i want to get a power output done.
having used them before I rang Aldon Auto in Stourbridge they will do us power outputs for our Alfas for £25 each if there is more than 10 cars willing to go.
only restrictions are the cars have to be Front wheel drive and cant put out more than 250 BHP. not being an optimist i donít think my V6 will be higher than that so this place sounds good.

any people who are interested post your names and if we get enough interest will look at the best date (Prob a Sat Morning) and get it booked.

Scott

Be interesting to see what difference the 'Sport' button makes

Oooo it's going to be close for the GTAs - 240 standard aren't they?

I'd be interested, but I'm concerned that Daisy's going to be seriously sub the quoted figures!!

Yeah they will be unless they are running a standard car.

As for date if there is enough interest i will ring them get some dates and start a poll or something.

I ran sub figures on my old vectra GSI when i last went to Aldon but it led me to an air pipe cracked and i fixed it so was worth it.

Meh, I'd love to get mine done but I won't be allowed either

Bizzare that they're only offering FWD, I had a gathering down there with the MLOC people many years ago when I had my Elise and they did RR's for all of us RWD types....
