I've fitted a 32tlm Weber carb from a 957cc Ford fiesta to my 1043cc early mech head polo and it seems to be running lean no matter how much I adjust the mixture screw so was wondering if anyone has any advice or could reccomend a rolling road that stocks jets ect to suit Weber 32tlm in the north east preferably Tyne and wear aera as I dont really want to make any long journeys while the mixture isn't right although the car does seem to be starting and driving fine, or as good as the old solex on perished rubber flange did if not slightly better
It's time to see if all your engine mods have worked, see how much BHP/Torque you've gained or lost !! Due to popular demand, we've moved from our traditional end of January/start of February date to Saturday 6th April (so no excuses not to come because its cold or dark 😛 )
If you've not been before? It's a great way to catch-up with members new & old. Aim to get there by 08:30 onwards with the runs starting around 9/9.30
Your car will be secured to the rolling road and one of the Aldon staff will run it up to find the max power, you'll then get a print-out of the Max BHP & Torque, all for £ 20 for Club members & £ 25 for Non members (dependent on numbers, the more people we get the better, else it'll be £25 for members and £30 for non members if we don't get the attendence)
There is normally hot food available, bacon butties etc and when all runs are finished we retire to a local pub.
If you want to see what you've got under your right foot, put your names down below ( copy & paste ) Priority will be given to Club members with Polo's !
For a bit more information on Aldon Automotive, please click the link (they are very good at setting up carbs and if you speak nicely to the guys they'll help you tweak them (depending on how much tweaking it may incur an extra charge)
After the poor turnout this weekend at the rolling road day, we are looking to get feedback on why that was the case?
Basically we ran just 7 cars this year where as previous years have usually seen almost double that if not more. Plus those who usually turn up just to meet up with friends and chew the fat.
So is there anything we can do to get more of you to turn up? Or is a rolling road morning/day something that people just aren't interested in any more?
There are a few things we can do as a club to change the day up a bit.
We could always have it later in the year for example, if most people struggled do to weather, project progress or just purely financial reasons.
We could turn the day into more of a weekend event, maybe a sort of pre Polo Social idea where we camp over night somewhere close by.
These are just ideas we have run amongst the staff so far. But please give us your thoughts.
Also remember a rolling road run isn't just about peak power figures, although that's what everyone brags about. A rolling road graph is very useful for seeing how your car produces its power over the RPM range, for analysing AFR figures during a power run and seeing where improvements are needed to improve driveability not just getting more peak power. Plus the guys at Aldon Automotive are very knowledgeable, based on the run they will be able to give you advise on how they think you could improve the figures.
Anyway, we would like to hear your feedback on the matter and try and get more of you involved for next year.
