Not sure yet I don't think, however the difference is probably more than a membership fee

I really want to do this but never done a rolling road before. I want to see how close the manufacturers figures are to reality. Any advice about when you have done one, so I can take the plunge?

What are you concerns or what'd you like to know?

You pay them money, then they'll put your car on the rolling road.

For a FWD car they'll drive forwards into it, then drop the bridge between the two rollers so the cars tyres are just sat on the rollers, slowly drive the car which then centralises it on them, they'll then chock the rear wheels in place, and strap the car down.

They then need to set up a few things on the computer, such as the graph scale based on what power you're expecting to make, and tell it what engine RPM the car is doing at a given roller speed. Generally a manual car they'll test in 4th gear, so they'll drive it in 4th at say 3000rpm and hold it there, then tel the computer that. So it can calculate the wheel speed against engine RPM,

When it's all setup and ready they'll drive up through the gears to the test gear, then ease off til the cars st around 1500-2000rpm, then start logging, and go wide open throttle until the car pulls up to the rev limiter or the power curve flattens/starts to drop off. They'll then let off the throttle and let the car run back down to 0 wheel speed - this calculates the losses in the drivetrain.

From this they can then calculate your power "at the fly wheel" like actual engine power as opposed to the power produced at the wheels which is where they measure it.

Once they have all that - they'll take your car off and give you a print out graph of your results.

I can feel a bit horrible to watch as your car is in front of you screaming up the to the Rev limiter, but it's not really any worse than what you do on the road anywho!

Hope this helps?

Why? The list never represents what happens on the day anyway and who actually turns up after saying they will depends on many things, such as the weather or how full of shit they are :lol:
