Aldon2018_3rd_Feb_Banner.png

It's time to see if all your engine mods have worked, see how much BHP/Torque you've gained or lost !!

 

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 10:00

 

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 £ 15 for Club members & £ 25 for Non members. 

 

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 !

Not sure I'm going to make it. Cylinder 4 is misfiring since damp Tuesday night. I can confidently say I'm 25% down on power. :x

A big thanks to those who attended this morning, and those who put their cars on the rollers, I'll get some pictures up later and big thanks once again to @jonPDpolo for organising it with Aldon.

 

We will look into the possibility of doing this in the summer months, if we can sort some dates with Aldon, however the summer is the busiest time of the year for the Aldon guys with all the race/rally cars they setup, so we might struggle to find a suitable weekend

The white bready was standard 1 litre

 

Ross' yellow mk1 is a G40 Turbo

 

The blue saloon was an AFH conversion

 

Ceri's mk2 (E reg) was standard mk2 engine

 

Si Octavia was mostly stock, EGR removed iirc

 

Scotts mk9 GTi was non res exhaust, induction kit and tuning box

 

The J plate G was mostly standard apart from some porting and de-wedged throttle body (used daily as well!)

Mine was the white bready. Its a 1 litre but isnt standard. I built the engine for the CP track day back in october. (Look in that thread for pics)

 

Its a standard AAU bottom end. Rerung.

With an HZ head (bigger valves and ports than the AAU) that I lightly ported and polished. 

An AEE 1.6 camshaft 

And a homemade 4-2-1 exhaust built to suit the 1.6 camshaft.

And a powerflow exhaust that i found at a local breakers. 

 

It was running bike carbs for the trackday but took them off as they didnt like starting in the morning when the cold weather when winter kicked in. So ran on the dyno with the standard pierburg 1B.

Cool, i like custom bulids borrowed from different cars

 

Any chance of people posting their printouts so we can see some curves, peak power and peak performance live at different houses

Yeah it was nearly undrivable on the standard jetting lol. Went from a 105 to a 122 main. The 122 is a little rich according to the wideband. About 13.5:1 when cruising. On the dyno it sat at a nice constant 11:1. But a dont think the accelerator pump is pumping enough as there is a massive lean flat spot when accelerating out of a corner for example. Its ok from a standing start though.

      The Polo Social 2018


       
      The Polo Social, What is it?
      The Polo Social is a social event held on 29th JUNE to 1st JULY 2018 that is put on by Club Polo which is open to all VW Polo owners from any Club. So if you are part of a local club bring everyone down and grab a spot in the field.
      This year we are accepting bookings from the Thursday night until the Monday morning.

      What to Expect?
      A relaxed event where you can catch up with other members, see their cars and meet new people from the club. Expect a big club meet which lasts the weekend with some beers and BBQs!

      Whats going on?
      Details are yet to be finalised but plans are for the club BBQ on the Saturday night, Show and Shine on the Sunday. We are looking to have some things going Saturday day, we have booked a double length inflatable assault course this year.

      Where is it?
      The event is held at Kelham Hall & Country Park, Kelham NG23 5QX
      This is the second year we've held it at Kelham and we're returning after a successful 2017 social show.

      What do you need?
      If you are camping then you need the general camping gear of tent, sleeping bag, etc. If you want to clean your car up for the show and shine on the Sunday there is a cold water supply so bring your bucket and cleaning gear. Also bring some money.

      How much does it cost and how to book?
      A pitch is for 1 car & tent for up to 2 adults & 4 children
      if you have extra adults/cars there is a £5/night charge per person/car, this will be collected on arrival.
       
      Tickets and prices  Tickets can now be booked via the club shop  https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/store/category/8-the-polo-social-2018/  The price is £21/Night Paid up members will receive a discount on checkout  The discount will end 10 days prior to the start of the event      NOTE: REMEMBER TO RSVP

      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.
