Fair enough - I didn't like the idea of a massive Dodge on a hydraulic ramp, over the Impreza. That is a lot of faith in that ramp

I cant imagine them getting substancially bigger than they currently are as they have a good customer base and from talking to Chris yesterday he did say they had enough work keeping them going it was just the issue of space at the moment.

He was explaining to us about another rolling road on the same industrial estate. That is 30 years old, 2nd hand and not had an update for over 10 years. Interesting stuff about the concrete rollers and lack of control of a cars engine


torque of the devil does seem appropriate.

they arent slating power eng, they were going to buy it FFS

deano worded it badly, but for you not to go to the best and most professional place because of that really is laughable

They dont do much VAG stuff and mainly deal with mapping standalone ECU's like Omex.

Didn't think I worded it badly - just what the old guy said. The last software update for the rollers was available some 4 to 6 years ago, and then they didn't buy it. So the rollers are out dated.

Don't shoot the messenger
