    The calculation figures can be manipulated by dabbing the brakes, fiddling the intake or ambient temperature etc. Rolling roads are notoriously unreliable. That's why you are safer using the ATW figures.

    ATW figures??

    So what we need is other Evo Wheel hp to compare to, give my results some perspective. Anyone know what the power @ the wheel is or should be?

    Sorry thats bad maths.

    So who's up 4 a massive group power run session? could be fun!

    Definitely

    2 factors stopping me though...

    1) Got to fix coupe, which should not be too far off now I know what the problem is.

    2) I'm getting married in Cyprus in July so will be away for two weeks

    (RYM goes off to check Hotel has internet facilities)
