ROLLING ROAD FACILITY

We have more than 25 years experience in setting up Carburettors and Ecu's on a Rolling Road or an Engine Dyno. Here at Stanton Motorsports we have covered all types of carburettor, whether it be a Holley on a Chevy V8, a Solex on a Bristol, a webber DCOE on a Jaguar or a Ford Escort, an SU on a Frazer Nash or a Zenith on a Bugatti T35.

We are very focused on drivability on both road cars and race cars and consider this to be equally as important as wide open throttle settings. Our advanced Dynomax control software can simulate true road load, this is a unique feature and helps with the final set up of engine and transmission.

It is not uncommon for us to see supercharged engines running on Methanol; whether it be an MG, Bristol, Ford Escort or an ERA we can get the most out of it. Formula cars are not a problem, we have no ground clearance problems as we run a single 24" diameter roller that lifts the wheels slightly. We have run Shadow F1 with DFV power, F2 with BMW M12 power, and F3 with Nova Motor power.

ECU's mapping is not a problem, we cover MOTEC, MBE and others.

Our current Land-And-Sea Rolling Road produces very accurate and repeatable Horse Power and Torque figures whether it be on an Austin 7 with 20 Hp or a Dodge Viper over 500 Hp. The results are repeatable to within 1Hp on back to back runs and from day to day, or year to year as all our results are real time corrected by our Dynomax software using its own weather station. We can hold 500 rear wheel HP - steady state, and can record over a 1000Hp on a power run.

We have worked hard over the last few years upgrading the cell to make sure exhaust gasses are safely extracted by our custom built ventilation system, and noise is contained within our sound proofed cell.
