Brand new MAHA rolling road coming February!

After months of unreliability we’ve made the decision to remove the decades old analogue rolling road and replace it with a brand new machine. MAHA will be delivering the new machine within the next couple of weeks and we hope to be up and running early February. The new system is state of the art with automatic climatic adjustment for temperature and air pressure. It will measure the engines RPM and with our new gas analyzer can plot and record all of your exhaust gases along side the power and torque. It even measures transmission losses as you slow down. It is a single roller system which means less contact with the tyre for less rolling resistance and less tyre heat, and with no wheel spin can support up to 750bhp. The computer will store all data over time allowing us to compare old data with new, and yes, everyone can get a print out. Our aim is to continue offering support to the classic car and historic racing community by specializing in tuning carburetors. With all that the new machine can offer and with our many years of experience tuning carburetors we can re-establish our position as the number 1 tuners for classic road and historic race engines.

MGB V8 rolling road tune

Chris Rodgerson brought in his very tidy MGB V8 for a rolling road session. The Rover V8 is running on twin SU carburetors and has a mild cam in it. Getting the engine properly tuned has found Chris a decent performance increase from 2500rpm up with a jump of around 30% at 4500rpm.

Mini Turbo and MG Midget racer on the rollers

Today has been a busy day on the rolling road. As well as tuning some of the Goodwood cars we had two customer cars to run. The first was a classic mini running a 1293cc Metro Turbo engine. This was running very lean so by the time we were finished a decent amount of power was found. Tim Butler brought his MG Midget racer down for a tune up also.
