the rolling road with Peter Burgess|
reports on a session on the rolling road with his MGBGTV8. Gavin
says "they did a fantastic job on the car. It's now producing 150bhp at the
flywheel and is so much smoother to drive. I'd very much recommend a visit."

says "I recently had my V8 Roadster checked out on a local rolling road based
in Slough. The firm is called Novatech, a small business owned and operated by
a father and son team to whom I shall return when the need next arises. 250509

followed the release of V8NOTE400 from Alan Rennie on his rolling road test session
with his V8. Here Gordon Hesketh-Jones describes his experience in checking SU
needles on a rolling road. 010409
road test session with an MGBGTV8
Gordon Hesketh-Jones (Harvest Gold 1904) from Cornwall has clocked up around
400,000 miles using his V8 a great deal in the UK and touring on Mainland Europe.
He decided it was time to check out his carburettor needle choice and settings
on a rolling road. 010409 More

Rennie has always been impressed by the performance of his MGBGTV8, but just recently
had felt things were not quite what they once had been. He had carried out all
the usual checks, but that old sparkle was simply lacking. Was it the timing?
- well with a 123 fully electronic distributor fitted, very unlikely. What about
the leads, or maybe the plugs, even perhaps the carburettors? All checked out,
so what was denying the car its legendary performance? 300109
