Importance of the Rolling Road

  • by

Our existing customers are aware it is not typical for us to mix rolling roads along with tuning solutions. This is due to the fact that our service is mobile , which means that we go to the customer’s workplace or home to modify their car. The roads that roll are massive which is why we are unable to accommodate a road that is rolling into the space of our Volkswagen Transporter. Instead, we provide our customers an accurate estimation of the performance improvements they can expect to see from our remaps. Also, these estimates are built on the results we and our customers have experienced when having a drive with an upgrade. Therefore, there is some an element of truth in our estimate of what the gains will be.

Roads that roll – are they vital?

There are many tuning firms who use a rolling road as part of their tuning services, usually with a small cost. Are rolling roads necessary? We’re obviously biased, and we don’t include these as part of the mobile services and it’s easy for us to say that they’re not necessary in any way, shape or way. But the reality is that they’re fantastic for measuring the strength of a vehicle and get a first-hand view of the performance before and after numbers. However, they’re not required with the ‘off-the-shelf’ Remaps since this software was built with rolling roads in first place. However, they are required with custom maps – ones which are designed entirely from scratch for your car.

Therefore, there’s no reason to fret about roads that roll in the event that you purchase software that is completely new for your car – in this case the tuning firm employs a rolling street to simulate the real-world experience. They can’t replicate the real-world conditions however they can do a fairly good job. And provided they’re set up correctly, they’re exact too.

It’s also crucial to keep in mind that the data that roads with rolling surfaces provide such as data on peak power and torque don’t provide any information about the performance of a car in the roadway. They don’t give you an idea of the amount of smooth, efficient or even linear force is expected to be delivered, and the information cannot be understood as such , not only by professionals. The best method to gauge how a vehicle performs on the road once it’s was tuned, is to put it out on the roads and then drive. This is why, even with custom Remaps, tuning firms do not use an open road to collect data. They will evaluate the actual performance of a remap only using tarmac.

The most important thing to remember regarding roads that are paved

Therefore, roads with rolling aren’t a necessary part of remapping our customers , but they are an important element of software tuning development and are also necessary in the development of custom tuning software. The main thing to note is that the actual outcomes of a remap is how they impact the performance of the vehicle driving, rather than in an Excel spreadsheet.
