Has any members had their MINI on a rolling road?

Because the car has asc or at least i think thats why,
If the car is on a rolling road it knows that the front wheels are turning and not the rears and will not allow the car do do the Bizz?
does anyone know how to disable it for the rolling road test?

Press the button that says ASC+T so that the light on the rev counter comes on ??

When I had my car on the rolling road we switched it off as you said but when we went to drive away two lights stayed on the dashboard until I had driven up the road a bit.

According the the rolling road guy this happens on all modern cars because as you say the front wheels are going fast, and the rears not moving.

Doesn't seem to have harmed the car in any way - first had it on the rolling road about 5000 miles ago.

A "rolling road" is what people in the UK call a dynamometer where the car's drive wheels are placed on rollers, the car is strapped down, and the performance of the car at different speeds and loads is scientifically measured. It appears that from Zooooom's post "the bizz" is the actual testing. :)

To clarify further, "Bizz" is short for "business". It is pretty common over here and could be used in all sorts of contexts.

What was it that you wanted to measure on the rolling road then?
Did it cost you much to do ?
it costs nothing due to friends in high places.
the purpose of it is a temporary secret just a wee experiment.:)

You weren't looking to see if the left wheel spins at a slower rate than the right one were you...?
