I use an atl set up and love it, would not want to go back to "manual testing" again.

Is plate brake testing allowed on an atl?

When I use the rbt there seems little point in using the wheel chocks as results are rarely borderline. I am sure that I have read that the use of chocks is optional anyway.
1 thing is that it does record quite a few fails on front brake imbalance as it records all the effort on the balance test, and if it is over 25% at any point it records the result, as it says in the book.
The outer good feature is that it saves results on a hard drive and gives a printout in case of any arguments at a later date :)
