    Check out my Nitro R/C dyno

    We have been using this to break new motors in and tune our cars/trucks. When I have the money to buy the software I will be able to show actual hp and other features!

    The rollers can be moved to fit any truck or car.

    This gives about the same amount of resistance as running on the road!

    Here is a few videos of the end of my "break in" on my newest slayer pro

    I highly recommend a fan,if you are getting the engine up to operating temps and then doing higher rpms that air flow will be helpful to determine numbers... Engine temps stability is really important when using a Dyno for tuning these things...

    Looks cool though...

    Added note Abusive or fowl language in the video was why it was taken down, it's inappropriate for a PG forum. and you can get points for it

    I believe I sent you a link with the rules,,, I highly suggest you read them... Here they are again for everyone to go over and refresh their memories if they wish. http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...or-%28Rules%29

    And here's the Warning system and points explanation.

    We actually have three fans, you cant see the two mounted in the front of the dyno blowing across the truck and we also have one mounted underneath. We can control the speeds of the fan so we can let what we are tuning get as hot and cold as we want.

    Please read and follow the forum rules. This portion of this post has been removed because it broke at least 3 of the forum rules.
