I understand that a dyno is just a tool, and there are a few different kinds of manufacturers and styles.
My question is isnt there some kind of "standard" to check a dyno with?

For instance, when i use my volt meter, it has been calibrated by a company that checks it with a "standard" and corrects any deviation from the "standard" and i get a report saying exactly how close it was and its good for a year, etc. etc.



DynoJet is the industry standard. You go to just about any sanctioned event with hp restrictions etc and they use a DJ to measure the power before races.

I think for 2013 I'll finally make the switch to dynojet calibration and make everyone happy.

I gotta try the FTW stuff. Sounds similar to the VP109 that was oxegynated and made awesome power.

Just do it!!!

It needs fuel, A LOT of it. I maxed out my [email protected] base pressure and 84-85 peak with 2 dw65c pumps

It is Ethonal with MBTE and highly oxygenated. It has to meet class rules, so it has been tested for nitro and passes with flying colors. The previous problem with mixing e and mbte/oxy is it became very unstable and inconsistent. I would know I only broke 2-3 of my own cars trying it

Manufacturers rate their power based on engine dynos not chassis dynos. 18% loss seems low to me for AWD since most RWD's are in the 12-15% range. But again, it's all just numbers. I think the only good way to check a dyno calibration is with a precisely rated electric motor with no gear box.

Not as easy as that, it looks for drum info now.
Like I have always argued, you take the manufacture hp and there own driveline loss and the numbers always come out spot on with a dynojet.

It taste like grapes, but boy does it burn like acid in the eyes

Hit up Chris Miller, maybe you could be one if you wanted
CMR racing, Chris Miller Racing and or FaceBook FTW

Exactly, this is for special events

C85 cant touch this stuff. It barely makes the claimed 4% over pumped e85. The biggest gain is the consistency since it is exactly the same tank after tank.

I will get on it this week. I am playing catch up as it is
