I'm becoming somewhat obsessed with motor tuning. I think I do that more than I wrench on my car. It might be a sickness, I'm not sure.
Either way, I want a dyno. I understand that good dyno readings don't always mean good track performance, but as tuning has become somewhat of a "sub-hobby" of mine in R/C, I want to be able to quantify the results of my rebuilding efforts.
I maintain 4 - 6 stock motors that are used for practicing and racing. Motor spray demolishes the dyno sticker so after each rebuild, it's difficult to determine which motors are my "go-to" motors and which ones are my beaters; especially since one motor can be a beater one week and, after a rebuild, be a star the next week.
So, I'd like a dyno that can:
- Measure RPM
- Measure Torque
- Measure Power Output
- Print a Dyno Sticker
I'm aware of the Competition Electronics and Robotronics dynos, but I can't find a manufacturer's link to either. If anyone can provide that or tell me of other viable options, I'd appreciate it.
