I have had situations where gearing up to reach a maximum allowable motor temperature gave slower lap times than a shorter gear ratio did. It's most common in classes like 17.5/1s 12th scale and 25.5/2s VTA, and very dependent on track layout and ambient temperature.

I'd like to purchase one but I'm unsure of the options available and what I should be getting. I only do off road buggy for 8th and 10th scale. What would be the best options for me in regards to a flywheel? I do 13.5 and below.

The miniPro dyno is great. The reputability is amazing.

You just need to take out a secured loan on your house to afford one, then another on your car to cover the excessive freight costs.

Bang for buck the Eagle Racing MD2 Dyno does a similar job without ripping your heart out through your hip pocket. The Minipro dyno has potential, but they need to be priced more competitively.

MD2 was only ever available in Japan AFAIK.

Also is now discontinued. So second hand is the only option.
