The reason why Im getting a dyno is for a tuning/motor business, nothing big like the other tuners out there. Maybe will be lucky if I sell/tune 20 stock motors a month so I can still enjoy the hobby. Having dyno sheets is a must to sell motors these days. I can guarantee most of the guys buying don't even know what it means, but they would still prefer having one anyway. Looks like I will be getting a Robi so anyone here still uses them.

its fun at first but I started with 4 to 6 motors a week , befor I knew it I was getting 5 to 6 packages a day!!! Now since March I had sold 157 stock motors and have rebuild and tuned a total 76 motors to date! and I just open another box today with 3 more motors!!

Robi 's are good dyno's but I think they are a little hard to find now that trinity does import them.you can buy them new from robi but I have a hard time reading german or whatever thier site is.Talk to your local hobby shop see if they can get you one.One of my friends has one got it not too long ago just not sure where or how he got it.

Good on you Marcos, I doubt that will happen to me since the market here in Sydney, Australia is so small compared in the US.

i have had 4 dynos, CE, Robi, CS and fantom. i rank them in the same order, i have gotten rid of the latter two because i feel they were to inconsistent. the best to me is still the CE, but i use the robi 1st because i run brood motors and eddieo uses the robi and i like to see how close my numbers are to his and i understand that no two dynos are the same but it gives me a good base line then i switch to the CE.

Does anyone here know what other printers can work to obtain dyno sheets from a Robi or knows someone that still sells them (new or used)?
