I know their dyno is one of the best, a lot of motor manufacturers use it to test their motors, very accurate, but a little hard to use...

Default Robitronic charger and Dyno ?

I have the Robitronic Pro Master II Dyno. The readings that I've been getting on my Dyno have definitely been proved at the track.

Been trying to find a distributor to buy the Charger in the USA.

I own the dyno as well. Very nice. The only bad part is the lack of support in the US since trinity has switched to using the fantom dyno.

The Robi dyno can be used as a charger. It does not have the variable current charge but it's the same software as the pro charger from Robi.

You can even buy the temp probe for it. It attaches in the sensor socket in the front of the unit.

So... you already have a Robi charger

Yeah i can vouch for this dyno/charger package. The Dyno is just awesome with it's accurate results when put on the track. A good motor on the Robi dyno is almost always a good motor on the track.
As for the charger, I sometimes use it as a 2nd charger if nessicary which is not that often, but when it is, it's a good charger.

There's a couple of Robitronic Pro2000+ chargers in our club. They are excellent. I plan on getting the Expert myself, when I upgrade my charger at some point.

I have been looking at a Robitronic dyno, but since trinity made the switch, can't find a good competitive source on them, anyone know where I can pick one up?

Don't get me wrong but lugging my $600+ and very LARGE Robi to the track just to "Charge", doesn't seem like a very good idea. Almost everyone I know of that has or had the Robi, NEVER used the charging feature. I also like a Charger that is compact enough to fit in the top of my Pit Box. This is why my Quasar Pro stays Home too.

I know what you mean... I never take mine to the track.

I take a much more compact unit (T35 GFX ).

Now seriously, I tend to preserve my $600 dyno, and use the charger/discharger instead.
However at home sometimes I use it. It just does not seem adequate to take it with me.

I need a dyno to figure out what's up with my Reedy Kr, the RPM's picked up as I decreased the timing, never had that happen before...
