The Yokomo is just a checker, the figures it gives are under no load. Dynos put the motor under load to better replicate a car being driven along.

The Yokomo is good for running in motors, finding out whether they need rebuilding, and ROUGHLY comparing motors in the pit box. A Dyno will give a much truer impression of how good the motor is.

FYI... If you have any doubts about what some of us have said for a long time... that is that Fantom Facts can't be trusted all that much... You should take a look at some recent comments that Todd Putnam has made recently over at Hobby Talk, in the Oval Racing/general_discussion section... The topic is 'new trinity 4 magnet stock motors', on about the 4th page Todd starts talking about his recent observations regarding the Binary2 'outlaw' and what his Fantom told him vs. what the track told him...
