get a motor checker if you just want to see what springs, brushes, etc.. work the best on yur motor and to see how fast yur motor is but with a dyno thats if you are into racing seriously if you want to make yur motor faster and that stuff

I just purchased a Surikarn V3.0 motor checker and i find it very usefull...

I find that im more competitive now cause my motors are alway running there best...

A motor checker is just what it is, dont take the readings as gospel....

My Turbo GFX is always busy charging....so I use the TeamMuch-More Surikarn to run my lathe, break-in motors and check amp. draw (for reference).
It's worth for me.

I don't go by the amp draw scenario.... My Chamelion 2 pulls way more amps then a Reedy Quad Mag does.....

Motor checkers are used to make sure the motor does indeed still spin and spins in the correct direction.
