The most popular is probably the CE TurboDyno. I know many major companies use it. But it does cost an arm and a leg. For your first dyno, you can't go wrong with the Fantom. If you get hooked on tuning, then bump up to something more expensive.

My results are consistant through 30 runs or more now, which is more than enough to test 5 or more motors thoroughly. ...........

thanks !! I guess one need to improvise to improve on the weakness of our equipment. This is what I'm doing too.

If you really want to learn about Dynos, their faults and how to use them, go read this thread -

http://www.rccars.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=9

I'm not a huge fan of Big Jim, but there is TONS of good info in there about all the Dynos mentioned here.

FYI I paid $275 for my CS used (barely), and the packs I'm using cost me maybe $60 for all 4, still the cheapest solution. It gives good graphing information and amp steps too.

When I saw all the big teams on the carpet nationals, they didn't use any dynos. Are those even necessary?

OVA - It really isn't possible to compare numbers, since you may be using a better or worse battery to test with. Even with dynos that use the same equipment, numbers can be different by 10%, which is quite a bit.

Just make sure you know how your motor performs on the track, if it's good, dyno it and save those numbers, then try to get your other motors to similar specs.

The most important thing is Watts. Shoot for peak watts around 30 amps for stock touring, maybe a little lower for stock offroad, like 25 to 28. If you find your best motor puts out it's peak Watts at 25 amps, you could play with spring tension to see if you can move that a little higher for TC, and it should perform better.

Just experiment with each motor, different spring tensions, different brushes, until you find what that motor likes. Keep in mind, each one is different too, you may have 5 Monster Stock motors, and they may all need different spring tensions to run the same.

Good luck,

Mike

OVA - I have seen the same motor pull 135 Watts peak, then using a different battery it shows 110 Watt peak. My numbers will mean nothing to you, just compare your own motors to each other, and tune based on your best motor. If a friend has a really fast motor, ask to dyno his/her motor, and compare to yours. Always use the same batteries, charged in the same way, etc., just try to be as consistant as possible.

If you have a computer you can hook it to, use it. The info on the screen is not very useful, but the info you can get on the computer is great.

Even with 2 packs, I wouldn't trust results after about 8 or 9 runs. The quality of the packs isn't really important, as long as you have run time (4 packs). Mine are older 3300 matched packs that I used for practice. My back to back to back runs are all within a couple of Watts on the same motor now, where using a single pack it could be 10 Watts off back to back.

Take care,

Mike
