i don't think there is a commercially available dyno. RC CAR Action had one made for them so they could compare different motors in articles. However, its cost them something like $7,000 to make.

Yeah there is one made by Holeshot Racing in the US. It costs around US$400 I think.

It does not look like you can use a rear exhaust engine with a header and pipe on this holeshot dyno. If not, what good is it?

Why not? Even if the motor gets in the way of the exhaust you can mount the header facing the opposite direction and have the exhaust pointing the other way also??????? The only thing I don't quite understabd is that EP dynos worked by 'pulling' a calibrated flywheel load, not sure how calibrated the motor would be?
