Default New Nitro Engine Dyno: The X-Dyno

Check out the short video clip we posted today on Xtreme R/C's website: http://www.rc411.com

I've seen this thing run, it's pretty slick. Not like anything I've seen before, and certainly providing some interesting results. There is an interview with the dyno's designer in the upcoming issue of the magazine, it's definitely something to see.

Pretty slick looks like the inertia dyno I have been working on the last six months. It is the only way to go. regardless of whatever numbers it produces its repeatability that counts. A to B to A

The dyno will be sold through Xtreme Directly.

Pre-orders will be taken soon, but remember this isn't any toy dyno...it's the real deal Holyfield.

It is very interesting coment "but remember this isn't toy". Well, I am not toying here ( in hobby), need to test engines which we are desining and making. Who else here in RC car world design and makes engines and spares for existing brandnamed engines as a hobby on it's own money ( no sponsorship, no investments)? I am real Holyfield myself.
If yu have info where I can at list test one engine for now, please share it.

We currently have our dyno and are taking pre-orders for ordered dynos.

If you check out the next issue of XRC there's an introduction to the dyno.

Repeatablity is near perfect (as far as dynos can be) and results are more realistic (hint, hint).

My toy comment is that this is an expensive piece of equipment, there was no insult in that comment. It was more to let other people know that you won't be buying one of these cheap.

If you're in the SoCal area we can set you up with a demo. We will be having an open house to see it in action soon.

It looks nice!!! Interesting....

Hi Derek,
How can I get the the upcoming issue of the magazine? Order it on-line?
In fact I would like to order Xtreme R/C Cars magazine one or two years....but...

1 YEAR U.S. 12 Issues $24.99
2 YEAR U.S. 24 Issues $44.99
Add $15.00/year for canadian postage.
Add $55.00/year for foreign postage. WHY SO EXPENSIVE???

55 / 12 = 4.58 postage / each month
24.99 / 12 = 2.08 Xtreme R/C Cars magazine / each month
4.58 / 2.08 = 2.20
so the postage is 220% of the magazine each month

You can order the issues on-line.

Shipping anything overseas is expensive. Foreign magazines here run about 8-$10 a copy on the newsstand.

We don't make the shipping rates but I can look up how expensive it is to ship European Mags here if you want

It looks like an inertia dyno. I made one myself in the past three month. But few problems I am having with this type of dyno is

1. How do you determine the state of tune of the engine on the dyno? If the engine is mounted onto the dyno it may not be running at maximum output condition (due to needle setting.)
Do you tune it on your car and then mount the engine to the dyno?

2. How do you control the throttle opening? Most of the time, this is done either through hand or the transmitter? But the speed at which you open the throttle will influence the acceleration?

3. Cooling. Do you need to attach a fan to the dyno?

Hope somebody can help me on this!!

I not interested in buying this dyno. Here's what i want.
I want you to take all the engine on the market now and test them and put the result on your mag.
So i can buy the most powerful one.
