TWF8 Engine break-in software

Run in Bench -

Our partner site has a piece about the new ‘revolutionary’ engine break-in software developed by Paco Raap over at The contraption in the picture above is simply the run in bench mounted to the starter box with the propeller driven through a full corner of a buggy.

With this software you can test clutches and show the graphs and data of transsitions, starting point of connection and slippage. All data will be saved as Excel file and can be view and worked over in a later stage or directly. It uses same PHIDGET device as the BISS and an extra DATAQ 158 USB datalogger with some extra electronics. It measures rpm engine, rpm clutch and engine temperature.

You can read more about it as well as download a demo of the software here.
