MiniPro 2WD chassis dyno

Coming from MiniPro is a 2WD chassis version of their chassis dynamometer system. The device allows to measures the RPM, kV, voltage, current draw, power and torque output of vehicles up to 370mm wheelbase and 370mm width. This dyno is ideal for motor analysis, ESC and boost adjustment, brushless sensor adjustment, gearing calculation, tire selections, and much more. It is coupled with to a knurled roller via a pulley and belt to accelerate the inertial flywheel. The electronic board takes the flywheel’s inertia, measures the rate it takes to accelerate and calculates the output power and torque of the vehicle. The dyno repeatedly measures and calculates power in small increments to produce an accurate graph on a PC of the engine’s power characteristics. The vehicle is stopped onto the dyno with adjustable belt stripes, allowing to use a multitude of different chassis such as 1/10th formula, 1/10th and 1/12th pan cars. The dyno is available including or without flywheel unit and it us usable with MS Windows 7, 8 or 10 PC systems.
