New dyno install!!

Well guys I took the plung and bought a Mustang MD-250 chassis dyno with an eddy current brake and am installing it right now, i have made a hole in my garage floor and just filled it last night ans I am gonna wait 4-5 days before I set the dyno in.. So if there are any local guys that want to dyno tune, let me know!!

That'll be really cool. I'd love to have that little back hoe to use around my house this summer what a handy little machine.

I don't have a chassis dyno I have an engine dyno and what I've found with that thing is that often times I come away with a lot more questions than answers! Needless to say it's taught me a lot.

You should have a "Dyno Day Contest". A local shop that use to be open over in Beaufort, SC had one every once in a while. I think he charged something like $45-50 to enter and paid out $500 to the winner. The import guys eat that up, he had them lined up down the street waiting for their turn.
