Dynamometer FAQs

Dynamometers are becoming increasingly popular in New Zealand, Australia and worldwide. A machine that was once reserved for race car drivers and petrol heads is now being used to improve the driving experience of average vehicle owners.

But for the most part, dyno machines are still vastly misunderstood, even by workshop owners. As experts in workshop equipment and AWD dynos, we aim to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about dynamometers.

What Is The Difference Between 2WD And AWD Dynos?

2WD dynos can only be used for dyno tuning on two wheel drive vehicles, while AWD dynos can be used to dyno tune almost all vehicles, including two wheel drive and four wheel drive. While AWD dynos can be a bit pricier, they are usually well worth the investment as they significantly open up your client base.

Does It Require Training To Learn How to Use the Dyno Machine?

Dyno machines can be rather complex when compared to other types of workshop equipment, and some workshop owners find it challenging to learn how to use these machines. Not everyone requires official training, but there is a lot of online learning material available for those who are interested.

What Is The Maximum Test Speed?

Dyno machines are designed to test a vehicle’s performance at various speeds. While we cannot speak for all dyno machines, our model tests speeds of up to 300km/hour.

Are Tyres Damaged In Dyno Testing And Tuning?

Certain types of workshop equipment are known to damage tyres, but our dyno machines are specifically designed so that no damage or additional heat is introduced to the tyres. This is achieved through limited flexing action.

Why Is Dyno Tuning So Popular?

Dyno tuning is so popular for the fact that it allows you to ‘fine tune’ vehicles and allows drivers to get the very best out of their engine no matter what car they drive.
