that is reliable, easy to use, accurate and easy to build,
yet won't break your racing budget for the next several

Graph comparing flex lengths using an RLV A2 pipe
Yes you can!!! Keep reading...............
The following pages will show you how to build your
own dyno, which will give you excellent results in accuracy, repeatability
and economy. Unfortunately this is not a $100 project, however depending
on how many of the pieces you have around and the resources you and your
friends can come up with, you should be able to keep the total cost under
$1500. Granted this is not an insignificant amount of money, but if done
properly you will have a dyno that will give you the same and many times
better results than commercially available units costing $4000+. Make it
a club project, get a bunch of your friends together build it up and share
it, you may even be able to make some money. Take a look, your questions
and comments are welcome.
(This dyno was intended for Go-Kart racing engines, however it can
be adapted to almost any application)
