Testing Supra with DynapackThe Dynapack dynamometer can be used as either a two-wheel drive or an all-wheel drive dynamometer by simply mounting a pod to each of the drive hubs. The Dynapack DP6000 Dynamometer has a horsepower capacity of 1,600 horsepower and can be used to incrementally tune at specific engine speeds throughout the RPM range. Horsepower measurement can be captured on a timed basis or a sweep through an RPM range. Since this dynamometer is not linked, some users have encountered issues collecting proper horsepower readings or have encountered complications with center differentials or traction control systems. However, Dynapack’s latest “Smart Control” software package enables 4WD torque proportioning along with a host of new features that the manufacturer states will improve resolution and should address the lack of a physical link from the front hubs to the rear hubs.
