Supra on a Mustang DynoThe Mustang MD-AWD-500 dynamometer features a non-adjustable frame design with dual rollers in the back and triple rollers up front to accommodate vehicles with wheelbases up to 118-inches. The linked roller system ensures compatibility with today’s all-wheel drive platforms. An air- cooled eddy current power absorber with a strain-gauge type dynamic load cell enables tuning with road-like conditions. When testing two-wheel drive vehicles, the MD-AWD-500 can electronically disconnect the rollers or can be run in all-wheel drive mode for modern applications that require the non- drive wheels to be spinning to avoid activating traction control. A parasitics calibration compensates for the rollers of the non-drive wheels. In the case of Cobb Tuning SoCal’s Dyno cell, the well-ventilated and sound insulated chamber offered one of the most consistent environments for tuning.
