Dyno Run - Industrial AC

Acmotor...   ...I've always been told that the rollers have a set weight to them and that tie down has an effect on how the tires grip the rollers...   ...I don't think the dyno puts a programable "load" on the car...   ...but how the dyno displays the graph is the programable part...   ...(I could ...

Dyno Run - Industrial AC

Acmotor...   ...The Dyno doesn't start at naught because runs are usually done in higher gears in ICE vehicles...   ...A kind of rolling start if you will...   ...Get moving in first...   ...Step up to the run gear...   ...idle in the run gear for a moment...   ...and then FLOOR IT!!!...   ...Most o...

But the torque curve doesn't go below 0 anyway...

Yes it looks odd that there are negative values on the right axis...   ...But their is not any negative torque in the curve...

Dyno Run - Industrial AC

You only use two axes for each curve...   ...Not all three... You read the power curve from the left axis (plain line) and the torque from the right axis (dotted line)... It would be better if the right axis was lined up with the left axis for girding the curves...   ...But then the torque curve may...

Would it be cost effective for Tesla to open a factory here for assembly for the Australian market???...

Or have someone license the rights to assemble over here???...

Just a thought...   ...As I'd love to work there...   :P

I know this is really for an ICE cars (and I'm thinking of getting one for my current car)...   ...But I'm wondering if anyone has thought of this item for their BEV...

I was gonna say...   ...That explosion reminded me of the one in Terminator 3...

I guess it took a while between the hole going into the pipe and the spark being applied to the escaping gas...   ...And not much wind on that day either...
