Where can I find the tractive effort figure on a dyno printout?
Can I please have some T/E figures for testing my calculator.
The dyno graph printouts can display what ever reading you chose (as long as it was measured).
Most will have POWER (hp or kW) on the left axis and the other (right) is up to you. Some are AFR (mixture), VACUUM, TORQUE or TRACTIVE EFFORT, which will be a line just like power or torque as speed/rpm increases. You know its just TE because the units on the side scale are just N or lbs (ie, no length units eg ft/lbs or Nm).
I got 1280 lbs of tractive effort (4.11's and 265/50x15's)
Brenx got 6600 N and 7950 N after the latest upgrades (4.11's and I think about a 25'ish inch tyre diam)
So both an imperial and metric example for your first crunching.
