Re: Dyno - what gear do they use in a manual (3rd?) and how do they dyno autos?
Thanks for that but I'm still not sure how they hold the autos in gear...
And I am looking at my dyno graph right now.... both before and after chip the cut out is at around 170km/h - is this because it meets the rev limiter (not in 4th coz I have done more than 170km/h in 4th myself) OR because they just cut it once it reaches peak power? Also, according to the chart, the torque peaks at around 90km/h before and after the chip, and that if this is in 4th, that is at pretty low revs - not what Ford claim max torque is (3700ish) for mine... hence I thought it was done in 3rd....because that would make sense - the torque would be peaking right at about Ford's claimed revs if it was in 3rd at that speed.... I am just guessing though... It is also not far off maximum torque at the start of the test, which is at 85kw and 75km/h.....I would be quite sure there would not be enough revs at 75 in 4th to pull that kind of torque....
Maybe I just don't know what I am talking about - might have to ask.
It was definitely done in shootout mode. And why not in 3rd????
