Pretty neat idea. At least it gives ya something to look at while doing dyno runs.

Hmmm...I wonder if I could borrow John Force'* Funny Car for a pass...

I'm not to sure about the affects on the drive train .... unless they loaded the DYNO

sooooo why would you spend money to do that when i bet you can spend less and do the real thing? btw those calculated times are BS, supposedly my car is a 10.7 car when the best i've run is a 12.4 in reality, both were me driving.
it must not be loaded right going by what he said

IMO I would rather make the actual run down the track. Its much more exciting!!

This is a cool alternative though.

Yeah for what it probably costs, I'd rather feel the kick back into the seat on the real track. But yes, agreed, not such a boring dyno run.
