Yea all they dyno does is lie, mph and weight tells the truth

Saw girls at the track last month wearing shirts saying "what's your dyno sheet trap?"

To many people care about a dyno # and what a internet calculator says it should do, but never back any of it up

there are so many variables going on,a dyno should be used as a tuning tool,but you can plug in different numbers on the dyno and get your big H.P.#,the track doesn't tell it all either,i see the honda guys run decent trap speeds,but the cars are spinning the tires the first 1/3 rd of the track,so big hp is nothing without the traction to use it,now one friend in Hi ran low 9's on 380 whp because of traction,he didn't need big hp to run a great #.

It's more about trap speed than e.t., 10.5 @ 118 is much different than 10.5 @ 130, horsepower wise anyway..

After operating a dyno a few times, I learned how EASY it is to make inflated numbers. I picked up over 10% by changing the RPM/second. At least I think it was 10%... might have been 20%. Anyway the difference was shocking!
