Our Mustang AWD linked 2000bhp dyno rolling road is housed with out purpose built tuning facility. As always we take our tuning to a new degree offering in house research and development on all of our tuning software including engine and gearbox ecu remapping.
The Mustang dyno we chose is a new and current model with a 2000BHP capacity, 4WD capability and linked front and rear rollers. Running twin exhaust extraction to disperse the high exhaust gas temperatures and cold air feed to be able to dyno the most powerful of vehicles without fault.
Mustang’s AWD incorporates a linked drive system that synchronises the front and back rollers to simulate a flat, dry road condition. Synchronisation, or linkage, insures that the front and rear rollers are always spinning at precisely the same road speed. This process eliminates the possibility of activating a vehicle’s traction control system and also insures that a vehicle’s torque management system is operating under the assumption that the vehicle is not skidding, turning or slipping.
Full time AWD vehicles are designed to provide maximum performance regardless of road conditions. In cases where traction is less than ideal, a vehicle may be designed to improve stability and traction at the expense of power. This means adding torque to a spinning wheel or retarding of timing. In order to properly test an AWD vehicle for peak performance, an AWD chassis dynamometer must be able to simulate ideal road-load conditions to the vehicle. This approach allows the vehicle to be evaluated under “optimum” operational conditions; whereby torque is distributed to the vehicle’s tires in the same manner that would normally occur when a vehicle has equal traction at all four drive wheels, and is therefore operating at peak efficiency.
