What is a rolling road?
A chassis dynamometer (dyno) sometimes called a rolling road, is a device used for engine testing. It uses a roller assembly to simulate road loads in a controlled environment.
A power run or dyno test measures the power and torque at the wheels of a vehicle.
Dyno and Workshop Services
Gotboost’s Rolling Road is a Mainline 2 wheel drive, twin 217 mm roller Chassis Dynamometer.
It can be used in two ways;
1. Steady-state mode for mapping and also in
2. Acceleration mode which produces repeatable power curves.
The rolling road measures a maximum of 600bhp at the wheels up to a speed of 250 Kph. Depending on transmission type and tyres it can measure up to 500 flywheel bhp easily after which you will have traction problems.
The software logs the power output at 1mph intervals and can calculate the power losses through the transmission and tyres using math channels.
The results can be plotted and extracted for further analysis, in various formats. Comparison graphs can be produced between several runs and these assist the operator when making adjustments to the engine.
The rolling road has a digital read-out which displays real-time data as measured at the wheels.
Our dyno cell houses our fantastic Mainline Dynolog 2WD chassis dyno (www.mainlineauto.com.au)
The dyno is housed in an air flowed cell with a 1.5m 25000CFM axial extraction fan and 20hp of high-pressure vehicle cooling, allowing us to test even high horsepower cars without heat issues.
