definately make sure she is warm first, cold revving an engine even in neutral isnt a good idea as the tolerances are looser than once it gets warm and the metals expand and everything becomes tight and uniformly fits. at least let the needle come up off the bottom line a few mm. gives the chance for the oil to be at temp too.

course a dyno puts an engine under load.

Otherwise the thing would just redline in a few seconds.

The whole point of a dyno is to make it like driving on a road except being able to record the power and its all safe.


yeah thinking over it, it would have to put it under pressure.

Has there ever been a case where a car on a dyno has somehow grip and taken off? lol


Lol i have thought about that when my car has been on the dyno, it would be pretty funny to see if someones car just shot off
