As promised, we will have an AWD Dynamometer at the track at Mid-Ohio for the 2008 NASA Championships. It will be a Dynapack, and will be used for official testing of all TT, PT, and ST AWD vehicles. So, AWD competitors have enough time to ensure they are compliant on the Dynapack before the event. Per the rules, NASA may choose to use any of the four Dyno models listed for AWD testing. If there are any problems with the use of the Dynapack, competitors should be aware that the likely fall-back would be a Mustang Dyno. All RWD and FWD cars subject to dyno-based classing will be tested on a Dynojet. However, it is within the rules for NASA to use any method chosen to perform non-invasive testing of other RWD and FWD vehicles (PT and TT cars that were not re-classed based on Dyno results), which could include Dynapack testing (as a precursor to more invasive testing such as motor tear-downs).

No, we used GPS monitoring this year, and there was no evidence that any of our AWD cars in TT or PT were non-compliant.

I never got close enough to see how strong they were. :lol:

Regardless, NASA needs to be able to check all cars for dyno compliance or have an AWD class. GPS doesn't cut it.
