Roush Yates Selects Dynojet as Official Chassis Dynamometer
Roush Yates Performance announces addition of testing services for any and all high performance vehicles.
Roush Yates Performance has announced that it has begun offering chassis dynamometer testing services to racers and to those who own high performance vehicles of virtually any type, make, or model. The company has partnered with Las Vegas-based dynamometer manufacturer Dynojet Research to offer two chassis dynamometers housed at Roush Yates' Performance Products building in Mooresville, NC.
According to Roush Yates' chassis dyno operations director Jeff Paxton, the company will feature two Dynojet systems its newest model, the recently installed 224xLC2, as well as the Dynojet model 248 a staple for years in testing NASCAR race vehicles. Roush Yates' customizable service will include complete horsepower-to-wheels analysis, the ability to specifically tune engines to achieve optimum horsepower and torque using OBD2 programming device systems with proprietary software, and immediate testing of recently purchased performance upgrades.
"Dynojet is a great company and universally respected in the performance industry," said Paxton. "Our companies are a great fit as Roush Yates continues to expand its array of product and service offerings. Having in-house, publicly accessible chassis dynamometers is a necessity for Roush Yates Performance as it looks to grow and become the industry leader for virtually any performance solution."
Paxton, who has more than 14 years of chassis dynamometer experience with the Jack Roush, Penske, and Roush Yates organizations, emphasizes the service should not be considered for racers only.
The Dynojet 224xLC2 has street car components and vehicle dynamics and that can test up to 2,000 horsepower (to rear wheels) in measurement capacity, as well as up to 4,000 ft. lbs. of torque. The unit is diversified to handle diesel applications, analyze load control that can simulate actual road conditions (aerodynamics, hills, etc.), and has electronics that communicate with any OBD2 port.
