go for it! there is no type of machine of it's kind at this moment but i myself have thought of the idea. i've worked closely with full size dyometers for cars and always thought one for r/c's would be pretty cool.

i was going to make a machine for breaking a new engine in with a skate board

put two trucks (skate board trucks) two gether on each end of a piece of wood the lenth of the car then put the bearing and wheels on the skateboard trucks so that the cars wheels will sit right in between each of the skate board wheels , so when the wheels turn it would just turn the skate board wheels.
I know it would work , but i dont know if it will put enough pressure on the wills so it does'nt exceed the engines maximum rpms , it wouldnt cost to much!!!!!

four skateboard trucks=$60.00
eight skateboard wheels=$20.00
piece of wood=$5.00
or your can just buy two walmart skate boards a take the trucks and wheels and bearings off and put them on a piece of wood.

good idea?????????????? think it will work??????????????????????

it would make break in a lot easier!!!!!!!!!!!!11

yea i know r/c engine manufacture's have machines to test engine speeds but they are not available to the general public. it is probably a machine that resembles the machines used to test maximum hp and torque on small engines by calculating maximum engine speeds. not really a digital read out on like on a real size dyno meter.
