Chassis Dyno Testing

Post by BBO Omega » Sun Mar 22, 2015 4:39 pm

A little warning for my Gear Head buddies that spend time on the old Chassis Dyno:

Mickey Thompson tires which have been subject to use on a Dyno must no longer be used for subsequent, normal service. Use of Mickey Thompson tires on a Dyno will invalidate the tire warranty.
At no time should the following Mickey Thompson tires be used on a Dyno: ET Drag
ET Motorcycle
Pro Drag Radials
ET Street
ET Street Radial
ET Street Radial II
This is Mickey Thompson DRAG / STREET Technical Bulletin #8.

Cannot blame them for warning against use on a dyno.
As the tire is subjected to excess tread and side wall bending when loaded against a round radius roller
wheel instead of a flat surface (the road).

Have not measured but I bet the tires gets real hot from the flexing distortion.

Its just too hard on the tires.

We blistered the bejesus out of a set of Coker slicks once.

A few pulls won't hurt 'em usually, but make sure to do some cool down slow rolling so you don't end up with a flat spot.
