    Chassis Dyno

    Looking at buying an 1100 SE from Mustang. Anyone got experience with a chassis dyno? If so, did you sink it or stay on top with a lift?

    Hoss, the shop right behind me has a Mustang and has it above ground with a lift. The only problem that I have ever seen them have with this set up is when they dyno a pro stock style car it takes a lot of work to get it on the dyno since they sit soooo low. They cant put it in ground because my dad owns the building and he said no. I think the absolute best way to do it would be to use an old alignment pit.

    if space is not an issue go with above ground... if you want to maximize shop space, sink it in the ground. also it is more expensive for the above ground version as well

    True about the expense of an above ground. The 4 post lift isnt cheap, but if you will be doing other repairs and need a 4 post lift you can pay for the lift doing other repairs.

    Only prob I`ve seen is with a crewcab long bed truck,,it won`t fit on the lift. I am not worried about space. This is the only equipment going into a 3200 square foot totally air conditioned shop. I`m going to hold dyno events so I need alot of room for beer.
    I can get an 05 model 1100 se for 35k with everything. Optioned out,,see racejunk.com talked to him yesterday. But new is always good for warranty.
