Chassis Dynamometers

MD-Gladiator Series

8.575" Rolls, 150-mph, 1,200-hp, 2WD Low-Profile Chassis Dynamometer

MD Gladiator - Ultra-low inertia for precise steady state tuning.

The Gladiator is best suited for real-time, steady state tuning of stand-alone engine management systems such as Autronic, MoTeC, Accel DFI, F.A.S.T., AEM, Haltech and the like.  From a dynamometer stand-point, the main focus of real-time programming is dynamometer sensitivity, resolution, and set-point stability.  The Gladiator’s ultra-low inertia design and high speed controller maximize the user’s experience by minimizing controller “wondering” and enhancing system control-simply dial in a speed and let the Gladiator take over.  Add timing and watch torque increase right on the dynamometer screen in real-time until you have optimized engine timing and fuel mixture.

The Gladiator can be installed above or below ground, it is your choice-however, one of the Gladiator’s main assets is its smaller size-which, of course, makes it easy to install right on the shop floor.  Mustang Dynamometer offers a set of aluminum ramps which can be removed when the dynamometer system is not in use.  Mustang Dynamometer also offers an optional caster kit which allows the Gladiator to be moved about the shop.  This is the ideal dyno for a smaller shop with limited space that does not want to compromise.
