MD-AWD-1100 Series

30" / 12.625" Rolls, 225-mph, 3,500-hp, 1,800-hp Peak Absorption, 2WD/AWD Modes

MD-AWD-1100 Series. Designed to test virtually any vehicle on the road.

Mustang designed the MD-AWD-1100 Series to be a dyno that could be easily adapted to fit literally any testing scenario without ever having to make a single compromise. In AWD mode, the 1100 Series can test AWD vehicles with wheelbases up to 134″, large enough to handle Hummer H2s. In 2WD mode, the 1100 Series uses 30″ diameter rolls with low base mechanical inertia to allow you to test the lightest vehicles out there. De-coupling the two 30″ rolls takes the system down to a single 30″ roller and a PAU, perfect for testing motorcycles. When Mustang says that the MD-AWD-1100 is the most versatile AWD dyno at any price, this is what we mean. You can test any vehicle or motorcycle that comes through your door, Switch from AWD to 2WD to MC modes with a simple click of the mouse when equipped with the optional air-actuated coupling systems.

Like all Mustang dynos, The MD-AWD-1100 includes all of the advanced tuning capabilities that are included with the standard PowerDyne Software application such as constant speed, constant torque, step tests, and elapse time tests like 1/4 sprint – all performed using Mustang’s patented Vehicle Simulation technology where the dyno automatically controls the loading to simulate actual “on-road” conditions.
