Portable MD-AWD-500 - Mechanically linked AWD PORTABLE performance dynamometer

With the Portable MD-AWD-500, you have a portable drag strip that can handle just about any 2WD or AWD car on the street. Equipped with a drag racing timing system, multiple displays, and Mustang’s DragSim software, the portable MD-AWD-500 is sure to draw large crowds where ever it appears.

One thing is for sure, a dyno draws big crowds when it shows up at an event. There is something about watching the wheels spin and listening to an engine at full throttle that captures people’s attention. Add to that actual drag racing times, reaction time results and a virtual animation of the car racing down the strip or street and you’ve got yourself some serious racing entertainment.

Mustang’s top-of-the-line portable chassis dynamometer is the Portable AWD-500 Series dynamometer. No other dyno offers all of the benefits of a Mustang AWD-500 dyno in such a tightly-engineered portable package.

Mounted inside of a flatbed trailer, the portable AWD-500 is easy to trailer to and from events and can be set-up by a single operator. This is the ultimate portable dyno. Great for promotional events, dyno sharing arrangements or as a traveling dyno for trade shows or car show events.

Like the standard AWD-500, the portable version can test both AWD and 2WD vehicles and can switch back and forth with a simple click of the mouse. With added  displays, a drag racing timing system and Mustang’s DragSim Software and you’ve got yourself a portable drag racing strip that is dead nuts accurate, extremely repeatable and a real crowd pleaser.
