The Dynamometer program evaluates the gokart’s engine performance and gives you the theoretical value for the engines horsepower..
This particular program was used to evaluate the Superchargers performance, to see how much power increase the supercharger gave to the engine.
The Go Kart Dynamometer program assumes that the go kart is starting from a dead stop and is accelerating to top speed during a clocked time period.
To perform this acceleration it takes a certain amount of Horsepower to do this.
The major variables in this program are Time and Distance, along with the gear ratios and weight.
To Run Program:
Enter the time into the first box. Press the button to see the completed analysis.
The distance and gear ratios are all put in at preset levels. These may be changed to accommodate your design.
