Can you do a reverse gear dyno? Is it possible?

the dyno will correct for the gear ratio. i'm not sure if chassis dynos are setup for bi-directional operation though. you would see lower numbers than usual though due to higher drivetrain losses, and also higher inertial parasitics. the other thing is, some cars won't allow WOT or revs over a certain amount in reverse either.

so not sure what the point would be.

Racing in reverse would be awesome. NOT. :p

I remember samir's video. that crazy mofo went so fast in reverse.
I want to challenge him in reverse racing.

steve, as for the point, I honestly have no friggin idea why I asked this yesterday.
