S.W.R.D. provide a full dynometer (dyno) facility. We utilise the state of the art “Sport Devices” data acquisition unit coupled with a 100% built for purpose kart dyno. The dyno has been specifically designed to replicate the drag-run of a kart engine on an international standard kart circuit straight, thus giving realistic run times and output figures.
The facility has the ability to accurately measure and record in real time the engine:
- Engine Temperature
- Exhaust Temperature
The Official Wright Karts Factory Team have benefited greatly from this new facility whch is located on the factory premises. The ability of the dyno to give a measurable quantitative result gives hard evidence on the premium set-up of your materials, whether it be a carburettor, engine or exhaust. The best balance between a number of engines, carburettors and exhausts can also be found to give you the “Ultimate” power unit available to you.
The real time recorded traces can be overlapped with any number of previous tests, effectively allowing the optimum engine set-up to be found off track. Allowing you to hit the ground running on your next race/test day.
The official race team of S.W.R.D, Team Wright Karts has one of the longest and most successful histories in British Karting amassing British Championship titles spanning from 1978 to the present day.
