It’s nuts to see and hear an engine that is NOT running, but still making almost all the noises like it is, because the Spintron is spinning it like a running engine. They can be used for all kinds of testing, and have been a really useful tool for race teams, engine manufacturers, and more for years. But what all can you use them for? Watch Richard talk about how they use them at BTR. You’ll dig it.
