Theo,I guess it was a fluke that repeated itself, perfect.
Anyways f.. that, there's something else I want to ask you. Why on earth would you be interested in finding out if Maha is accurate? Are you some kind of dyno critic? It's like I'm about to buy a house but first I wanna see for myself if the architect is as good as people say he is, so I run background checks on his technique, rather than just walk around the house see if I like the darn thing and make it mine. Better yet, it's like I'm having a frigid cold Starbucks Frappuccino but before taking my first sip, I wanna see for myself if the blending machine is as good as they claim, so I ask for specs along with a full demonstration of the blending process. I've been trying to understand your way of thinking since your first post and to tell you the truth, you are one of a kind.
In the interest of keeping the story as "short" as possible, I did leave out a few steps that DD took in determining the fixed % driveline figure which they used.
They definitely didn't just guess!!
if you tell me the vehicle involved, I can probably explain why they were within 3% of correlation with MSR500, in that particular case.
However, IF the Maha is as good as most of the British / European Tuners claim, it is a seriously far better approach, IF what you wish to know is Engine Power.
Of course, if one is happy to simply measure Tyre Power, as the Australian Tuning Industry has for over 50 years at least, then it is completely irrelevant.
A classic oranges / apples comparison.
With your attempt at analysis of my character, you will allow me to be seriously amused I hope?
You know your first example, with the Architect / House? If you add Builder, to your example, you are actually Spot On.
You aren't a psychologist by any chance are you??
The coffee example is only an exaggeration because of item value.
I could of course, simply use a DD or Mainline in Tyre Power mode for the work I am about to undertake, as I have done for 50 years.
However, where is the fun in that?
I want to see if this (relatively) new fangled thing is as good as its German manufacturers claim!!
I'll leave you with another piece of info on my character.
You know perfectly well what our vehicles cost.
It is basically the same in both countries.
I have searched high and low for a used complete M139 Engine for months.
I have just about given up and am about to spend 10% of the vehicle's original cost on:-
For investigative purposes.
Currently, i am debating whether to spend a further 10%, on just the cylinder head, bare. IE no cams, valves or any hardware.
MB Australia, REALLY know how to charge for spares.
You don't know a good European source for MB Parts do you??
