Smart Car... on a dyno????!!!! LOL you gotta see this!

Check it out! We had a couple of SMART CARS come in for Dyno
testing last week! I couldn't help myself! I grabbed a video camera
and taped it. I made a couple of videos of it, and blogged about it.

Funny stuff.

The 2nd one actually had headers on it, and at least sounded
pretty tough. It had better HP too than the first one
(which was bone stock).

Brothers Performance Blog
the smart car article is at the top of the page.


Hey, I can appreciate anyone who wants to see what kind of performance
they're getting out of their car, and want to get a baseline established
as they do their mods. But I gotta' admit I was a little concerned that
these SMART cars would even fit on the ramps to get to the Dyno!

LOL!

Friend of mine said that he's got a sewing machine in his closet he'd like to test next!

62.5 at the wheels for the stocker, and 72.5 for the one with headers.

a 6.2% Hp gain by just putting on a header on that little thing. PRETTY DAMN GOOD for a skateboard.

If you lived in a real downtown metro area with really tight access, I could see this as a good alternative to a scooter.

72.5 hp for 1 litre? Not bad, so a 6.2 litre engine would produce 450 rwhp.

Seriously, I have driven one and they are a (in My Opinion) complete joke of a car, for the same price you can get a real car with the same or close to the same mileage.....

I do think they're overpriced. I know people who live in Seattle who swear they've never even had the opportunity to go over 45 between speed limits and traffic. Doesn't really matter beyond safety what you drive in those conditions. I think I'd rather drive a fit though.

I know. And I wouldn't feel safe in one at ALL. If a mosquito hits the car it's likely to tip over.

In Amsterdam they have decided that its a lot more fun to roll smart cars (end over end) into the canals than to toss bicycles in, makes a much bigger splash.
