    The dyno chart needs to just be posted. The video is still waiting for editing/marketing. They are a bit behind, but should have it done soon.

    Thank you,

    Re: D3 Tuned Cadillac XLR-V

    I'm a bit confused... this chart is showing two graphs - what is the difference between the two? And also - it says "fly wheel" - doesn't the dyno show rear-wheel #'s? are these estimations?

    Re: D3 Tuned Cadillac XLR-V

    Sorry for the confusion. The graph shows wheel HP as it is measured at the wheels. The chart says flywheel as a default. There is a technical reason for this, but I honestly don't remember.

    The lower numbers you see posted on the sheet are the initial numbers from previous runs before everything was dialed in. That was the only sheet I had at the time....

    Let us know if there are any questions.
