Anybody use Dynomation software?

  1. I figure it won't hurt to ask this in a few places. I ran across some engine modelling software from Motion, called Dynomation, earlier today. I'm looking to play with some cam timing on my computer, and this looks killer!

    Does anyone on here have experience with the software? Care to offer a quick review? I'm hoping to get some opinions, before dropping $400 on software.
     
  2. No but I read about some really great software for easily and fastly converting DVDs.
    Unfortunately it only works on sparkly homosexual vampires.
     
  3. LOL! Thanks for the :bump:

    I just have a few different spreadsheets that I made up in excel for motor-building. I've never invested in software like this, although it looks like it could be fun to play with.
     
  5. It *is* a bit pricy, but I've got a plan in mind that could make full use of its capabilities. And now I know a few people who want to play with it. :mrgreen:

    That is alot of dough to drop just for fiddling with cam timing.

    I think there is a load of info if the software actually does what it claims. Understanding port profile can enable you to find alot of power gains.

    I like this review:
    "I have worked with many good race teams, but rarely do you find one that grasps the concepts of pressure waves and taper. Dynomation-5 gives you the ability to understand what is happening in the engine. You should never underestimate what that will teach you.

  7. Ohhh, I'm not just "fiddling with cam timing." ;)

    I got in touch with Motion Software today, and I'm going to purchase. Without going into too much detail, I've got a couple of industry experts who are going to help me with all of the necessary measurements to model an engine. Custom configurations will be tested for development purposes. I've got a few things in the works. More will come, later.

    The expert reviews are certainly encouraging. 8)

    Jackie, I'll try to give you a first-hand look. In fact, if you'd like to give me a call, I'll share some more info. This is exciting stuff for me!
     
  8. It's here... I have Dynomation 5 Professional and a super secret keyfob.

    Sweet!

    I would LOVE to get my hands on that setup... :evil4:
     
  10. I input the cylinder bore, stroke, and rod length last night, along with a bunch of wild-assed guesses for runner lengths and exhaust dimensions. I let the calculator determine valve size by bore with a generic pentroof four-valve head. The results? The generic "economy" and "performance street" cams produced graphs that were eerily close to actual numbers recorded for my bike.

    I think I'm going to have some fun! :mfclap:
