    Has anyone been on/able to find a locked 4wd dyno for the newer EDC17 diesels? Had my car remapped a few mths ago and would love to dyno it and see where we're at but having a hard time finding one suitable.

    Cheers,
    Scott

    What do you mean by a "locked dyno" and your sig doesn`t mention that your car is a quattro so why do you even need a 4WD dyno? If you click on the link provided you can find all the dyno`s in the country.http://www.rollingroadregister.com/

    Thanks.

    With the EDC17 ECU the car cuts power to the front wheels if the rear wheels aren't spinning at the same speed which is why I need to find a 4wd rolling road which has the front/rear rollers locked (so I've been told anyway)

    First i have ever heard that before. I have seen lots of dyno graphs of EDC17 cars that where run on 2WD dynos so i doubt that is true especially for a FWD car.

    Turn the TC/ESP/ASR off and you're sorted. Absolute worst case and there's no button to do that, just pull the fuse out.

    Oh really? This is what I've been told by P Torque numerious times. Are you guys 100% sure of this? Apparently it's only with the new CR diesels.

    Ive spoken about this and told Frenchy to put Will straight on this, just plug VCDS in and put the ABS ECU in to diagnostic mode and its all good!
