get some lighter wheels/tires/driveshaft and less power is lost. so more horsepower is gained at the wheels...Then engine is still making the same power...Its just a lot easier to turn a 20lbs wheel and tire than a 50lbs wheel and tire.
Isn't the crank/chassis dyno margin of 20%?

IDK I was just saying hypothetically because I dont know exact numbers, I just understand how it works...Everything loses power when power is transfered.

In other news, 4th and 5th gear are making hella rackett...If I let off the gas in either (even with the clutch pushed in) it sounds like I put a bunch of beer cans in a clothes dryer...and makes a stange noise almost constantly in 4th....Not quite as bad as when I take off the throttle, but it donw sound good...just started when it got cold out.
You probably need a thicker gear oil or a new tranny lol

I understand, but if you are serious about your car, especially with pos jdm engines that you need to seriously modify to make godly, tire ratios usually play some part in your tuning setup.

I love this, before tonight i didn't know how a crank dyno worked. Yay internet discussions lol.

Yes they do, usually because they are part of the tranny you use as well
