Dyno Strap Heat Guard
Sometimes it is the simplest ideas that have the potential to save a majorly ruined day. Developed to add a protective layer to dyno straps that run close to exhaust exits or other hot areas of an operating vehicle, these protective sheaths are made of a high-temperature-resistant aluminized material to withstand 500°F direct heat and 2000°F of radiant heat.
"It started with a frantic call from a local tuner shop," says Design Engineering's Product Manager Mike Buca.
"He wanted to know if we offered a protective heat sleeve for dynamometer tie-down straps. It seems this tuner nearly launched a car while on the dyno because the exhaust heat exiting the tailpipe actually burned through an already weakened area on the strap.
"Dyno Strap Heat Guard protects against such scenarios by easily slipping on over standard tie-downs, allowing them to be positioned near exhaust pipe exits. The sheaths measure 5" wide by 36" long and are manufactured with a business-like silver finish."
