I'm sure there are plenty of threads out there on dyno runs but I'm just looking for anything a normal dyno team would not know about lotus, specifically the Elise. They had been running dynos for 15 years but it never hurts to ask...

EDIT: Looks like I put this in Exige instead of Elise, oops. Should be the same thing as far as dyno's go I'd think?

no experience here, but I would be careful how to tie down the car

Run your tire pressure on the high side. Perform your dyno run in third gear. Start at 2500 RPMs, don't let off till 8500. Make sure there are plenty of fans cooling your car. Bring a camera to record your run. Get a copy of the dyno file, most dyno companies have a free "reader" for the dyno file. Get a screen shot of the actual results, which means bring a thumb drive. Tie down points are tough to find on the Lotus, be patient.
