    Sure let me know the next time you are around. We can grab a beer and I'll let you jump on the give a shot at balancing some stuff. Your background should make it a breeze for you to pick up.

    We use both the Heins/WCB (low speed/component/dual plane) AND the CIMAT (dynamic high speed VSR and middle speed dual plane)… pretty much a requirement to get our results that we can PROVE via a dynamic balance printout. So, let us know when you are balancing to our levels. That is what you are welcome to do anytime… and requires no visits just sending proof via printouts to each of your paying customers. Pretty simple really. As for your native balancing environment, very interesting to see how it does everything from provide exhaust into the turbine to pressurizing a given engine through all of its plumbing. Heck lets even add in the wastegate operation too. We know your machine and it does very little to simulate anything real aside for cutting substantial costs in the initial tool purchase. In short you chose it because it was extremely cheap. Either way hopefully it works well enough for you to realize shortly that you had a lot to learn, which I am sure it will. Thanks, Rob

    Do you do shop tours or anything Tony. Next time I'm down in California I'd love to stop by and take a look. I'm interested in how much of the stuff I deal with actually translates.

    Good thing I still can't see what captain dipshit is typing. The fact that our second machine is the only one on the market to actually balance in the native turbo environment is why we chose it. This not only means you get a balance in the actual environement that the turbo lives in, it can be used for pulling real flow numbers from turbos installed on it for balancing. Let him spin that one for you, as I am sure he will. He has been balancing his own turbos for all of 6 months, and he is an expert. What are you doing about the turbine plane? Do you first balance the CHRA in both planes, then VSR the compressor plane only. Open invitation, come down to our shop and step onto our component balancing machine which is an industry standard Heins / WCB balancer. We will video you balancing a turbo with out needing any help. I volunteer to do the same. Better yet, bring a prebalanced rotating assembly and put it on there, we will see how close you actually get things before you assemble. You are welcome anytime!

    Missed this in my fight with Rob. Yes that was what I was referring to with my critical frequency comment. Most machines have an RPM range that the machine will resonate at and it should be ramped through that range as fast as possible to prevent machine damage. Like I told Rob I don't balance or build turbos but I do operate and monitor complicated turbo machinery. I do sometimes wish we weren't still using Bentley Nevada racks but what can you do.

    Why you are welcoming us to the performance industry standard of VSR dynamic balancing is beyond me, but congrats on the new Hobest VSR so the welcome is extended to you. ;) Take care, Rob

    At least someone has reading comprehension. This guy is such a marketing hype misinformation machine. Congrats you bring your CHRA's down below factory specs. Welcome to the performance turbo industry standard.
