He cannot, just as he cannot meaningfully test motor oils. What he does on the videos is only for entertainment and revenue generation.


Exactly. ATFs would be even further out of the realm of that rig. It would be like testing Shell vs Costco E10 93 gasoline by running them through a diesel engine.

ATFs are little more than glorified hydraulic oils. I know ATI has the equipment to bench test torque converters with different fluids, but I'm sure PF doesn't have hundreds of thousands of dollars for said equipment. Much less being able to test the friction/grip of clutches with different fluids.

There is no way he can test ATF and receive any meaningful results.

The facilities I work with have motored dynos, sensors to measure pressures and torques, and are run through a series of FZG and low velocity friction apparatus (LVFA) machine tests, an SAE#2 machine test (SAE 940281), a system to determine Mu(v) profiles, and various scan tool adapters for different transmissions which I doubt he has.

wow, I never thought project farm would actually get involved in this thread, interesting!

Maybe I should jump to the tools section and begin discussing a BOLTR, is AVE listening?

Let us know if he rides over in the tractor, two stroke bike or the ranger, ok?
