You should go over to my forum and read some tech articles, there just happens to be a tech article explaining a locked out CVT. Also it might slow the tech calls down!! LOL!!

Mine will start in gear too by mashing the brake but the issue at hand is like having the clutch go out on a manual transmission car, the starter won't turn the engine and tires over so you have to push it off. Hard to do that on a dyno.
I got some weird ways but in the end it pays off.
When you lock the CVT you no longer have a clutch so the transmission is engaged all the time.
I had to put off work on this project today to get the new MSD Rhino ignitions preprogrammed, install video done and the programming video done.
By the way if you know a 700 rhino owner send them my way.
As far as FST comments go, he is right but a dyno is a great tool in the right hands and makes for a good comparison from one product to another. Also realize the dyno is only as honest as the person running it. One reason we have it is to keep the manufacturers honest.
