(at least that's my best understanding of the confusing explanation). The ratio apparently is the final drive ratio multiplied by the gear ratio of the gear used. For instance with the torque, apparently what the flywheel "sees" as the rear wheel torque using my chart earlier as an example, is a little over 2000 lb-ft, and to translate that to the real number you have to adjust for the ratio.
How's that for a convoluted long answer

The short answer is that it is rear wheel power. Apparently Dynapack removed the word Flywheel in the later versions of the software because it was causing too much confusion."
OMG - this is what I love about dyno's - correction factors and convoluted explanations. At least you have a ball-park idea, which is perfectly fine.
