Default Dynapack vs Superflow

So, cost roughly the same, driving distance the same.
What would you prefer? Sessions on
- a Dynapack (wheels disconnected, directly on the hubs)
- a Superflow 4wd

Is a dynapack a loaded dyno/steady state?
What gives better results? What is better for the car (diff, shafts, etc)
What is faster in terms of loading and unloading the car?

Thanks,

Osama

Dynapack. They are steady state, might take a tiny bit longer to get hooked up (pull wheels and throw adapters on instead of roll on and strap down), but you won't get wheel spin on the dyno.

Don't know much about superflow, heard a lot of bad but it was all 3rd party and biased.
Dynapack makes a very good setup, highly consistent, highly sensitive to small changes, simulates real-world load. Takes 10 minutes to set the car up, but remember to open your doors before pushing the pod to the hub.

I am biased as I have never heard of superflow, I recommend the dynapack over any other dyno options you might have though. If you have access to a dynapack I highly recommend it for the reasons mentioned by Ben.
Don't forget to open your doors as Ben said or take the top off so you can get in and out of the car.

Dynapack. I've used DynoDynamics and Mustang, I prefer the latter.

Thanks all.

Superflow is pretty big here in Europe. I've been on this type a few times:
