Never done or seen a dyno, what is done?

Doing one, will it produce additional strain on a vehicle (ie clutch, engine), than normal driving?

there is a local club doing Dyno runs this month, with a minimum of 3 runs, was considering checking it out if it does no harm.

Should be no issues if it is done correctly. Your Maserati engine was run up to and back from the redline in the factory. I've seen the engine test room "in action"...and oh, what a wonderful sound... :)

I've had my bikes dyno tuned and I think it's the same. They have a fan in front of it to give cooling to the radiator, then slowly wind it up to 4th gear just off idle, then pin it till it won't rev anymore. The sound is glorious and I highly recomend filming, but I wouldn't do that every day.

No, you're fine to dyno it. In the Supra community which I also take part of there are cars that are built and the owners never drive them or race them, just put them on the dyno and put down their quad digit numbers.

As long as you have a competent operator, you're just fine. There are a few bad habits that some shops who don't know better can do to cause some strain, but even then... I've never seen any real damage done that can be attributed to a dyno run directly.
