Trainer calibration and possibility to cheat

Today I was calibrating my Tacx trainer and it occurred to me that would it be possible to cheat on Zwift by having the roller “too loose” - just on the limit of not slipping? Or is there some mechanism to this that would prevent this already?

And by cheating I’m more meaning “having unrealistic results”.


There are many different ways to cheat.

But you’re only cheating yourself.

Well, obviously; may the force be with you etc but I was more after if that actually is a cheat or working the another direction.

My direct drive should arrive any day now.
