I have 3 machines that I test all my WSUS updates on before we make them live.  Is there a way to force the updates onto these 3 computers right away so I can test them?

The easiest way is to go to each machine and run the following command:  wuauclt /detectnow
This will short circuit the detecting/reporting in cycle.  Depending on your AU policy settings, you should see the update go through in a few minutes.
