Yup. Guy in the seat driving the car, but the drive wheels are on rollers. Have you ever gotten your car's emissions tested?

Rumor has it that was up here at the fairground about 2 years ago. Next weekend is the annual event again.
I wonder if the straps just get stressed too much and are only able to withstand X amount of dyno runs before they let go. Hmmmmm. Supposedly that car only made around 400 HP on the engine with some more on the bottle.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

I think some dummy just didn't hook them up right. I've watched 1600hp cars jump straight up and the straps still don't break.
