thats hard to call either he tried lauching on it (normaly a dyno guy will drive the car though) or they forgot to release the dyno's rollers (most likely) or they din't tighten the strap or had a weak strap

hey thats a 20 minute phone call

your not supposed to launch on a dyno...

the most accurate hp/tq readings come from a 3rd gear pull...

exactly.

I think that he just tried to go too fast in 1st. It does however, seem like the dyno op did't take the brake off the dynos. It also looks like it wasn't securely fastened to the straps, or they did too quick a job and just strapped it to any place they could find.

look closely...his rear tires aren't on the dyno pins correctly...which means when he launched, the car inched forward and grabbed the ground rather than the pins which made the screeching tire sound rofl rofl
