    HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!! Everytime I've seen a chassis dyno in use, they will hold only do a quick power pull.....usually hold it around 3-4000ish, then nail it for just a few seconds, to get their readings. I have a feeling that what they were doing in the video wasn't good on the dyno, I doubt they're made for that kind of sustained high RPM.

    Ouch!

    Seemed like a case of portable dyno-abuse, though.
