Default Has a car ever...

got up and walked off the dyno when they were testing it? i know they strap the cars down and everything, but we all know that there has to be atleast 1 video out there somewhere of a car that jumps off the dyno. any body heard of this, or even know where one is at?

I've heard it but never seen video. Guess most people don't bring their vid to the dyno.

I have a few videos of cars getting damn close "walking" off due to high torque.

when my dad had his 92 vette it was pretty cool to watch the vette slide back and forth due to the traction control system and the front wheels not spinning while the rears were.
