Default Nurburgring engine simulator

I had not heard of Porsche doing this before until I stumbled across this video. It is apparently a Porsche engine running on an engine dynamometer, but with a twist, well two twists actually. The engine dyno is actually a two-axis gimbal that tilts the motor to simulate the g-load seen by the engine while on the track.

Is that awesome or what?!

Thats ******* bad ***! I have never seen anything like it. Well except it reminds me of that creepy robot band things at Chucky Cheese. Expect I like this music better.

PS, when a race team does that, you know they are serious.
