That guy is lucky he didn't lose a leg!

I was waiting for the straps to let go.

I can't understand they let so many people around. Seriously.

That is pretty bad practice. I noticed there were people standing directly in front of the car too, where I come from, if there aren't crash bars, you don't stand in front of the car, period. Odds of the straps failing are slim, but if they do it would be messy if you got caught between.

+1, I saw the guy with the phone standing directly in front of the car and I was waiting to see him pinned betweem the car and the wall. I would never stand directly in front of a car on a dyno.


Them people are nuts, that room is to small for all them people to be standing in there like that.

I need to quit clicking on these links. Before I know it, I've wasted an hour looking at similar clips.

Have to admit, some of them are pretty scary.

When I dyno'd my car they wouldn't allow anyone near it. You had to be in a designated area well away from the dyno or in the car itself. Prevents trouble like that. Had that guy been seriously hurt, along with all the others you know they'd be suing the garage, the dyno company and anyone else they can think of. Who wouldn't think that a huge drum turning maybe 100mph with a car strapped to it wouldn't be dangerous?

Idiots. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWxSi...eature=related

I think that was at a high school, and it is clearly not properly strapped in front..

OK enough from me.. I need to get back to "work".

Wouldn't have been too good for him if his face landed on there.
