The owner or operator of the dyno is responsible for strapping the car down correctly
You would have to be out of your mind to leave the front end loose on a AWD car
Also the straps they are using in the rear look like dollar bin straps lol

i don't see how the front end could be strapped down. it was right up against a wall. AWD or not they are nutty to only strap down 1 end of the car and the driver to be foolish enough and everyone else to let it start.

but i guess when you get a bunch of guys together the combined IQ does drop, i'll have to admit to that. not sure why - maybe all the male macho hormones overpower all logic at that point.

Morons....

I have to agree with you about IQ dropping when a munch of guys get together. I'm too smart for that to happen, to me, but other guys, for sure!

Hahaha, just kidding, I do it too.

you guys may have something there but i think there is an inverse relationship between IQ and HP....as HP increases, IQ decreases
