Those who run their car on a chassis dyno have to put a lot of faith in a couple of nylon straps, because that's all that's keeping the car from launching itself and its driver sometime into the middle of next week. So what happens when a 1200 HP car burns through the tie-downs due to its exhaust routing? See for yourself (be kind and right-click-save-as). Chalk it up to the influence of your favorite diety or just plain dumb luck, but it's amazing that no one got hurt. The amount of cheering is a bit disturbing. [Hat tip - Patrick]
