Probably my greatest fear. Technically, nothing to fear if everything is secured properly and professionally but still. There's always something in the back of my mind imagining my car busting the tie-downs and launching forward and going through a freaking shop wall when my car is dyno'ed. Yikes!!!

yep, straps are too long, both (at least the visible ones in vid) attach in middle of rear...should be shorter straps from corners to anchor, id throw one in the middle for the heck of it...id also feel better with straps in front tying down under the car somewhere...

i'd be willing to bet that dyno has at least some anchor points built in...nothing like reading directions

+1 for my Incredible

Anyways, even though this type of thing should be easy, given enough time it could happen to anybody. Another way to look at it may be, "ZOMFG! look at how much powerz the ev0 haz!"

Further, I might suggest that the person responsible for making sure the car was secure never go sky diving.

Jeebus. I was expecting a little exaggeration in the title of this thread but it did basically just plummet off. That sucks.

Seriously. No straps on the front and just 2 tiny ones on the back at awkward angles. I think he got off easy.
