Turbo Beast Sucks In A Cloth Rag During Dyno Pull

Strapping a performance car to a dyno is much like trying to cage a blood-thirsty lion. Sometimes its works, but other times the car will revolt and cause significant damage to a workshop, dyno or even itself. That’s exactly what happened in this case.

It’s not known where this video was filmed or what exact make and model is sitting on the dyno but one thing is abundantly clear; it’s very powerful. Just a quick look at the mammoth turbocharger protruding out of the engine bay tells you all you need to know.

However, for some strange reason, employees at the workshop where the car was being dynoed failed to properly clear the area around the car. So, when the car reached peak boost, the turbo decided to suck in a rag placed on top of a printer roughly four feet away.

As the person behind the wheel continues to floor the throttle, you can see the rag slowly float towards the turbo. Before long, it’s been sucked in, ripped to shreds, and the car’s engine appears to pay the ultimate price.

It isn’t known how much damage was done to the powertrain but there’s a very important lesson to be learned from witnessing this carnage; clear the area around a dyno before conducting any power runs!
