Figured this discussion was best off here instead of the real 'mechanical' forum:https://jalopnik.com/watch-this-dodge-challenger-hellcat-light-itself-on-fir-1838822882
Reading through Jalopnik today and come across this article/video of a Dodge Hotfireburnplace-cat on the dyno. Its clear in the video from the 3rd brake light that the driver stands on the brakes when the strap snaps (See the 3rd brake light) but in the article they post this gem:'Since the dyno keeps the car tracking straight, the car flexes under its own twisting force. In this case, the wheel and brake rotor appear to have slid sideways and come into contact with the brake pad. This is known as side loading the brakes and can lead to some spectacular failures.'
I've never heard of something more made up in my life.
Not to mention the colossal amount of other stupid in that video. (you know, like standing next to a 700+HP car on a dyno, stomping on the brakes, crappy straps, dry chem fire extinguisher, etc)
