Looks like his car is producing a 'Bart Simpson' results curve on that chart.

Talk about an idiot. First of all, the motor that he's puttin in it looks like its got about 400000 miles on it.

Then this guy caves his friggin tail gate in with another truck to get it up the hill, and sets the friggin hood on the roof.

This guy is almost as bad as the guy in the drag racing thread-

I think it's cool. I wouldn't mind making my own chassis dyno. I'm not ashamed to say I've halfazzed thought about it. All you need is a couple drums to spin and a way to provide resistance. I don't think air brakes would provide a constant resistance. When the brakes heated up they would fade and allow the motor to push it faster. I think a hydraulic system would work best. Say a single or pair of torque converters to act as "brakes". It doesn't need to measure actual HP, just increases or decreases in power. It'd be nice to tune and know if you're getting more or less power.
I think if I was that guy I'd be strapping things down a bit more though.
