What Happened After This Mustang Tire Explosion On Dyno At 150MPH Is Just Mind Blowing
How about buying a 2014 Ford Mustang GT and get it totalled a month later. The car was never involved in a car crash but it looks like the rear left part is missing. If someone tells you that he got his car totalled on a dyno, are you going to believe him? We don’t think so. But here is an example of how you could really damage your vehicle really hard while running it on the dyno.
The guy from the video bought a 2014 Ford Mustang GT. The car is equipped with a 32-valve 5.0-liter engine also known as the “Coyote” engine. It produces 412 horsepower and 390 lb. ft. of torque. The car from the video got the 6R80 6-speed automatic transmission installed. As you might already know the guy decided to modify his Mustang and wanted to know the exact amount of horsepower in its current setup.

There was a mechanic driving the car on the dyno and he was shifting through the gears. He was running the GT at fifth gear trying to reach the redline when suddenly something bad happened. This fifth generation Ford Mustang got its rear left tire exploded causing all kinds of damage. It was a very scary accident by the way as everything happened on a portable dyno with lots of people around.
Later the owner of the poor totalled Ford found out that the guy was in charge of controlling the dyno did a top speed test instead of a horsepower amount test. The accident might be due to a wrong tire rating, old tires or a mechanical fault.
We hope that the insurance will cover everything in this case. It all happened at a drag race event with all cars equipped with special tires that appear to be slightly under-inflated.
