Mustang Tire Explodes On The Dyno
We have dyno tested and tuned hundreds of cars at the Brothers Performance Deland facility and we have to admit to an occasional oil spill here and there and a radiator hose burst once or twice – but we have never seen anything like a tire exploding on the dyno!
That’s because we inspect all cars before we test them – we inspect everything under the hood to make sure it is in tip top shape and that includes all belts, hoses and a check for any fluid leaks beforehand.
Probably one of the most important checks we make are the tires – we check for any nails, screws or debris but the most critical are the tire’s speed rating!
We require all high performance cars to have a minimum of a ZR rating which is a tire rated to go to 149mph before we will dyno a car here at Brothers Performance.
When a car is on the dyno, most high cars will hit 150mph very quickly and if the tires are not properly rated then there will be a price to pay – damage to the car and possible injury.
In this video you will see what happens when a tire fails due to prolonged speed on a dyno probably in excess of 160MPH – this is was an expensive dyno test – something we hope to never see at our chassis dyno and installation center here in Deland
This clip from 1320video shows, right around the 35-second mark, the tire goes boom, and takes out most of the rear clip in the process.
The bumper is trashed, and the rim is ready to be scrapped, and the mangled metal inside the wheel well shows just how destructive tire rubber can be. Given there didn’t seem to be any safety precautions in place here, it’s a good thing nobody was hurt when it popped.
2011, 2012 Ford Mustang GT 5.0L Short Tuned Length Exhaust Headers & After Cat X Pipe – Installation & Dyno Test Video
These Headers are as always direct bolt on and do not require any modifications. At the end of the video they will show the dyno test results. Add a BBK throttle body and a performance cold air kit and you will really feel an even bigger difference.
The Parts used in this video are as follows:
BBK 2011,2012 Ford Mustang GT 5.0L Shorty Tuned Length Headers – Chrome – Part # BBK-1632
BBK 2011,2012 Ford Mustang GT 5.0L Shorty Tuned Length Headers – Chrome – Part # BBK-16320
BBK Performance 2011, 2012 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 50 state legal after cat X Pipe Part # BBK-1460
Camaro or Mustang – which car will make the most horsepower and torque – watch this new BBK video and see which car wins our product test and dyno shoot out using basic bolt on performance parts.
Here at Brothers Performance we help owners of today’s performance EFI American muscle cars get the most out of their favorite vehicles. In this ALL new video see what happens when we bolt on some basic essential performance parts like a BBK Performance Power Plus Throttle Body and BBK Cold Air Intake system as well as a set of BBK CNC series full length long tube BBK headers and x pipes. All these parts are easy to install and result in some really good power gains as you will see. But who will win that is the question, watch and find out. Please feel free to leave your comments
