That’s right, this truck was supposed to make 3,000 horsepower on the dyno, but things didn’t exactly go to plan. You’ll have to see this one to believe what happened.
YouTube channel Toxic Performance released this video showing the chaos. At the beginning, the voiceover explains the situation, but if you want to go right to the action, skip to around the four-minute mark. The truck, called Master Shredder, was built by Industrial Injection, and a large crowd quickly gathers around to see what it’s capable of doing on the dyno. It featured a 6.7-liter Cummins engine, decked out with some of the most top-of-the-line race parts available. Once the driver finally put the pedal down, things get ugly quick.
The wheels gain speed on the rollers, and we hear that diesel roaring with a fury, but a massive explosion puts a halt to the dyno session. The engine pops up into the air, parts go flying everywhere, and a gigantic fireball shoots flames in every direction. If you look closely, you’ll see the driver even gets thrown into the air inside the vehicle. He quickly jumps out of the truck and runs to safety, but you can still hear metal sheering noises in the background, as the wheels continued to spin on the dyno. It’s a miracle that he made it out of this relatively unscathed.
The amount of damage that was caused is astonishing. It broke practically every major component of the truck. Luckily, no one was seriously injured in this scary incident. Safety crews were quick to jump into action putting the fire out. It just goes to show that this amount of horsepower is nothing to play around with. One failed part is all it takes for disaster to strike.
