when i took my '09 in for a dyno run, i had seen several street rods on the dyno on different occasions

the tech put all these heavy duty straps from the floor to the Ram
he kept tightening the straps more & more, i watched the truck getting lower & lower, then he started the truck, put it in gear & let it roll a bit, then checked the straps again

then he started the test run, all seemed to go pretty normal

then he turned on all the machines & made the first run, i thought he was going to blow the engine & each time the Ram shifted, it would sort of squat & then raise back up like it was going to launch
It was quite an experience
the 2nd run was even better, as the charts showed

i could not figure out why he didn't manually shift it & do a run
they did manual shifts on all the street rods with automatics
