I do think a dyno is a liability defcit. Having a serious malfunction with out the benefit of having a TDI knowledgable garage on site, ie. Wis fest, is paramount. The Fest is not really to show off muscle that should be left to local GTGs.

A dyno is less abusive than starting from the stop light when it turns green.
The clutch is already engaged, the wheels are already rolling, there is no driveline 'shock'.
One gear is used for the pull, there is no shifting. (automatics might shift, but the ECU/TCU controls this to the same conditions as used daily).
There is no steering input, no angular load on C/V joints.
There are no potholes, no speed bumps, no changes in suspension load.

Any car that has "a serious malfunction" on rollers was not in any condition to have been driven TO the rollers.

Amen!

We're not driving 1,000+ HP Toyota Supras here... if someone's car blew up because the dyno operator floored it, then it shouldn't have been driven there in the first place.
