This thing packs so much torque that the straps holding it in place quickly become maxed and, well, the event ends in disaster.

Interested in buying this pink beauty?  It’ll only set you back $269, but range might be an issue at 7.5 miles with a single 3-year-old passenger on board or just 2.5 miles with two tikes in there.

I suspected this was some kind of fake or a joke from the beginning. I mean seriously, you could see that those hard plastic tires could barely get traction to back up onto the dyno. What makes you think they’d have the traction to spin the dyno?

On the other hand, those tires should have excellent low rolling resistance properties.
