IIRC, the car was strapped down to the dynamometer (presumably for safety's sake, or to reduce rear wheel slippage, or possibly both.)
I'm curious to know if the recorded weight was as measured on the dynamometer, or as input by the operator. Does anyone know the Mustang Dyno well enough to answer this? This may have influenced the recorded weight.
