TRIFECTA: Watch the turbo glow. This is part of TRIFECTA's endurance testing. What happens when we put the vehicle under extended load?

Well, we are still testing and pushing the envelope to see where the point of failure will be.

Video says it doesn't work
Yeah I guess its cool they're doing some endurance testing, but I'm pretty sure that turbo isn't supposed to be getting that hot. Those kinds of temps you're gonna see parts start to expand and I'm no engineer but I'm pretty sure the tolerances on turbos are VERY tight.

That's the point to endurance testing. To find how hard we can actually push the platform and strike a balance between performance and drivetrain longevity. No one else goes through the trouble ;)
