But on a dyno, the wheels DRIVE the car by creating force on the ground, and the air doesn't matter much. A plane moves by creating force on the air, the wheels turning not mattering much.
And hippy, there's no way the friction is enough to stop four jet engines by simple weight and friction.... much less on a WHEEL, which is meant to alleviate friction and roll forward.
