    There are no details here. The question is, what he did to make it do that? Is it really possible that it could happen on its own without direct human modification of systems. He has all kinds of crap wired into the car to bypass the safety systems.

    Exactly, and I bet he could get the same results with a ford or chevy. I'd like to see them do this same "testing" to other makes.

    He could easily jumps two wires from 2 terminals, from the car circuit board, that are supposed to be critical that if contacted can cause acceleration and simulate (simple contact) it from outside like he did to prove. If these two terminals are close enough that can contact by moisture or humidity like he said then his test is ligit, assuming that's all he did. And the big thing is the compuper failed to stop the acceleration and show no error code. I am sure Toyota will inspect his set up so we'll have to wait and see.
