I ran 5.29 and 33" tires for e-tests and it usually took the full test but always passed. Since going back to 30" and 4.10 both tests have kicked out after about 30 seconds saying it meets Fast Pass criteria.
Looks like to me that the tester doesn't do anything special, he seems shifts like he's driving it, shifting whenever he feels like it. Although maybe (just maybe) they avoid lugging it because part of the passing requirements is they have to follow the speed line some minimum amount of the time and our junk probably has trouble doing that if the RPMs are too low.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
