Re: Drag Racing Mishap..

It's quite amazing how the rear left wheel popped off,could have been a lot worse.

Why is it every time they film one of these mishaps the person with the camera takes a good shot of the ground.

Re: Drag Racing Mishap..

Now that's a sign of grunt, I would asume with a vehicle like that that they wouldn't be skimping on the rear end, but thing's do break in this sport and when they do, they do in a BIG way.
