Re: Drag Racing Mishap..

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

Looks like he did not upgrade the drivetrain to match the engine.

Re: Drag Racing Mishap..

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