Good thing he was racing by himself.

If I had to go aginst him in the other lane I would just let him pass.

nuts you should have to do some kind of road test to drag race.. like prove you know what your doing.. just like driving a car on the road:rolleyes:

thats just sad he had time to save that :confused::rolleyes: but stayed in the throttle.. owell if the tires were that gripy why would you bother burning out:rolleyes:

looks like there was a problem with his front tires. or the track. seems strange to me I have never had a burn out push locked up front tires like that. ha ha ha

i bet he got the front tires nice and wet driving through the burn out box like he did and it wouldnt hold it.

also agree that he probably didnt need a burn out at all..

That track looks awful.

I concur... that track didn't appear to have water box. The truck looked like it had drag tires on it. The driver didn't understand that you need to take your foot off the gas when things are not working right. And the track crew should have been banging on his side window to get him to shut down.

In general, not a good situation all around.

never come off throttle with slicks once the rear ends upset, the sidewall will stiffen and you'll get weight transfer almost insuring a loss of control

instead one should half throttle slicks when rear traction has been upset

Looks like he half throttled it right into the wall. All the guy needed to do was let off the gas and back it up :rolleyes:

Sorry, Didnt mean to doublepost links above. I usually check them. Here is the other one I was trying to post. I cant imagine having to look the other guy in the eye after smashing into him. Im guessing after an accident like this each driver just collects his pile of scrap metal and goes home? Meaning that since it happened on a private race track you cant be held liable can you? Even if they were to file a suit against you? Just curious...

Z, No I had never seen that wheelstand of the Mustang you linked. That looked like a wild ride. It also looked like that guy knows how to drive seeing as how he actually kept it out of the wall!!

first video track looked horrible, i'd never run any car on something like that. It shouldn't even be open. Second video wow, that just would suck. Thats another reason i think really hard about racing,cause not only could i mess up, but someone else just as easy could crash into me.

I like that they just let him continue on like its no big deal that he just drove himself right into the wall.

I don't think the first video is in the USA.
