They need more people on the starting line.
Bunches in South Georgia and always in that lane. Steve Jackson did it along with Dwayne Mills and several others. There used to be a combined picture of four cars that had flown like that. Putting the pictures side by side, they were airborn in almost the same attitude. It has been my belief that lane somehow funnels air, but usually they fly farther down track.Anybody ever seen cars take flight like at South Georgia?
wheelie bars unload the rear tires when using a stiff sidewall radial-way different than running slicks and wheelie barsI am surprised they haven't done anything like mandating wheelie bars (even 3' off the ground). You have cars taking flight, imagine if one went into the bleachers.
I returned to re-watch the launching wondering how it got so dam airborne?.... That car got fully airborne in amazingly short distance. Old Don Garlits looks to have gone airborne at 1/8 mile:wheelie bars unload the rear tires when using a stiff sidewall radial-way different than running slicks and wheelie bars
