Like I said to Mario at the end of the track, he just about gave me a heart attack. I could see the whole underside of the car, two or three times and that was close to the end of the quarter.


You really need to post some pics of those torn up whellie bar wheels! They saved your life for sure.

Good deal on getting it back out. Is th ecar getting air trapped underneath it making it carry the wheel so far down track? Chassis cars usually don't do that.

we were sitting on the hill at 300' down track watching the first round of wheel stands
so when they brought you out for a time run we had a good view of your pass
the car definitely hiked the wheels at about 1000' then the car settled down but then as you crossed the stripe it hiked the wheels again
and we seen a puff of smoke off the back of the car. at first we didn't know what it was from,
then later tom told me about your demolished wheelie wheels and then we knew that's where the smoke was from
those wheels aren't supposed to run at over 200!!!
doug told us you were hanging weight in front to keep it down
stop by the shop, I 've got an anvil here you can use!!
