I see why some brakes are harder on wheel finishes than others now.

Wow. That poor kid in the 133 car must have had to clean up the seat afterwards.

That 133 car is doing the same thing my dad's 87 Si was doing about 2 seconds before he put it shiny-side down at an autox in Milwaukee...

The PBR Axis Ultimates I have in the back have destroyed my M edition wheels.

I wanna know how the Mustang got one wheel so high in the air, I thought our cars were flexible but thats just crazy.

Those are some crazy pics. Wtf is up with that mustang? I've seen a few three wheelers locally (a Nissan Sentra Spec-V does them stock!), but nothing as crazy as those pics.

That Mustang looked like it had slicks on + they were HUGE. The rain pics are pretty amazing. Hell of a downpour to try to race in. Lot's of fun corner working in that!

I was there when that happened. Was scary and seemed to happen in super slo-mo. At another event another firefly on either RA-1 or Azenis did the same thing.

What is up with the cars that are lifting the rear wheels???? Is that really just from braking, or do you think they hit a bump to help the lift?

I think that is due to a bump on the course up in Milwaukee or somewhere. I have seen pics of another car doing the same thing a while back.

If they still run at Milwaukee Stadium up there, it's completely flat.

It's Miller Park now with a new parking lot, the county stadium is gone. I have yet to go to an event there but they do still take place.

Been awhile I suppose.

The accident I mentioned was back in '95, and that was the last time we went. My mom was pissed.

Always hard to beat the carnage that happened here in Portland a couple years ago. GT3 crossed the finish then proceeded to continue at speed into the parking lot. Luckily no one was hurt. Lots of ways to screw up in autox.






Then of course there are the four wheels falling off that RX7 video. LOL. I love that one.
