Default Nice race tire flex video

Sorry if this has already been posted, I don't view all videos here. My officemate showed me this and I had to share.

nope- hadn't seen it. That is badass. Shows how well the suspension works too. I love australian touring cars- how stock car racing should be.

That was very good timing for me as I have been doing some reading up on handling balance and driving techniques so that I can become a better driver ... and well one of the more interesting topics to come up is the contact patch and how it changes with weight transfer. Was cool to see it in action.

I hate speed channel. I used to watch it all the time, now all they show is Nascar (HATE IT!) and that dumb *** life on the block show. I used to like the Barret Jackson when it was on once a year, screw it everyday.

Same here. Horray for Toyota though, getting in on the cup cars.

This stuff does come on, just at way off hours- like when most are a sleep or at work.

They won't be successful, their motors will die midrace from engine sludge.
