Saw this a while ago. That tire deflection is crazy. If you're going through bearings a lot i'd have to say this is the reason why.

Thats cmp, needless to say, I am sure everyone can see why you go through tires like crazy at that track.

Most of the gators at CMP do not **** around. The two DEs I've done there, everybody I've talked to said to avoid driving on the inside of T11 and outside of T14 because you will be buying replacement parts.

They are terrifying. they will knock teeth out if you get on them too much...

Fwiw, someone mentioned turn 11 and 14 being worst, turn 14 was the turn in the very beginning of the video, just for reference.

T3 and T7 are really bad too. What makes them worse is that they sit below the track surface, and it can make the rear snap around if you get too far out there.

They arent all that rough though. They just like to spin you.
