Default Trans am tire management

Here's a view out the back of my trans am, with the new engine, showing tire management.

Holy--was there any rubber left? With that much power, it'd be like driving a rocket.

Watch closely near the end and you will see his left rear tire come flying out of the back.

Oh...I didn't recognize it as a tire carcass. Looked like a pile of shreds.

Think what Andy could do with this in pit lane, at the Runoffs. You think they would fine him more than his usual $100?

Stationary drifting, just the smoke, no mirrors.

The foreign labels and the photoshop paint touchup does not deter my suspicion that this is Philips new aluminum head motor shakedown for the RA runoffs....

When I saw this I was thinking about how much the drivers being passed probably appreciated driving down a straight through a cloud of smoke. I bet at least a few folks weren't sad to see the tire shred.

I think they'd tell him to go straight to impound right from the grid, without supper.
