Wow, hope he's OK. I'm not going to judge him, but that sucks! He'll just have to part it out, and pay off the difference if financed. Man when I hear that "POP" noise, I hurt!

What car was he barely beating before he lost control? At least the other car got past the crash before it happened.

If you read the youtube video description, using the little Spanish I know, it happened at a track in Guadalahara New Mexico



EDIT: Also a good reason to leave Traction Control ON for the first few times!

Yea looks like an oil or water spot, lost traction and since the system was off the back end came out. It could happen to anyone really even a pro.

If the car didn't encounter, lets say a slick spot, would a good quick burnout have helped by heating the tires if stabilitrack (or other electrical supports) were turned off??

Dearly beloved, we ask for a moment of silence and to lower all flags to half staff in memory of this fallen Camaro SS. May he rest in eternal peace, and for ever with the other numerous 5th generation wrecks which have preceded him as discussed in other threads posted on this forum.

They perrished from this earth far too soon. :(

Yeah but why would you keep the hammer down like that with no traction off the line? Makes little sense. Maybe if all of a sudden the wheels rebroke loose again and did that I'd be a little more understanding.
