I was adjusting my toe today and noticed my tie rods are only on a few threads... I guess that's what happens eh?

Saw your car on the hook this aft....
On the radio it came over as a "directional issue"

You around on Sunday?

I was wondering about the tire. It didn't look solid at the beginning of the vid.

Looks like the nut hit you in the helmet at the 6 second mark.

Holy crap it did.

That whole straight with no steering. Had an angel looking over you for sure.

Did the bolt snap? Definite fastener failure.

It was actually a bushing the hit me...then fell in my lap. You get hit by so much crap in a race you don't really pay attention anymore.
I was so focused on the guy ahead...and I knew I could get a second or two on him on the straight.
If it happened anywhere...this was the best spot.
I still had steering...the other side was okay...I just didn't have traction.
Geoff...that is how we torture those poor Falkens...you should see the sidewall action at the exit of T10.
It was a grade 8 bolt that failed...but...it seems that it was poorly installed and over torqued. Surprised it lasted that long.
