    If you look in the pics above the video it shows the tire on the rear deck as being a "Hercules 4000"? I think 4000 was the RPM limit on those tires!! :shock: :shock:

    Look like that was a disaster waiting to happen, doing burnouts on the edge of steel plates. Dont know if the tire blew out or the plate cut it open first.

    I just hope they stop doing these burn out events before some bystander gets hurt with flying debris. That crap is dangerous and down right rediculous.
