In past segments of our “Loose As A Goose” series, we looked at the real reasons why many cars get bent out of shape on the launch.  Some, of course, become so twisted, they’re downright scary to drive (amusing for those in the stands, however).  Unfortunately, scary to drive and quick elapsed times are almost […] Read More
