  • Almost wrecked the SVT, Caught on Video!

    For anyone who has missed it, i almost wrecked the SVT twice at Carlisle at the Friday evening autocross event. This season has been rough, with issues/breakages at every event so far. Here is the Carlisle video first then some of my other videos with some screw ups as well.

        At the end of the video, one of the wires had torn from hitting the tire to the right front ABS sensor. I wasnt expecting my ABS to not work, so i went into panic mode and floored the brakes. The track this year was covered in stones, so not optimal for autocross.
