Topic: Our wheel fell off at NCM, plus Alfa smoke show

Here is a fun clip that in the span of one lap shows the worst smokeshow I have ever drive through when the blue Alfa blew up something, followed by our losing our left rear wheel in the chicane at turn 1.  This is from the black e36 from Hard Reset and 3PM, with me driving.

The little scream is the best part...

Apparently my name is really "Craigers".  Who knew?
We might be yellow, but at least we are slow
I'm a WINNER!

Apparently we're not alone in this unique failure...

I haven't asked for a residual yet, but replacement axles and hubs are already on their way.

When I'm home this evening, I'll post pics of the sheared axle and brake rotor...

He's a new man now, part of the machine,
His nerves of metal and his blood oil.
The clutch curses, but the gears obey,
His least bidding, and lo, he's away.

That's not me, it is the right front tire locking up as I tried to brake.  If it makes you laugh though, keep thinking of it as me screaming like a 6 year old girl.

I'd say be thankful it didn't happen in Turn 5!

Totally! We were going an indicated 110 on the approach to 5, that's a lot of inertia if it fell off there.

Once of our drivers was in the Pizza Planet pickup and have video of you losing your wheel. I will put it up on YouTube. Do you mind if i use some of your video of your driver when you lose it? Ill send you the link when its done.
