Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

[snip] End of the run, this issue is starting to sound very familiar [/snip] Sounds similar to what can happen at the end of high-speed drag strip runs. I was once told, rightly or wrongly, that it was related to weight shift and aero destabilising the vehicle during the initial deceleration moment...

Richie, I know what happened and it is firmly my fault.

It was a nested quote (a quote inside a quote), so when snipping out the main bulk, I must have removed the wrong quote tag.

Oh deary...... I managed to read through most before it was locked out, all screen grabbed and IP harvested. As funny as it was to read, I am genuinely concerned at the amount of time he spends monitoring everything that is said and done here, it is exceptionally unhealthy. I also noted the amount ...
