    Shot flames out the back right when losing traction, think he accidently downshifted or just clutched in or what?

    Not sure why those flames shot out like that but he was definitely going way too fast for that turn on drag radials. The flames could be from him letting off the throttle.

    Yea bad spot to be racing too. I would have braked as much as possible while straight then clutched in before turning I think if I did get into that situation though if I had a manual.

    I'd wager he got caught up in the moment since he was going too fast, downshifted too far, causing the rear to kick out like that.

    Straight line guys trying to turn corners. If he would have let off the brakes and counter steered he could have saved it.

    radiator overflow is still intact as is the PCV valve. so he can get a couple dollars back on his considerable investment.

    That guy has no business with that kind of power. Seemed under the influence. Flames shot out because he was higher RPM, then upshifted, and he has no cats. Obviously a straight piped boosted (whipple from the looks of it) gt350.

    It looks like his brake lights werent on until he was very sideways. definitely should have let off earlier and braked before the turn

    You are right. In order to get sideways he must have been on the gas and then he made it worse by nailing the brakes.

    Such a weird wreck. Also looks like he was turning into the slide right before he hit the guardrail.

    He has to be impaired.

    something happened when he let off, I think he may have let off the gas at like 8500 RPM in the turn without clutching in , which caused hard rear tire braking, overloading the rear tires in the turn and it went bad after that. Hard to tell though but I think it can be analyzed
