Photo from customer that was doing a GTECH meter 1/4 mile test and locked up his brakes, skidded for several hundred feet and hit a tree.
This photo is from around 2002 or so, when a customer was doing a 1/4 mile test to see how fast his car was with the GTECH meter. At the end of the testing, somewhere around 90 miles an hour it looks like he locked up his brakes and skidded for a VERY LONG ways, off of the street and then hit a tree straight ahead.
Whenever we look at this photo, we wonder why he couldnt have turned a little to the left, or right in order to avoid the tree.
Anyways, onto the photo: (be sure to scroll down to see the length of the perfect skid marks from both left and right tires)
