Awesome vid!, but I imagine the results would have been totally different if he had hit something solid along the path of that wild slide.

A very good point that needs to be made. Imagine if that had been on a public road.

Saw a Corvette on the parkway during the commute up to school today. Was going maybe 80 70-80 miles an hour, with a guy in a Maxima (bah) chasing behind him. The speed limit was 45-50. Have fun with that...

Looks like either the tire blew, rim broke, or maybe the driver'* side of the axle broke. IMO
