What's the best way to get the tires off the rims quickly? Not by running the thing at 200 miles per hour on the dyno and having them explode, we're quite sure. That's what happened to a twin-turbo F-body Chevrolet Camaro with 1,800 horsepower at the wheels as it was being prepped for the Texas Mile, when the drag radials decided they would rather die.
The dyno run actually took place two years ago, but according to YouTube poster "High Tech Corvette" it is only now being seen, and its explosive action has now gone viral. The car is owned by Kelly Bise and tuned by Late Model Racing, and when it ran in the 2012 Texas Mile, it was called the world's fastest Camaro in the standing mile. When it ran again this year, things didn't go so well Bise crashed during his run going more than 200 mph. He emerged without injury.
There are three videos below: the dyno video is first, followed by this year's crash, and then the 2012 run showing how things are meant to go.
