Reason #3 you know you're a car enthusiast

Technology can be a wonderful thing, especially when it allows us to peer into the nether regions of our vehicles. We've already seen some pretty interesting views of a vehicle's suspension at work both on an autocross course and during a drag strip launch, but we've always been fairly curious about how a front tire copes with the demands of braking and turning throughout a lap around a demanding road course.

Now we can quit our wondering. Lee Alexander took the time to strap a Replay XD to the suspension of his Radical Ventures Stohr DSR while bombing around Road Atlanta. The shot gives us a great view of just how much a tire deforms under track abuse, and getting to watch the rotor cycle through extreme temperatures is pretty fantastic, as well.
