If there’s one thing that the Street Outlaws racing machines go through, it’s tires.
At the end of the day, racing around the country on all sorts of different surfaces requires a good bit of meat underneath the car. That means spending the big bucks on making sure that you have the right rubber to get the job done, only to go and burn that rubber up in the heat of competition. It’s naturally one of the most necessary evils when it comes to spending money on a race car.
While a good amount of the rubber ends up being laid down on the racing surface, there’s a lot of it that goes other places as well. One of the struggles of owning a race car is trying to figure out how to dispose of all of the stray melted rubber that ends up stuck underneath the vehicle as well.
This time, we tune in with Daddy Dave as he gives us the rundown on exactly how much rubber ends up stuck under his race car. In addition to showing us how he gets all of the rubber out of the inner fenders and off of the car, he actually takes the time to go ahead and weigh it as he says the fans have been curious about just how much weight this is extra rubber might add.
This is definitely one of those neat behind-the-scenes videos that you’re not going to want to miss.
Dave relays “Ever wonder how much rubber builds up in the back of Goliath after all my big smokey burnouts? Well, today I’m going to show you where all the rubber builds up, how to get it off the car, and we will weigh it together to see just how much build-up there is after a few passes! Any guesses on weight? Comment down below before you watch the video.”
