In order to find the limits of a car, you have to cross the line to know where that line stands. On every level of driving a car, from driving a winding canyon all the way to NASCAR, the line will get crossed.
With the long and wide landing strips, speeds can easily climb without light poles, guard rails, cars or other people in the way. The road course was one of three challenges the cars faced at the event. The location allowed the cars to really stretch their legs in a safe environment and see what they are capable of.
Speedtech Performance had one bad ass Nova competing in the event, nicknamed “RessurXion,” that headed to auction earlier this year. Before the car headed to auction, the suspension was off road tested, but not intentionally. We see the Nova going through the gears on the track, making quick work of the cones. With the first lap complete, the driver really starts pushing the limits of the Nova, getting a hair loose in a few corners.
After shifting gears and heading into a long lefthand turn, the rearend breaks loose and starts to come around on the Nova. The driver reacts but it’s too late and the car is spinning like a top, right into the grass. The car bounces around violently, but the driver is unharmed. After figuring out where he’s at, he heads back to the tarmac. Scuffing off the tires and making sure the car is fine, he puts the pedal to the metal and finishes his laps.
While the suspension was most likely never intended to leave the pavement, you could say it’s now off road approved!
