    fast tire change

    I saw this and could believe how fast they are. I wonder how long it would take them to do my timing belt water pump etc.?

    The Ferrari is Italian and the Miata is Japanese. I'm guessing 3 days. Don't forget,after one tire change that army of Italian tire changers sit down for an hour or so. Do the math,3 days sounds about right. Don't forget the Ferrari only has one large nut holding the wheel on,it would take them over an hour just to figure out what socket size to use on the Miata.

    Red Bull did it faster and they get bummed out if it goes as long as 2.5 seconds.

    They can fly too,remember Red Bull gives you wings

    I'm more impressed with Nascar tire changes/ pit stops. Compared to F1,there are 1/3 as many people over the wall. The wheel and tire weigh at least 5 pounds more than F1, the wheels take 5 lug nuts instead of one PLUS the driver gets a fresh drink bottle and the car gets filled up with SUNOCO fuel. Not counting time in and time out the better Nascar crews get all that done in less than 13 seconds.

    Hey,sometimes they change two,sometimes four. You seen the price for a set of tires for a cup car ???? 15,000 plus PER SET.

    That makes the 700.00 per set for our shitboxes look like a bargain,even if they only last a whole weekend.

    They get some money depending on how they finish but it's not as much as you'd think. First place gets you one free set,second and third pay about 35% and 25% of the next set. After that they get nutting honey.

    I'll get you some,if you win the regional finals you get a free set. If you win the Nationals you get 2 free sets and a hand full of cash if you got a Mazdaspeed sticker on the nose. Sunoco will give you 250.00 if you win the regionals, 500.00 for the Nationals........... ....lets get them stickers on BOY !

    Don't worry about the costs to drive in those races,besides the stickers are good for 7whp according to the virtual butt dyno.
