I wonder if this 'Mach 5' is ready for a second owner

Sidewall flex is real.


sidewall flex is not for wussies


this Lemans prototype probably has the lowest profile tires you will find on a racing car, and the sidewall is still way taller than the faux-Mach 5 above. Its driven by bigger brakes to make faster stopping, not because it handles better. F1 cars tires and wheels are limited by rules to limit brake size - guess what, the cars still handle incredibly.

Low profile tires on street cars are FASHION, not performance.

Good re-creation… down to the absence of seatbelts!

(I wonder how he gets away with that on Georgia’s highways?)
