Full story here,
https://www.bayarearidersforum.com/m...534070&page=20

but yeah according to Eric he was about to break out so he slowed down and gave it too much front brake and tucked the front. You can see where he braked on the tire on the picture on the WND thread. The drag strip is just COATED in rubber and I guess it makes it real easy to either wheelie or endo.

And NO I lost by .0855 seconds! It's was a very close race and with a spectacular ending. In the end I got eliminated and Eric eliminated himself by crashing.

They are Powermadd handguard mirrors installed on Tusk D-Flex handguards. They also swivel out, I fold em in for the trail or race track. They are about $20. Powermadd also sells handguards that actually mount with these, but I had the Tusk ones already so I used em =)
