Heh, where?

Right behind the driver, it's out of a front wheel drive Toranado. That's a 60s phone.

As speed builds, the centrifugal force generated by the tire's rotation "unwraps" the sidewall, returning the energy to the car's acceleration. Additionally, it causes the tires to expand radially, increasing their diameter and effectively creating a taller gear ratio, allowing a higher top speed with the same transmission gearing.


Awesome! Had no idea.

$2,500 in 1909? That's some serious cash.

The online inflation calculator only goes back to 1913, but $2,500 in 1913 would be $61,042.68 today

Rod Hall is the only one to have raced in all 24 Baja 1000 races, winning 24 class wins and one first overall.
Next year he plans on going for his 25th win, despite being diagnosed with Parkinson's, and being 79 years old.

That's awesome.

That kind of racing is brutal, on man and machine.

I remember reading about Rod Hall and Ivan Stewart in Off-Road magazine when I was an early teenager.

I remember when Popdigr bought an old International Scout about that time. I was gonna race that Scout in the Baja 1000.:devil:
