    dog Attack

    A dog attacked my Emaxx. During the aftermath I realized my one rear tire now has a flat spot. I run Proline Road Rage tires on stock mounted Desparado tires. It feels like one part of the wheel doesn't have foam there. The dog didn't shread the tire, its still intact without any holes, but the drive has been affected. Anyone able to explain what happened? The car is now "bouncy" on that one tire when driving it, " I tried to drive it out " but nothing happened and the "flat" spot is still there

    Probably squeezed the tire hard enough to push the foam around inside the tire. You might be able to work it out by squeezing the tire with your hands.

    Oh, let this be a lesson learned folks, avoid driving your emaxx around when there's people you don't know with dogs you don't know; the dog ran suddenly jolted right to my emaxx quickly enough for the owner to loose grasp of the leash. For some odd reason my emaxx really ticked the dog off. Luckily the owner got the dog off quickly.

    That is a 1973 Nissan Skyline. Cool cars, and never brought here. The GTR is the closest thing.

    One of these cost me a tire:

    It wasn't chasing or being chased, the truck was sitting and the "pup" wanted to play more. ERBEs seem to be dog magnets.
