I participated in the bus rodeo for work today. Last year i placed first in my class. This year i dont think i did so hot. Don't have the results yet.

You may be asking your self, what the hell is a bus rodeo ? Well, its a timed obstical course that you drive a 35ft bus through. Its full of tight turns, back-up parking, slalom, and stuff like that. they even go as far aa having regionals and a national competition.

Tire analysis 101:

A perfect example of how techs like me die everyday. Any guesses as to what happen here? It came off this beauty...

Yeah they run in a dual setup Paul.

But these retards who drive for the DPW just destroy everything on these trucks, ESP tires! That cracking all the way around the bead of the tire is from the driver riding the brake all day. The weight of the truck + the overwhelming heat from the brakes literally causes the casing of the tire to split open. A lot of techs don't see this when taking a tire off a truck and just manhandle the tire like usual. Soon as they drop the tire on the ground to let the air out the tire blows and literally blasts off like a rocket!! Any part of your body over the top of that when it blows is literally gone along with it. Go on YouTube and search "tech killed in tire explosion" and see the horror that happens in my profession if not on your game 110% of the time. It's crazy...

But they all get paid the same amount of hours regardless of how long it takes to do their run, so naturally everyone just does it as fast a possible and gets out sooner for the same money. Bad inventive IMO!

We used to have a lot of problems with the tires on the busses doing that. It seemed to get better as we Started getting new busses with good retarders on them. We call it heat cracking when a tire does that and yea it is dangerous. Especially with a tire that has 110psi in it. The tire guy at my shop got knocked out and his hands hurt badly when overinflating a tire and it popped. Tires is a dangerous job. The bead blaster scares me every time. Be careful man!

Yup busses are another application where this happens...ESP the city buses! Anything that's stop/go all the time.

But your tech is lucky to survive, not many do!

And the bead blaster is my best friend lol!! I couldn't do my job without it. It does scare the $h!t out of everyone that's around when I use it though lol!
