Murder Nova Tire Shake Mayhem! Before He Worked The Kinks Out!

Posted by: Jeremy Patterson on 11/17/2021

Shawn battled tire shake issues in the Murder Nova for what seemed like ages. He’d still managed to keep he car at or near the top of the 405 Top 10 list while trying to eliminate the problem, which not only causes a loss of traction but can seriously injure the driver and damage the car.

You can see in this video just how severe the shake is when the car launches and the tires appear to actually wobble back and forth from left to right. Tire shake occurs when the tire wads itself up instead of keeping that controlled slip that makes big-tires work. The cure can be suspension-related, tire-related, or it can even be fixed by changing the power delivery.

We know Shawn has since cured his issues with shake, but before they tracked it down, it was a hell of a pain to try to drive through, as many drivers have likened it to having their helmet strapped in a paint shaker!
