Re: Woops! (Another \"Burned\" Bronc)
All those guys over there are interested in talking about how important an extinguisher is (AND IT IS) but as an owner of a very similar vehicle I'd be more interested the VEHICLE SPECIFICS, ie what exactly caused this fire? Anyone know the owner or the guy who was asked to post them?
We might be able to prevent the need to ever break out the fire extinguishers for this.....?
And yeah, I know it looks like he might have cracked his gas tank on that rock, but it would have had to have been one heell of a whack as I've come down hard on my tank before and dented right thru the stock skid to the tank..... but to actually RIP that metal would take a tremendous force...unless he had signifcant rust... and even then, WHAT EXACTLY caused it to ignite? I'm not 100% convinced about what appears to be a trail of fluid behind him? Plus exhaust gases are already spent, no? Will they in and of themselves cause fuel to ignite? I can see where the heat of the tailpipe _might_ do this, but not the actual exhaust gases.......?
Less speculation and more actual answers would help us all. And my sincerest condolences to the owner! [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
