Invisible holes

You're screaming down a dirt track pushing 70 when out of nowhere a hole pops up and grabs one of your tires. The resulting shock makes you wonder how the entire wheel assembly didn't fly through the quarter panel and rip your truck in half. Sound familiar?

I was running down a road I have driven a thousand times with four different trucks. Today I found a hole I have missed forever. Only hit it with my front wheel but it tested that suspension. With the noise it made I thought for sure it popped my tire.

So nothig wrong I just wanted to share.

My old car was an 04 quattro a4 fully modded on 19's... I was taking a sharp turn when midway through the turn found a new big pothole from the rain... Lets just say it cost me a new tire, wheel, and alignment. I am just happy that I pulled through the skid after I hit it! I miss that car it was a beast with the awd. Some lucky shmuck is driving it around not knowing its full potential. (it had a chip in it that was flashed so I left it turned off when I sold it to the stealership.)
