  3. when I was in we would see a lost track 3 or 4 times a year when you loose a track you loose all control it's not fun at road speed saw an M-60 that lost one and went through a farmers barn Killed the farmer and his daughter Sad. I have seen a few like that but nothing the driver can do but cut the power and hang on Think about being on a mountain road and you through a track Patten lost a few like that in Italy
