If you have ever driven circle track, when you blow a tire, it is the most normal thing in the world to punch the throttle. If you haven't, the 11 inch drop on 1100 tires and 12 in drop on 1200 rubber will give you a real challenge. The object is to pretend nothing is wrong and just keep steering and you will be fine.

I've got the same as Jack. All of my blow outs have been catastrophic tire failures. No, they weren't all firestones.  Wink
