[VIDEO] Corvette Stingray's PDR Captures a Tire Blowout on the Highway

We knew that once Corvettes were armed with the Performance Data Recorder that YouTube would never be the same. Already we are starting to see PDR videos online and they aren’t just videos that captured on-track driving. Corvette owners are using the PDR as dash cams and it’s only a matter of time before a PDR captures a “dashcam moment” like we see coming out of Russia every day.

One Corvette Forum member had his PDR activated as he was driving on a toll road in Fort Worth, TX when a semi tractor-trailer had a tire blowout in front of him.
