This has to be BS: right? (M5 driving around on a military runway)

Came across this on the M5board. I figure this has to be BS. Nobody is this stupid, right?

Hmmm...trespassing on Federal property and get off with a warning. Doubtful.

It looks to me as if the runway was a closed runway, in one pic you can see a fence right beside the runway, which is a no-no on a active military runway.

I'd need to know more details before I would believe that story. If he already got away with it, then why not fess up with more details.

m5board? If you search youtube, they do a TON of comparison races with exotics, so the runway has to be rented out or something.

BS!!!

the glowing brakes are photoshopped. i can do that easily.

consider this: the first side-view shot of the car, fifth shot overall (without glowing rotors) clearly shows a prominent crack on the floor directly behind the front wheel.

then the next few shots (with the glowing rotors) have the same exact crack in the same exact location. what are the odds you can do a 170-0 mph hard brake and end up at the same spot???

also, in the last couple close-up shots of the rotor, you can clearly see glowing rotor but yet the inside of the rim is pitch dark. if the rotors were really glowing red hot, wouldnt that light reflect off of the perfectly shiny rims? especially with the suspisciously clean (no brake dust) rims after a series of hard brakes.

then, the M5 (like all bmws) have vented rotors, yet you do not see the holes on the side of the rotors. even with it glowing red hot, you should still be able to see the holes in a slighly duller glow.

finally, as good as the M5's brakes are, i'm fairly sure the brakes (super heated brake fluid) would fail long before the rotors glowed like that.

The military isn't a bunch of morons. I think they would have noticed a jackoff driving his car up and down their runway and stopping to take pictures.
