I imagine that without the catcher on the last pic, your car would be missing a fender.


"Move of the day" was when a cone got caught between the LHS exhaust and the fender. Between gates, I reached down, picked it up and tossed the cone over the roll bar behind me.

I don't have a cone catcher on the exhaust side. The exhaust does that well enough.

Nice! Just try that in your Z06 will ya. :lol:

Also known as "nerf bars". They are built more substantial when used in non-solo events.

Open wheel race cars will cart wheel over another cars tires if you run up from behind. Really dangerous if you're racing in a pack.

There's a video on the web somewhere that shows a 7 being launched. It appears that he ran up onto another car's tires. It was a pretty spectacular crash. Naturally I can't find it now.
