I agree they are just toys, but they are a thousand dollar toys. And who ever spends thousands.... is pretty serious.


Some people do take it to another level. Especially the guys who yell at kids.

Well i'm mixed on that one. I know i would have an advantage getting to my car quickly but after i ran up and down the drivers stand 10 times in the first 2 laps, i think my advantage would be gone and so would my lungs.

In Practice I flip cars over with my feet, I do not kick the car, just put the toe under one side and lift up till it is on its wheels. During the races though I use my hands. Me personally I would rather people use their feet on my car than pick it up and hold it for 5 seconds before putting it back down. That erks me to no ends, flip it and be done. Do not pick it up then wait for the entire lane to clear before putting me back down. Put me down outside the line and let me go. I know I wrecked but why are you holding or trying to run with my vehicle around the track.

What if someone invented a special stick so you could flip em safely Maybe give it a special shape and color, and call it the Platinum Stick.

You want me to use a potential weapon to flip over a car that may have hit me at one time or another ? Prolly not a good idea.

O. K. maybe there aren't many crackheads who traded their crack habit for nitro, you see crackheads use brillo to put in a glass stem to sorta act as a filter for smoking crack...... kind of a sick humor thing, we have a little inside joke that we run where I go in a convenience store and ask " where da brillo?". LOL If the clerk is a former crackhead he knows exactly whats going on and the people who are not .... well they don't even get it.

Oh, I use AKA tire foam for that.

I'd rather drink cherry flavored Sidewinder.

Personally I could care less how you get my car back on all 4's....just do it fast.
At one race I was mashalling and there was a 3 car pile up and I only have 2 hands so it took me a little time to get them untangled. When i got done and went back to my pit Grouchy kicked me in the shin and it actually left a bruise.The other 2 racers cursed at me and Soup Nazis Manager Asked me not to ever turn marshall again. Now it seems like these guys would have understood. So I guess kicking turn marshalls is really acceptable and I learned my lesson, I have been re instated to turn marshall but I have to wear a bright orange vest that says "your name here" WTF LOL
