Oh man, thanks for the great laughs today guys. Hilarious and I really needed them today, work has been ultra sucky. Just picturing the typical guy who is really "driving" his car is hilarious

I understand kids or "little people" needing a stand to see over a railing. But 6' tall guys claiming their transmitter hits the railing, waaaah. Move ur transmitter. ROAR should just adopt a minimum driver height-everyone's eyes have to be at 7' tall from the ground. Custom make your step stools accordingly. They will be tech'd before and after races.

Yeah Marcus, Delta was fun, had a good time. Even though I had to use one of these stools just to see around some leaners on the stand haha.

yeah, at the electric race in my 2wd 13.5 class there was someone using one right next to me, the second double right at the end of the front straight i had to lean out to see around his m11... it was not even a 3r i could have seen through that.. the m11 is the size of my b4 lol! talk about blind spot!
haha.

Its amazing how I see alot of kids that don't use a stool but all these adults need one. I'm 5'8 and have never needed a stool or high chair! If the rail is in the way I pick my arms up alittle higher. If your a midget ok but otherwise deal with what ya was born with is what I think.I don't recall Michael jordon crying cuz Patrick Ewing was closer to the basket than he was!

The next thing you will see is everyone will have to race with the same eye level to make things fair

I know a few guys that do that, including myself every once and a while, I call it being "in the groove" lol, I also do it racing on my 360 from time to time

The track i race at has a piece of tape around one of the roof suport poles for the stand and if you are over the tape no matter what you might think you can't use a stool, if you are under you the tape there is one stool on the stand and only two guys ever need it and they aren't in the same class.
