Very well said with one minor correction. The socially acceptable term is little person. Other then that, right on!

Not funny... I've fallen from a stand, not over the rail but under. This is what it looks like:

[QUOTE=rcman182006;8347326]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

When I'm in the zone I will start moving the controller a bit, but when I'm playing 360 the controller turns into a steering wheel.

Theres a local kid thats 5 or 6 yrs old. Used to he put his controller up on the rail and look through his arms to see the track. His dad eventually got him to stand on a stool.

What's wrong with a stool?? There are some big tracks out there that don't have tall enough drivers stands. That extra 6-12 inches of height that the stool provides can be a big help sometimes. They are especially helpful for blind spots created by obstacles. If you want to outlaw them, you've obviously never been to a track where you need one. I've seen chairs used, tall buckets, etc... All of which are much higher than a small stool. The real question is why would you want to outlaw them??? What harm do they do?

I don't know why it is a big deal either. I'm very short and have been surrounded buy large guys and if I don't have the step stool I can only see about 70% of the track. 30% arms, bellies, radio, and whatever else the guy next to me uses. I just want to be able to see the track. I make sure and keep mine out of the way when I am done with it as well.

Come on Doogie,

Who you trying to kid? You don't need a stool to stand on, you got hundreds of buckle bunnies that would let you stand on them. I've seen the pics. True story. Lol
