I've seen pit crews pick up their car and forcefully toss (somewhat like a hard rolling push) the 1/8 car down the pit lane. Compared to just refuelling, and setting down the car to accelerate away, is this 'tossing' technique an advantage?
Is 3 seconds the basic time we need to refuel the car?
How about an extra glow/turbo plug. Don't know what rules you have for refueling. In our area, we remove the vehicle from the pit lane, refuel it and put it back in the pit lane. The process requires about 3 to 4 seconds.
