Is kicking and breaking the other guys car in order? no, it is not, but it does shed some light on the events leading up to the KICK!

Wonder if we could get track owners to build octagons in the pits to work problems out after the races...

where i come from if someone does this to your stuff.......you follow him out to the parking lot when he has his car and confront him about it.......meaning destroy his car into a billion little pices and see if he does it again but people who do this think its ok becaues this would have never happened if he didnt think he could get away with it then the next time he comes to the track everyone should hack the SHI% OUT OF HIS CAR so that way he will not win for a month or 2 this should get the message accross to this child that you dont do that to other peoples stuff hope this helps

Im amazed no one brought up sending a letter to his sponsors stating that the driver is giving the company a bad reputation for fostering this kind of attitude and blatant disregard for their paying customers property.

Let them whip him into shape or kick him to the curb. If I were sponsoring a driver have no doubt, the first time I heard of something like this they would lose their sponsorship, and have a public apology from the company plastered online stating that drivers like him are horrible representatives of the industry and should not be tolerated.

Having raced real cars nationally for over 10 years I can tell you that these are toys, I don't give a crap what anyone says. You might be a glorified controller jockey that the local guys all worship, or a competitive world championship racing driver. When you go to the local supermarket, no one knows who you are, no one cares, and if you told them what you did they would be amazed and shocked you could be flown around the world to race toy cars and would garnish little respect for your talent.

It is great we have this multi-million dollar industry that supports our interests. But your not going to continue to grow an industry when the drivers representing these companies at the track throw temper tantrums and discourage other participants from wanting to run at the same track or maybe even buy the products.

We try too hard to be a softer more forgiving society at times and people from time to time need to be reminded that they must answer for their actions.
If he turns out to be a sponsored driver, then his sponsor should be made aware of his actions.
And last but not least he should be invited to NOT return to the track. It has to be stopped before it goes too far,what's next pulling a knife, a gun, no, stop it now!

That WAS and IS part of my solution to the problem.

Didn't read all the posts, huh? It's been mentioned by several different people many times.

Different companies have different views on stuff like that....most would at least send a letter/email to their driver, but I know for a fact that some just don't respond at all, no matter how idiotic or public the outburst or infraction. Remember, there are three sides to every story. Your side, my side, and whatever the sponsor chooses to believe. Don't discount unsubstantiated "Revenge Complaints" from jealous competators. Sponsors owe it to the racer to at least make their own decision, not a simple blanket "One complaint and you're out".

You think people with RC cars act up.....you ain't seen nothing until you've been to some of the slot car races! That's where I've always seen the worst conduct, by far!
