    That sound their car makes when it executes a perfect 10 nose dive off the workbench when their best friend makes surprise visit to the Garagemahal and they momentarily lose focus.

    They hate it when that happens but it won’t be their first all nighter.

    There was a race a while back when Bulldog was still active that he was live and was carrying cars. He took I think something like a c-clamp when they weren’t lookin and dropped it so they all panicked and thought he dropped a pros car. Lol
    Would have loved to see that. Now the Intimidator taking a header off the bench... yeah that’s tragic. Hope you are able to undo the damage.
    One thing I learned after learning how the pros build these things so fast, a well built and prepped car rolls SO easily! There’s always blocks of wood on the bench my cars sit on when they aren’t tucked away. The left over blocks after I cut a blank off the Awana kit blocks are perfect for this.

    Agreed. I have a couple planks of wood that are a little smaller than the car’s width. I call them car stands. The car never rolls off the table, and the wheels never touch the table.

    The Ace's can pull it off.
    A little adversity is good for a race program, keeps you hungry.
    I found a split in our pro basx car while tuning today, figured out why it wouldn't go.
    Good luck
