I am sure the track would have no problem with a rod throwing competition, as long as we keep it away from innocent bystanders.  I don't think it matters what type of rod we use as long as everyone throws the same one.  I think throwing style is up to the participant.

Where I parked last year under the grandstand seemed good.

Instead of distance, what if we have to aim for a stake in the ground, like horseshoes? laugh

Instead of a stake lets put a crank in the ground and try and send the rods home.

Barely Funtional Racing's Jaaag XJR will beat Team Stampie and his polished turd in at least 2 out of  the three scored events.  And we even have a much better custom battery hold down.  And it didn't take two years to finish.

You do realize that frenchyd isn't a judge right?

for the rod throwing competition, I think we should let competitors pick their own rod. Size, weight, aerodynamics, amount of caked-on grease, etc could all be factors in choosing the best rod. I think I can bring a toasted one out of a GSXR1000 if anyone wants to see a rod that is too small and light to throw very far.

Im not sure how far I can throw them but I have a couple of Renesis rotors...

Edit, just had a thought, yes it hurt...

It might work? And no I am not throwing a rotor, they weigh a lot.

I only have 2 rods and they both have 4.030" pistons on them. But I can bring them.

Are you trying to say we've missed a gate and are DNFing?

I have recruited a top nationally-ranked salesman to be my challenge presenter. I'm about to school those college kids on how this E36 M3 is done.

Just because he sold a line of bullE36 M3 to your mom and created you doesn't make him a Challenge presenter.
