this is a true question . Why is it that some racers will spend 50k to go fast in a 10.5 car but not 5,000 to be safe in one ????????

I've done some pretty stupid stuff. Hopefully we all learn before it's too late. As we all know, sometimes stuff just happens,
but that doesn't mean we should push our luck, or go looking for it.

this comes from a local series going 1/8 becasue the cars need a new chassis cert and alot of the guys "can't afford" the chassis update BUT THEY CAN FUCKING SPEND 10,20,50K ON NEW MOTORS TO TRY TO CATCH THE LEADERS IN THE CLASS . Dont make a bit of sence to me .

goal #1 pass tech at the local track....then its safe enough right?
It sure would suck to get hit by some dumb ass who spent all his money on going fast instead of safety. Wiping your car out in the process.

I'm sure plenty share your opinion....

Then there are those that don't....

I'd rather be safe and live to race another day
