Just trying to picture a 15 foot long one of these..

Somebody with photoshop skills should do one of those Halsey ads where he's standing next to it with a look on his face :shock: .

I just did a once over in the ROAR rules and as I suspected, front wings are legal. My wife says she thinks that cab forwards came out because somewhere someone read that she does not like them, LOL (Referring to when she was ROAR President).

From what I understand is that many feel as though a front wing is a band aid that can be done in the suspension tuning. Or at least that is how I understood it... Till the cab forward bodies came out that is, So much for that nonsense! :mrgreen:

I hated them when they first came out and I can't say I totally like the looks of them, but in racing if it enhances performance, then looks really do not matter as long as it makes the car faster. That is the simple fact of the matter.

I'm NOT one of those people that race because its fun... A race's only goal is to get first place... Not second or third, tenth or 50th. Ayrton Senna once said "You must take the compromise to win, or else nothing. That means: you race or you do not" Or in other words, you race to win, if you are not racing to win, then you are not racing. I do not get "I only race to have fun" So if a body makes my car faster... I'm all for it as long as its within the rules. :)

Are you assuming there is some hidden message there? I think it's clear. If you take it as meaning something different, that's on you, not me, :)

Yeah, I think he wasn't sure if you were in a race to win or not :lol: :mrgreen:

as much as I hate those cab forward designs, it's perfectly clear WHY they are used: they provide a racing advantage.
