Quote from: RandyP on October 24, 2017, 07:14:19 pmI've never had a problem at the VDA due to guardrails or slippyness. My corvette was almost destroyed on the VDA this year due to an exhaust valve dropping during a slalom! New engine arrives this week.

Sorry for the off topic question.
Quote from: ericdc on October 24, 2017, 03:21:28 pmI completely recognize the risk exists everywhere but when spongebob hit the dirt by the pool at NHSCC, the car still drove home. When Randy slid his Corvette into the grass at Cumberland, the car still drove home. Even hitting a runway light isn't going to ruin a car like collision with a guardrail. Those cars definitely didn't drive home.
QuoteIt's the SCR that has skin in the game. And it sounds like the SCR Solo board has a plan to keep people out of the guardrails next year.Problem is, as I've seen before, when this SCR Solo board (inevitably) gets burned out and quits and new blood takes over and some newer autox'ers start designing courses the mistakes of the past will be forgotten and guess what...repeated. Somebody will put a fast slalom along the guardrail and somebody will hit it.Simply put, I don't think it's PittRace's responsibility.
