Things happen at the dragstrip. There is a reason why everyone signs the waiver before they are allowed past the gate…everything from the brutal murder of timing cones to engine explosions can break apart the composite bodies that a lot of these heavy hitters are running. Just because body panels are broke doesn’t mean that the race is over…that new bullet is sitting in the trailer, ready to go in, and there’s time to get a fix in before eliminations start in the morning. Surely, you aren’t planning on throwing away a chance because a timing cone got the better of your race car, are you? You shouldn’t, not when repairing simple damage is fairly straightforward and easy to accomplish for one crew member to take care of while the others are handling the major damage. Can you lay resin, fiberglass and carbon strips? Can you work a heat gun to help cure the resin? Then check out how to take the bull by the horns and fix your stuff yourself. And if you’re running these kinds of parts on your street car, you really might want to pay attention…repairs like this are too easy to do!
