I ended up getting a little loose through the climbing esses at VIR last week. Reviewing my options of either making the next left and possibly not being able to pull right around the last turn, I decided to just let it run straight and keep from heading off track to the Villas. I figured it was the safer of my two options at that point.

I ended up with 2 wheels off over the last strip of curbing at the top. It grabbed my front splitter, balled it up into a pretzel and spit it out the back of the car. Other than being a little scraped up and my KAE paint flaking off, it's in good shape. Stillen said they designed it to be flexible just for this purpose, if you hit something on track, it can simply bend and then flex back into shape instead of cracking. Worked just like they said it would...

If you watch the rear camera closely at about 0:20, you can see it shoot out the back end.

Nice. There are some definite advantages to urethane over other products for the lowest most furthest forward portion of your car.

Yeah, the urethane worked just like the website said it would. It's a little hard to see on YouTube but the HD video I got shows it balled up like a pretzel when it shot out the back. Obviously, the paint flaked off parts of it and it's a little scraped but it's not broken or torn at all. Still completely useable. I should have it back on the car this weekend getting ready for Summit on the 13th.
