Teachable moment at 0:35. Proper procedure is to yell "EJECT! EJECT! EJECT!" before blowing the lid on airbag cover.

Other than that video looks good.

Clearly you do not have insurance since you did not crash into anyone. I can tell because I am an expert.

Never seen an insurance policy that covers the glove box.

Don't be fooled... DE Rules dictated the cars be scaled before the session.. The Transformer decided it wasn't getting the lap times it wanted to So, it Ejected weight.. He went on to win the DE...

When you gut BMW's there ain't much holding the dashboard up any more. I had this happen, the rattling dash allowed the glove box to pop open. I'm pretty sure the following drama was due to wrong oil in the diff, but I can't help but think being distracted had something to do with it:


Touched the wall and didn't even have to buff - got very lucky. Perhaps the real cause was that evil AIM Solo on the dash.

And next weekend's project was a brace for the dash.

What caused the black flag to come out?
