My car had a bit of creep as well. While making a pass it popped a headgasket, pressurized the cooling system blowing off the lower rad hose. Obviously tires got wet and I went thru the trap sideways at 129.6 mph. Missed the end of the wall by about 25ft. I was lucky I was in the right lane cause I went thru a field on the right side of the track. I came thru ok, car was ok, my pants were NOT ok. A bit of creep could have a big effect. What if happened to me on the street? Could have died or killed someone else.
I have since swapped gates, an fittings / braided stainless rad hoses and had a cage/harnesses installed.
True story, happened at Tri-state raceway Nov. 07.
