But do you really want to take a show quality car on the track and risk messing up the paint or crashing it?

I guess, but still.......

Ever seen the front of many track cars? Every tried to count the paint chips?

I don't know if you'll even be allowed on the track without working manual door handles.

I dont think you can track your car with shaved front handles. Unless you drive with your windows down all the time. Otherwise how will they help you if your shits on fire or something.
