Questions from Stands Re: Bending Rules
In the “old” days having a hundred extra yards of fuel line for some extra mileage was “cute” but a track bar handle that “morphs” the rear window!
Where does nascar draw the line?
In the Strar Trek Tradition of Scotty’s transparent aluminum, what if a team develops a material technology that can predict a new shape window will warp to when constructed of the new substance in a predictable length of time when exposed to sunlight!

I prefer the simple old ones like setting the parts washer on fire to hide and switch the cam shafts!(the King)
