    Note the plastic Z Glass wheels - still used in Derby today. Unfortunately these wheels lacked any strength against side loads, and would explode into two halves the chute, with the little rubber band rolling off after being liberated.

    After watching this happen 1000x, the powers that be finally banned them, which I believe is still in the rule book.

    This along with Phikap flipping and/or blowing up another really good tire, where the "not again!" free roll events of 83-84-85

    In 1984, Legend looked so much better next to her 2nd place design trophy.

    Is there any video of the Z-Glass failures?
