    Center Punch

    A center punch is a device which allows you to shatter your tempered windows (won't work on laminated safety glass obviously). There are many types. Here is an example:

    this will shatter your windows so that you can get out of your submerged vehicle.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    I DO carry a first aid kit and an Emergency roadside kit but have never needed to use them. I use a helmet when at the strip, but I couldn't race without one. Center punch? Not much water in the middle of the Sonoran Desert so no need at this time. Cage, harness and associated safety items will come when I acquire another DD.

    Good post for those who have never given this a thought.

    Very true! I only launched off a 3 footer at the beginning of last winter. I thought that set had another season in them, but I was wrong. Most snow tires are rated for 80-90 mph. They feel like your floating allover when you get up to 75 with the deep soft tread. I didn't want another set of them!

    Hey anthracis I almost got busted a second ago! Me and my girl were in my grocery getter(SS) and we had just finished shopping and on our way home. I got on this street that I like which has very little traffic and I never see cops on it. I took off in 1st pretty good(not too hard because it scares my girlfriend) then just layed into and floored 2nd up till redline then I just let the rpms just fall, and guess who's sitting right at the street where I'm about to come into. 5-0! I silenced my car by getting in neutral then picking a much higher gear like 4th then two cars behind that cop was another cop. I was like oh SHIT! Nothing happened but PHEW!

    It was your lucky day!!

    You were a LUCKY boy! They must have been in the area on some other crime, citizen inquiry, or were in a quiet area working on reports. You definitely lucked out.

    I know these cars beg to be driven! But just be careful. A kid could have ran out in front of you just as easily...esp. on a residential street. Keep your wits about you and your eyes open.

    You gotta get into her sometimes...its ok to do so. But 5-0 is always around. Always BOLO for the 5-0. Otherwise they will you!

    hahaha, yea man.

    I wasn't in a thick residential area it was the kind of street where if there were kids out, they shouldnt be out on that street anyways without a parent. all I had to worry about hitting was a racoon or opossum or something like that.

    Cool

    Yeah, I thought as much. The 5-0s were probably just working on their reports or something.

    Ha ha, just be on the lookout for'em.

    If You Survive...

    You won't need the center punch if you fly off a bridge! Stick your head between your legs and kiss your @$$ goodbye!!

    If you survive...your loved ones in the vehicle survive(yeah...you have to check on them too), and you are coherent enough...and that's a biiiiig "IF," you can then look for a center punch.

    Didn't mean to rain on your parade. But it helps to have a center punch just in case!!

    DRIVE SAFE EVERYONE!!

    thats great and all, but if you have tinted windows like most you still gonna have issues 'busting out' the glass to escape...

    Talking Water Pressure!!!!

    Yeah...uhm...you know...there's this concept of water pressure...and like when you're under water, like, the tint, like, will not, like hold hundreds of pounds of water from coming into the car through the shattered glass.

    JUST KIDDING WITH YOU!!

    Yeah but seriously...unless your tint is made of some extraordinary space age materials, the water will come crashing in...NO PROBLEM. Center punch will do its job.

    screw that I'd just roll down the window or open the door hahaha.

    Anthracis... my girl just asked me if I want to go out tonight and do some donuts... Do you realize how special a question like that is coming from her mouth? She's scared of me driving remotely fast. I make sure not to get too wild while she's in the car with me. She said she'll sit right beside me while I do it! She told me to bring the tripod! Sounds kinda freaky, huh? hahaha

    We're leaving at midnight and I'm going through the gears! I'm going for 2nd and I may do 3rd!

    These tires are still pretty good and I don't have cash for new ones right now! DAMMIT! I don't want to be riding around on baldies... I think I'll wait and do it when these tires are about to be replaced...
