Vladimir,

The nudge bar on the Shadow rally car would be as useful as tits on a bull for the Carmargue............

How hideous can you get. The foul person who created this monstrosity should be lead away on a chain, flogged like the family mule and thereafter struck from the book of existence.

Well Vlad you missed blighting their whole existence for all eternity. Nothing like a good biblical blighting for driving home a point.

Actually Vlad, it is also poorly designed. There needs to be sufficient space between the nudge-bar and grille to absorb impact energy by bending. This will bend straight into the grille. Also, the rails underneath need to be stronger than the bar itself otherwise what do you think will bend? Not only ugly but not fit for purpose either. Ouch!
