Top Five

demolition derby survival strategies and immobilization techniques

1. Bust an opponent's radiator by backing into him.

2. Pop his tire.

3. Break his car's rear by hitting its side at an angle.

4. Ram him hard from behind, or T-bone his passenger side, to snap the drive-line.

5. Make a hit at least every three minutes (failure to do so is called "sandbagging") and stay away from others backing toward you.
