wow, something I actually know a little about

the guys that are into the drifting scene are crazy about these things. they want huge wheels/tires, and zero wheel/fender gap, so they roll their fenders using these, comes out much cleaner than the classic baseball bat routine, but either way it usually requires a respray due to paint cracking if you go with too extreme of a roll.

there are several places that rent them out from what I understand.

here're a few examples:

Might work a little better than the old baseball bat trick, but it sure looks like it costs a bundle.

Watch a NASCAR race on Sunday and they will show you how to use the bat.
