how does this truly decrease contact if I can brake-check you at the start and damage your bumper?

Stop hurrying about what’s behind you Rob!!!

I’ve never thought about brake checking someone.  For the fact that I’d probably end up on the side of the track.  And believe me, if someone brake checked me on purpose, i’d make sure they were on the side of the track.

The risk versus reward of brake checking someone is not worth it.  Too many things can go wrong.  And if the person behind you has the same attitude, one or both would end up on the side of the track.  And 9 times out of 10 its the kart in front.
