Duct Tape

Gum Tape Deathmatch or Duct Tape Deathmatch (ガムテープデスマッチ) is Shingo's challenge proposed to Takumi. 

Summary

In this handicap match, both drivers tape their right hand to the steering wheel for the duration of the race. By doing this, a driver limits their own steering capabilities and it makes turning a challenge in a rear wheel drive car, as "catching" a car's over-steer on the exit becomes quite difficult. In a front wheel drive car though, the use of the handbrake assists in turning the vehicle in corners. It is currently unknown if doing this would make turning a challenge in a four wheel drive car.
