Racing reference does not list any Rossi wins after the 1970 innovation, so I assume they didn't win any races as a result of the glue."... was the first to glue lug nuts to the wheels."
For years, I have wondered who developed the ingenious yet oh-so-simple system of extended studs with a smaller diameter un-threaded tip, combined with glued lug nuts. And here I see it was the mysterious Mario Rossi who invented that system, or at least part of it.
I wonder if Rossi's cars won any races because of this innovation? I wonder how long it took for it to spread throughout the garage area? Anyone know?
