Biff's won the official 'good boy' star of the day

Axle's on upside down, as a bit of a mis-leader, which is no big shakes, but, yes the auto reverse shoes are on the wrong way round. Ergo, the cam system won't come in to effect and release the shoes. The more you reverse, the harder they'll hold on!

Thing is though, Knott shoes even have a directional arrow and the words 'forward drum rotation' on them...!

In my opinion, yes. It certainly works and over the years I've found it's the least susceptible to being washed away in the drink.
