This is listed as orange, but it sure looks yellow. They also have a light yellow option as well. Then you'll just need the toe hook thread in adaptor to go with it.

Nice sense of aesthetics...

I just checked if the ones I got from Turner are available in Yellow...but no such luck!

A "yellow" tow strap. M3 owners go the extra mile (or 20 inches of webbing)!

Everybody knows that a yellow tow strap is at least 5 seconds a lap faster than a red one, and even better for posing in the starbucks parking lot
