whats up Randy ??

I just started running on carpet again. It feels good, feels like I am back home ... Yes that newspaper thing is funny because the guy didn't even told me I would be on the front page so I was surprise when I saw it the first time.

We have a carpet track thats going to be opening in September about 10 miles from my house, so hopefully I can run on the rug before Vegas.

Hey Todd!!!!

If you guys are looking for some volunteers to run the new diff parts in the front motor car, then sign me up!!!!! Just though you might like some feedback for those wanting to upgrade the old car.

Hey Todd, if the car is carpet based foam will it be able to cope with carpet rubber/asphalt or are you guys planning on going down the corally route with different kits for different surfaces?

the way i understand it is the car will work on either surface, but the kit setup (springs, setup sheet, etc...) are geared toward carpet.

I have heard some great things about this car and have seen a prototype. The car was dialed ! The driver was throwing down some super fast laps.

Me too. I think the kit with just changing the spool pulley or oneway and springs will get you on the asphalt or rubber-carpet. At least thats MY plan for it!!!! LOL

Default Enough with the warm fuzzy talk...

How about some pics of the car? What difference does it make when there are many that have seen the car already. Why wait until Vegas? Sounds stupid to me. I would like to see the car so I can decide if it's for me or not.

hopefully the new spool rings are included with the kit.

that would sure be cool for us non-foam guys.

there arent any pics cause maybe they are still desiding on some changes. i think dumas said he was running a pre production car, which would mean they still have a chance to make changes before they make a ton of them. I am sure pictures are going to be posted soon. There building us up for it. LOL
