heres what you do josh, you call up fukuyama and talk to dan and ask him about the mtoors, then you call toso and get him to do the same, then the next day you sleep all day, then the next day you call up fuku again, then maby you will have motors. And if all eles fails, just steal randmans

Really...nobody runs foams on asphalt with an electric sedan Our club had a rubber tire rule last year but it got tossed at the last club meeting. I wonder...hmmm...maybe I should stick to running my CS22's & 27's again this year and prove that I was right in thinking rubbers would be better...I did vote for keeping our rubber tire rule in the spec 19 class

Sup Josh,
All of that stuff is under the Control Panel link at the top of the screen. To do the sponsors under your post go to the Edit Profile link. Type what you want in the Signature box. For the picture under your name, go to the Edit Options link. At the bottom of that screen there is a section that says "Avatar". Click Change Avatar. Another window will open and go to the bottom and choose Browse. Pick the file you want from your computer and then click Submit Modifications. All done.

Well it's almost time. I should get my car by UPS tomarrow. I have been out getting some painting supplies. Also been looking at getting setup boards and stuff along that lines. Been looking at some bodies for the small ozite indoor track I found out we have semi nearby. Anyone have any ideas about a good body for a short tight track? Or does the stock Alfa seem ok enough? Style wise I like the MG ZS, but I don't know if it would be better or not as far as handling goes.
