Keep hiding...
EDIT: Not being a class act would be trying to take revenge on him in the same manner, which some have suggested that I do and I have said I will not because that is a waste of energy. Get a clue!!!
The simple fact of the matter is that crap happens.
I made mistakes in Camarillo and at Crystal Park… They were my races to lose and *I* blew out on both occasions. *I* take ownership of MY not winning those races and don’t blame anyone but myself.
-JBRL Camarillo: Only in your dreams it was your race win!!! You beat my TQ by 2 tenths of a seconds...while I was on the dump with a minute to go...Congrats to you! In the main you blew the first corner, I waited, you blew the second corner I made a clean pass, your car flung wide then back in again because you didn't want the rest of the pack to past you and at the same time, while the process you WIPED out my car. For clarification yes you broke my car it had no throtle. Maybe if you had the courage to stick around and find out you would have known. Unlike you if I know my car isn't working I'd rather pull it off then wad it up even more or affect somelse's race. Case in point, a week ago Sat when we started the race and both mine and BB's tires blew out, I continue to run for a short time even though I knew the tires were blown but the car got harder and harder to control so I pulled it off. Was that act of pulling the car off a tantrum...hell know...was I pissed that the glue broke..hell yes. I was in third after dropping from second but still pulled because from where I stand it was a danger to everyone else. Did you conveniently forget the BB pulled off as well for the same issue??? You do remember that we both used the same glue and had the same EXACT issue right???
-JBRL Crystal Park: In the first qual after leading the race over you by 3+ seconds and with just less than a minute to go I pullled my car off. Why because I was on the dump due to now have a full charge. In the main NEWS FLASH, I went from 5th on the grid to 3rd right at the timing loop, then MOTORED pass Chad on the short straight then right up on you and to pass you AGAIN after you blew the corner only to have to send your car back in after blowing the corner and tuck my body in. Then Chad caught up and passed me while the body was tucked. How much power do you think was expended by doing that??? None...a little..ALOT!!!!
-Last Tuesday night racing: You yourself said you were hurting and when I caught up to you in qualifying, I figured you were letting me go because you went wide into the sweeper…since that’s what you do in qualifying when faster traffic comes up on you… you let them go.
I guess you weren’t letting me go and when you tried to close the door there was contact made and you got the worst end of it.
You want me to move up into the dirt off line in the middle of the sweeper to let you pass....ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? Another news flash for you, I did that the first qual for another driver. Talk with Kevin Smith about it, I'm sure he remembers.
-In the main a few weeks ago when I was in the lead and lapping you, you did not make any effort to move out of the way to let me go for a number of laps. You have no idea how many people came up to me after that race and told me about how lame they thought that was of you and that if they were me they would have put you off the track and into the wall for that kind of thing.
Was 2nd place contending for 1st place, last I checked he was at least half a track behind you. So yes I tried to stay on the lead lap. Didn't you hit me then as well??? Yep. Did I even mention it...nope.
Respect is a two way street Fred. Things have happened on the track between you and I but NEVER have they been on purpose or out of malice on my part. Never have you come up behind me in qualifying and I decided to not let you go. I ALWAYS get out of the way for the leaders or the race when they came through to lap me. Good for you that you got your car figured out at SOCAL. Don't worry we are getting there. Wasn't this evidenced when I smoke you and everyone else a couple/three Sat's ago??? Here's how I see it. How can you gloat about being fast when you competition isn't giving you there best. When I smoked you your car was good, I snatched your TQ and drove AWAY from you in the main. At the past 2 JBRL races that we have both attended my car was better/faster than yours. So again kudos to you for have your car working really well at Socal...
-Exactly. Just like this past Sunday, I have told you I don't think you committed these acts intentionally...but when is it too much?!?!?! Are you trying to say that it's okay to keep making the exact same mistake over and over again and as long as you apologize that makes it all okay??? I think not.
-At Crystal Park I came up on you towards the end of the race in an effort to un-lap myself and had an opportunity to “send it in” in a section I was faster than you in to get my lap back but I didn’t. I just stayed behind you and finished out the race there out of respect for your position.
Did I miss something here...you were always a corner behind. The only time you may have had a chance to "Send it in" was at the loop. Cmon!!!
-Instead of feeling like it’s the world against Fred and playing the victim maybe it would be better if Fred just worried about himself a little bit more?
Wow I didn't realize you were a mind reader!!! How do you know how I feel??? Have I told you this??? Seems to be a very loose interpretation...Don't quit your day job cause you are completely off base! But you keep right along thinking this.
You and RickyIS300: Who is this person, oh yes he's one who started a thread accussing me of what sitting at the track balancing my stock motor arms with a dremel during a club race in which I slayed everyone??? Mr. Caldwell was pitted next to me this very club race the entire night. The next day I smoked the Integy boys at Hobby People race at Camarillo, which is when he started that thread. Should I mention the racial statements he threw my way or did you catch those.......I thought not.
You and Bitter: You obviously don't have the full story here either. If you were strong enough look back over the posts you would see that this FOOL started the drama..not me!!! Have you and his cronies missed all the BS he writes on this forum. You all just seem to gloss over that...cause what you're his friends and that make it okay....Wrong!!!! It ain't okay.
You and Tony: What can I say about Tony. Really only that it sadden me to see him turn into the kind of person I hoped he wouldn't. He took a statement that wasn't an attack on him nor the company he works for, blew it up, and refused to admit he was wrong about his interpretation even when I told him he read it wrong!!! To you and to him I say it again, when have I ever been know for not telling ANYONE how I feel...NEVER!!!! To Tony, if you knew what a "Busta" was you wouldn't be laughing about it. It's not someone's name!!!
You and Molina.: Mike and I are buddies, and have always been. Another one of your off base interpretations. Mike is a jokster, we spoke about the comment he wrote and laughed about it cause we both knew his intent.
You and the novice who accidentally spun out in front of you: huh??? What are you talking about...speak on it!!!
You and XXXXX: Boring!!!
Next time get the facts before you open your mouth about situations you have no idea about.
-I feel that it’s out of line coming on here and trying to make it sound like I am a rampaging out of control gorilla on the track and that I am a menace to racing . I’m not sure what to say to it all except that if there are more people out there who feel the same way then I urge them to come forward and say so.
Don't know if you were a gorilla..but you were foul!!! Sometimes the truth hurts....I'm not sorry for saying it.
-Let’s go have a club race and have fun… it’s not the World’s… it’s not the Nationals… there are no hidden agendas or conspiracies. Even if it was the World’s or Nationals or Reedy or whatever it’s not life or death…it’s just a bunch of dudes trying to have fun with their RC cars.
Exactly trying to have fun and race their RC cars. Just don't do stupid shiet and nothing will be said. It's not fun to me to have someone as yourself affect my race when it could be avoided. Which is the entire point I'm making now and I tried to make to you before. It can me avoided. If mistake happens due to uncontrollable circumstances then what can you do...nothing. But you had control Steve, you make a conscience decision. I've seen you do this before. Stay in control and if you lose it don't try to gain it back at the expense of others. Cause then you being disrepectful and dishonorable in your driving.
