Unfortunately "The Egg" (my Ford Aspire) will be loaded up with my gear and Zach's gear...not much room for anything else (or the power to haul much else)...guess that's the price I'll pay for 40+ mpg.



Sorry man.

While that would definitely enhance the looks of the machine, I'm hesitant to pay more than 1/3rd the purchase price of the car for a sexy wing. My birthday is coming up in September...now you know what you can get me!! lol

If it is available in Chrome or Faux Carbon Fiber, it will double the HP of the whole car.

Count my brother and I in on the 29th. Probably two 2wd buggies and a SCT. Lots of rust to polish off the driving fingers, so we'll, God willing, be there at 3. If we don't break everything to bits by 5, we'll be good to go. The track "officially" opens at 3, but is it "unofficially" open any earlier than that? Are you guys running an AMB counting system? If so, do you have house transponders? Also, the two buggies will be running older AM frequencies (75mhz, multiple crystals, I know, I know, 2.4G is much better, we're kind of dinosaurs, we're running brushed motors and NiMh batteries, too). Is the radio thing a problem, or do you still have a frequency control system (clips or whatever)?
