Oh... we have 5% beer... and 7, 8, even 9%. It isn't the common stuff, but it is readily available.

Hmmm... ok... just send me the truck and I'll send you Obama.

Wait... maybe I'm going about this wrong. How about "send me the truck NOW or I'm gonna send you Obama?"

The sad thing is, that's made by a division of an American car company... but they won't let us have the cool stuff. What are they thinking?

how about this one to get you from the sheep station to town : http://www.fpv.com.au/fpv-range/gt/overview.aspx

lol who cares about politics when you got cars like these to choose from, we put up with our own fruit loop politicians for 13 year because ford brought back the V8

sorry everyone, got a bit side tracked there

your a track jerk if you can't stay on topic in a great thread

Would you be considered a track jerk if you stop your car in the middle of the strait away in front of the drivers stand to make adjustments to your car and not warn the other drivers on the stand resulting in people hitting your car at full throttle and breaking their car?

Marshals can be track jerks too when they assume you are finished with your qualifier (when you actually sqeeked in and extra lap )and walk off the track. Had this happened recently...not cool

Absolutely agree. Had that happen to me while I was leading my last race of the summer before going abroad for 4 months. I always try to be as friendly as I can at the track, but I totally lost my cool at the guy.

Personally, there's nothing I hate more than a driver yelling on the stand. There was one guy at the club I raced with this summer who ran his mouth every second of every heat and main he drove. It was completely impossible to concentrate on my driving, and it really annoyed everyone at the club. I think he actually got DQ'd for it once or twice.

Yeah... your own teammates can be too... when you slow to avoid a tangle in front of you at the start, and they take you out from behind... putting you in last place in the main. And laugh about it.

I think if you crash in a stalled / stopped car on the straight way, its partly your fault also.

You are a track jerk if you are marshaling and upon flipping an "e"-buggy over you realize its engine isn't running and you bring it back to the pit area during an amain!
