Default Engines, Weights, Servos, Tires

1. For the racers that are really sponsored speak up. I have met alot of guys that say they are sponsored by this and that company. But 300 people cant be sponsored by that little company that make stickers.
So who is sponsored and by what company.....


2. We have countless topic on the internet that talk about engines, servos, tires, ect.... But who can really drive?

I am a Sponsored drive for Axe Rossi its only a 80% Sponsorship and all so ColdFusion i am Just a Dealer for ColdFusion and get my Fuel at Dealer Cost but i all so Sale fuel for Ron so it helps him to. I have a 50% sponsorship with 413 Signs + Designs.

I will let you guys know this i am not one of the fastest guys on the track but i help any one that needs it i all so talk to ever one at the track and try and help with set ups and what ever they may need help with. All the companies that have Sponsored me are looking for guys who help other people and make there companies look good and sale there Motors or Tires or Fuel for them by being Nice and wining some races.

I see guys all the time that can out run me on the track but don't take time to talk to the NEW Guy are the Kid at the track and just Blow him off and that is just not right.

And when Companies get calls from people buying New Motors or Tires or Fuel and talk about how Nice the guy at the track was by helping them Tune that New Motor are Give them a set of tires to try in a race are some fuel to try it get back to the Companies if you know it are not.

And that is what will get you Sponsored not all ways the FAST guys get Sponsored.

+1 on what Chris said, winning is great if it happens but the way you represent the company and help others in the hobby is the key.

every company in my signature i get cost or for free. at my local tracks i have been top 3 for the last 2-3 years in all forms of racing. when i go to regional races most of the time make the show and place well. at national races i run well but down a couple mains from the very fast guys. but i help out as many people along the way as possible. some times you dont need to be the fastest to get a ride. helping others become faster is also a bonus for companies to help you out. also if you can get 2-3 guyts to buy what you run you have an influence on the market you are in. that will also help you get a ride. companies always look to see who will help them out the most with sales and helpings others at the track so they would not sell there cars.... jeremy
