We're also doing a Pre-Ipanema Sports GT Worlds warm-up in December in Puerto Rico during the Carribean Winter Cup event.

I think maybe we should start running 1 hour A Mains and stop screwing around.

What do you say about that GT racers?
I am all for a 60 minute A-main but I will roll with whatever the majority wants.

Oct 21st will be all day practice with Oct 22nd & 23rd being qualifying and mains.

If you fly in, you want to fly into the George Bush International airport. It is closer to the track than Houston Hobby. There are plenty of hotels/motels in the area so finding lodgings should not be difficult.

So, it looks like there is a lot of GT racing to be had the next few months. Texas this month, Leisure Hours in Illinois in June, Mike's in Porter/Houston in October, and to end it with the pre-Worlds in Puerto Rico in December. Plenty of GT racing to be had by all.

i have been wanting to enlarge the wheelbase on my ofna gtp2 to mach the wheel base of the dm1 pro so i can use the 1/17 body. does anyone know if any of the tuggy chassis from ofna would fit the gtp2 parts and be long enough for the conversion. the only other option would be cutting one out of carbon fiber but i am thinking the tuggy chassis would be cheaper and easier if it would fit
