Spooky, you just never could accept the fact that the first set of GT rules ever published were Bubba Cola’s Leisure Hours track racing could you?
Sorry you had to hear it again Mr 3500 grams weight limit, take care of yourself anyway. Lol

By the way, where are all those GT rules that the self proclaimed “board” submitted to Roar almost two years ago?

Why weren’t they ever published so the International GT racing community could see them and learn from them too?

Default GT needs Chemo

I'm new to the GT world, just finished my second year of racing. I've been following the GT forums for most of those two years. They have always been insightful and a great place to chat with fellow racers. As of late a few of the GT forums seem to have gotten a cancer. It gets chemo and disappears briefly, but seems to keep coming back. Unlike most cancers we can cure this one by ignoring it. There are too many great things going on with GT right now to let an ugly disease drag it down.

I think the only rule we need in GT right now is to ignore the cancer.

Oh and an open motor

Don't attack Gus, he has done more for GT racing than anyone I know. He built Utah GT racing by himself and it is going well. He built Spooky's RC Racing and if you were ever to travel you would see his shirts all over the country. Gus is an ambassador to the class and I feel very lucky to get to swap paint with him each week. He has taught me so much and given his time to so many more you couldn't even comprehend.

JSpeed, you do nothing but cause pain and annoyance to anyone who tries to build a constructive board. Its time for you to go away, I hope the moderators take care of your extremely negative outlook on anything but the past. There is all kinds of talk going on about finalizing the rules for GT, there is a reason you are not a part of it. Please invest your time in your products and not everyone's grief. Isn't there a new better than all body you should be working on? I'm sure 99% of GT racers wouldn't run your products even if they were far better than the rest. They aren't and wont be... Instead you try to bring everything and everyone down to the Impanema level. Every time you post on here you prove everyone right about what a "cancer" you are.

I've done my best to stay out of your mess but you went after someone who may as well be my family. I apologize to the rest of the community for the negativity but passionless false statements need not go unanswered.

Marcus tell us about that Team C I'm sure you have something new going on. Lets talk GT gents

I would like to see a spec class and an open class in GT
Open would be any GT car with open motor
Problem is what do we consider spec? I would suggest any production GT car
what motor, what tires?
Any inputs or suggestions so we can know what the racers want

Who says Friday the 13th's are bad??? I would like to see an Open class (Motors and tires) and a Spec class (Spec motor and Tire). Just my opinion, doesn't mean much
