Steve has got back in the game since this Gt thing has started which is great Steve and I got out and run together at Crystal Park or Greater LA. He loves that this class is picking up but Steve has a new track name (I call him T-Bone). And here's another paint job I've done for the DM-1 spec.

Should not be any problem unless the race director is brand specific. Once the DM-1 Spec RTR is out, then there should be no differences between the IGT RTR and DM Spec RTR.

This is an invitation to come run with our series...just like all the rules I have made for this class... and for all the manufactures to make cars for this class. In addition, for everyone to come out and race there car and have fun.

so I can see that everyone’s got there cars ready and have more than enough time to bench race the internet every night ,,,,, there should be some fine looking gt cars in homestead next weekend race ready and willing to adapt to the ever changing circumstances

Rule #1 you have to show up to the track [the internet don't count]

Rule #2 you should come to the races with the idea to have fun and make some new friends

Rule #3 the forgass president is always right

Rule#4 if the first two rules do not help please refer to rule #3

Guy’s I do not think anyone is waiting for the last second to switch classes or cars. This class is an exabition class for those who want to race this class and help it grow. I am sure I will make some friend and lose some with this class as we make the rules. Let’s try not to ruin the fun before you get to the race.

Please bring all your cars and show up and race I will make the rule as the season go's on everyone can come and we will even out the field the best way we can

Have a great season, and may the best racer win...

I. PURPOSE
Florida On-Road Gas State Series (FORGASS) is established to promote FUN and the hobby/sport of radio controlled automobile racing in Florida, of the United States of America, in Region 4 as organized by ROAR. To develop, organize and promote FUN, safe races and events with fair competition, sportsmanship, and hobby advancement as its primary goals.

Everyone can go to the forgass site www.forgass.com to read all of the bylaws and rules that are made
As you will notice there are not many for the gt car because they are not made or will be on the internet

I guess what I want to say is just be there and let’s race

it's like driving a 3.0 good handling and balance, when your second and a half off the pace of a 1/10th scale sedan then you know this body is doing it's job to perform.

That's a cool report.

Thanks
