EXACTLY!!! if they choose to not let a TeamC run then they have to follow all of the other rules, like the bodies, good point!

Default NY State Championship

Hi guys went to the NY state championship this weekend, ended 2nd.
Was a 2 race, could only make it on Sunday so ran only 1 qualifier. Qual went pretty bad because I encountered engine issues. Started 7th on the grid and worked my way up to 2nd. It was a great race with tough competition and lots of fun in the pits!

Frenchy, I see you ran the Blitz body for the NYS Championship. How did it compare to the Sweep body you ran earlier this year @ Jervis?

The Blitz feels a little more planted, rolls a little less. But my lap times, including my fast lap are identical. I did 17.4 fast lap with both bodies...

Hey guys
I'll be in the state in a few weeks in the Cali and was wondering if anyone knows a good hobby shop that I can go to for GT parts like bodies, sweep tires etc. on the shelf.
Cheers
