We are thinking tacos rancheros style along with some burgers and chicken. The cooking will be done on oak. Also some vegetarian cabobs with tons of avocados (plus some guac.) Drinks will be the standard water, soda, and diet. The sweet part is that one of the board of directors is forking over the dough for the event.

Beware of the tacos...the spice has been known to strike back.

The oak grill is getting hauled out to the track some time this week. Bring your propane grill because it looks like it will be a good turnout. Yesterday I saw Levi preparing the "banking" for the entry into the triples for the Jump Off that will take place during lunch. Is your RB Revo ready for such an activity or are you a wussy?

I am no wussy and the S7II Revo is more ready for the triples than you know, as long as I get my engine mount.

When am I gonna get my Titanium Roll Bar?

So it sounds like you are already making up some engine mount excuse. Supposedly the Jump Off is unlimited...anything goes except for excuses. Last I checked the Chinese made about five million engine mounts for Revos.

You are actually sounding kind of like Jimbob. Last time I called him out he bought a ticket to Japan and I have not heard from him since. Fortunately for him and Brent they are not here to be part of the punishment that will be dealt on Sunday.

Little do you know, there was a Jimbob sighting in CVS. A "long haired white guy, wearing all black with a suicidal hat on". The spotter says there was a cart loaded with Vagasil. Maybe you should take it easy on the poor boy.

Yeah, i still have to spend an good hour to get my suspension geometry right so I can back flip good.

Hey Jimbob's condition is no laughing matter. Last time at the track he was barely able to get around without crashing. If his yeast infection gets any worse him might show up with a Truggy.
