Hey, I have some plans pending but if it doesn't pan out I'll be there....only problem is now I've converted to a rally truck. But, I guess, for you, I can change it back....

If you guys run Rally on the leftover SuperCross track layout that's there, you couldn’t carry enough spare parts into the building.

So, in other words, I might show up to watch if you get my drift.

Frank--> have my Rally ready to go, but i don't wanna run on a SUPERCROSS track. Something similar to our first official Rally race (RcCar coverage) would be preferable. Can someone talk to Jim about making it happen? If so, I'm there.

The SuperCross track at SoCal right now is PERFECT for the rally cars....the jumps really aren't THAT big for them (although, if you go for the triple or quad, it'll get pretty hairy). It might be pretty fun, actually!!!

Good luck guys.

One one thing to ask.

Do you think a rally car would be a 4wd off road car?

Tony, Thad said to to bring your best game...he thought your best game was "Sorry!" but I think it might be "Boggle" or "Twister"...but change the car over and run it, man! Bring Brad too! and Murdog!

Tink you'd better be there.

G-Man from RCCA said he'll be there so if we can get several rally dudes to show up it'll be very cool.

I've got a Rally New Beetle to bring out!

Thad??? Who's Thad??? Oh, ya, he used to race on-road at SoCal....well, since he hasn't been there in the past month and a half, I guessing his skills are GONE!!!!

Oh, I'll bring it....all the way to the winner's circle!!!

Sorry, though. Brad won't be there nor will Murdog....you know, blowouts....heh heh

C'mon Tony, we were there all night and didn't see you!

Thad had to toast a CVD right before the main just to make it interesting.
