not sure if you've seen this yet:

http://www.jconcepts.net/

they just started putting overspray masks on 'em. not a bad price, and they look pretty sweet.

i'm sending this one to rccaraction in a few months. if they use it, i'll get a free subscription. mine is up in a few months.

Default horatio, this one's for you

i know your an f1 fan (from the sd thread). now, no one's gonna debate that f1 is better than cart (champ car, if you will), because it is. but i thought you could appreciate this picture of paul tracy going into turn 9 @ the end of the straight from this year's lb grand prix. i got a chance this year to watch it from one of the lux apartments on ocean blvd. sweetest race experience i've had. too bad not enough cautions - tracy pretty much ran way with it.

Very nice jobs - I like metallic blue!

As we're on the subject, not that we need much of an excuse to show off our cars, here's one I did. It's been raced, so it's a bit rough around the edges - but what the hell!

Thanks mate! That's a great picture, and, what a fantastic way of watching a motorsport event! - from the comfort of a luxury apartment.

The Sd thread - heheheh, now there's a volatile thread if ever there was one

Over the Spring/Summer I'll only be racing off road, so I'll be taking a break from the SD thread for a bit. I hear Matt Howard is leaving the states due to work commitments!! That's a rough deal.

I was not aware of these shells to be honest, but they look rather nice IMO.

Good luck with your subscription - the shell is really tidy. Put it this way, if you don't win, sombody bribed the judges

Trinity/TRC Cubics are great on any track as long as it's not super-sandy.
