did you read that the the IIC was number 8 in the top ten races you have to see before you die (or something like that)

I think it was in XRC. Not bad for a first year eh

Well... just sucks when Rain City has next to zero traction at the moment thats all hahahaha. Other than that foams rule over rubber any day on carpet IMO And yes.... my car is dialed on foam.... so I never have to change anything... I like being lazy muhahaha

Hey Sushi,

Glad to see some other guys from the NW going down. I'll be there.
I know Peter Robinson is going. Who else is going down? I saw Waylin is on the list.
Is Travis is going?

After offroad stock nats, Peter and I are going to hit the rain a few times. My car works good on the black stuff, just need to get it dialed on the grey stuff.

Let the Northwest represent.

Yup, I'm not sure if anyone else is going. Andrew might be going but I'm not 100% sure on that.

Are foam tires going to be available at the event? Would there be any kind of a shortage?
If I were to begin buying foams prior to the event, how long ahead of time can I get them so they are still "fresh" when I get to Vegas??

This information will be released in the coming month or 2. We will give plenty of notice to everyone.

Notice to anyone who is sending PM's about changes. It will take a day or 2 to show on the site.

Thanks for the kind words on the video.
If you havent seen it yet, please check it out and rate it on the site.

If you have seen it , go see it again

Does anyone have any more pictures like what I have in 6:26 to 6:31 mark of the movie? If so let me know
Thanks
Boomer

On carpet the RP30's should be better than the CS27. I have found them always to be faster than 27's. They're more aggressive and have more steering . Probably partly because they have a little harder sidewall and flatter carcass. So my vote goes for the RP30's too if it makes any difference .

Hey Scotty and Boomer I want to go and I don't even race on-road(dad says it is toooo expensive , like he's one to talk!). You should start a race like this for off-road. That would be dialed. Cool movie Boomer.
