That will help the US in worldwide racing competetiveness.

Now that would be some "Magic"

quite this bickering about stock racers. there are no rules that says these guys should move up. I also think that they shouldn't be forced to move up. I personally think that alot of you guys want people to move up to Mod because you think that it will give you a chance to win.

to put it into perspective. this would be like nascar telling Truck series guys that after a few wins they need to run busch then after a few wins they need to run cup. lol what a joke.

Yea really.....Stock racers can make more than Mod racers can with some of the contingency programs out there.

How's that for comparing apples to apples? We were, in no way, shape or form, faster than Joel.

Default Joel's EVO 10

Hello Todd P,

Can you post some pictures of Joel's car. The 10th scale pan class was pretty wicked.
