yeah, it was either this, or digging up all of the shaft vs. belt threads. this was easier.

well I heard about 2 factory stock drivers with full flight and another team offered a ride to a driver with a full ride. it's crazy I can't compete with that. but it's getting to the point that full stock drivers are becoming the elite of racing. you can't sell a car now just because Barry Baker won with it. but if a stock driver does the stock driver at the local track will buy it. the real test is going to be the stock nats invitational at the Gate. can the full factory stock drivers keep up with the full factory mod drivers.

Infact there is a open 1/12th scale class. Don't worry though there will be plenty of opportunities to be on top this is The Gate we're talking about here.

Yea there will be two groups. The invite group 1/12 and TC for all the A main drivers from this past season and the Open group 1/12 and tc for everyone else. Travis was interested in coming. You guys should come and bring Peter with you also since he might be out of school by then.

You know it's going to be a great event when even James T. Herrmann joins in with the innuendo.

Nice work, sir.
