I know, of course. I was saying he's like, the working man's hero, ya know? Something for the average guy to look up to? Make sense? WTF, I meant it as a complement, not an insult. It's hard for the average club racer to relate to the fast pros, but fast stock guys that do well against all competition are an inspiration, since they seem to be more like regular guys than paid pros.

I would say it's easier for people to relate to good racers that are dominant in stock and mix it up in 19T than the superhuman pros that can wheel it in mod. It makes sense, really, isn't like 99% of club racing in stock? No wonder these companies are putting stock guys on the payroll.

Anyway, I meant no disrespect to Jeff or guys like him, I just think it's interesting to see how they compare to the pros when they race on common ground (19T). A few of them are right in the mix, but I definitely get the impression that the guys doing their thing in mod would be at the top in 19T or stock, too, which I personally find to be rather interesting. In some ways, I think 19T is the perfect class, because it brings the fast stock and fast mod guys together in the same arena, and really shows you who's who, so to speak.

Open mod is the only fair playing field.
Its the shut up and drive class.
Its how manufacturer's show who's got the most quality, and most reliable product under extreme condition's.

And while you're at it, take your avatar and weak jokes back to Internet 1999 where they originated. Ooooh, dunkin' doughnuts parody, next you're going to get a joecartoon.com avatar.

While I generally don't give a sh*t what the R/C community thinks of me, I didn't want to insult someone when it wasn't intended. I have no problem slinging insults when I feel they're warranted, however.

Agreed; anyone who didn't realize you were complimenting Cuffs.... well... I think I have enough enemies on this board already.

As for track time and scrubbing in tires, these guys are professionals. If they can't adjust to a track quickly enough, maybe they should ask their sponsors to give them a little time off from the big races to concentrate on their lines and adjustment techniques.

See, there's a fine line between being retro and being completely out of touch. :-)

Google image search is a good start. Careful, some of those might be offensive, or otherwise not safe for work/kids/wives.
