I added that to Chris's contract....make sure punting of drift car by jackasses who whine about the fast guys at the track....

That guy, lost all crediablity with his threats....and I also asked Kinwald what happened....and it was a MUCH different story that the guy who supposed got punted......


Besides....take the drift cars to the drift track.......or duing the drift session....driving around a car sliding all over the place....

It's like a drifting practice while Micheal Shumacher is taking practice......

it was friday open practice,
the drift car was an amateur driver and Mr Tosoline is a sponsored professional driver.

does this make it right for breaking someones car?

You were not there,
I personally know the people who were damaged.

If schumacher crashed into me on purpose. that would just show the type of hate mentality that exhist in on road racing.

I don't care if it was president bush, Mike helton, if they crashed into me on purpose it still would not make it right.

If this is the kind of person you want to sponser, that is well and good.
I will throw away all of my team brood motors. and buy elsewhere.

thank you tosso for opening the track, that was very professional.

Let's see. A 7x1 moving mach 10 on the straight in practise, and a drift car on the straight not giving room to the faster car= collision. Believe me, Chris didn't want to hit the car, it does nobody good. It especially doesn't do good to his own car that he uses for racing that includes some parts that are irreplaceable. Now imagine how you would have felt being him coming off the stand and that same drift car guy starts yelling at him? Let's see... he should have chewed some bubble gum, told the guy that his drift car looks bitchin and should always have the right to the track and no one else who wants to use the track. Hmm, do I smell some sarcasm?

sorry guys it was friday and open practice
tosso is the professional and my experience is when one of them hits you it's on purpose.

As a matter of fact when this incident occured I told nate to back off and let it go. I told him not to go to SoCal because grip and drift guys usuall don't mix to well. I just figured it was one of the local grip guys forcing the issue.

When the subject came up again last year he told me it was tosso. I was very upset to learn that a professional sponsored driver would conduct himself in this manner

and by the way I still have my brood motors, I just peeled the labels off. those are up for grabs.

The fact is that SoCal is a RACE TRACK. Not a DRIFT track. I wasn't there so I don't know if what Chris did was intentional or not. If it was, it wasn't the best way to handle the situation, but neither is taking a drift car on one of the highest grip asphalt RACE tracks in the country. I'm all for people getting into RC what ever way they want to. But cars are made for specific applications and locations. Race tracks are not the place for drift cars. It's like taking a TMAXX to a carpet track.

Congrats to both Chris and Eddie.
