I wont be racing this weekend, but its not because of this. So dont think anything when you dont see me. This isnt that big of a deal. As long as the local guys are good,,, Im good.

its the best damn thing/idea to hit onroad or even RC since the TA01. deal with it. you can do so by enjoying it or if you dont like it, then leave it alone.

hope to see some of you also...

btw...Ive gone back and read every post on this thread and I am amazed at the 70% negative vibe...guys the point of this thread was awareness...to help ppl that want to run in this class..you and your racers are free to do whatever you like....the "offical" rules are there...it will change over time..but you as racers and the director have a voice at your local track...vote on whatever you guys think is best....like I said before...I love this class and gave up all other forms of rc to do it...Ive got 10-15 ppl involved myself..we ran Sunday and had 25+...and alot of them were new....we have more fun than any other class out there right now...when you post on the thread remember...www...any and everybody can read it...just try and work with the offical rules...the main thing to me and our track is body,rims/tires,motors,ride height,weight, and battery....17.5/27t and lipo/6cell....rear deck spoilers ok...same height as the ones that come on camoro & cuda...the only time paint and decals are made an issue is during concourse or beauty contest...do they look better yes is it that big of a deal no...if you want to keep your complaining I suggest you find something else to do...trying to hurt this class in my area will fall on deaf ears and blind eyes

you want to have fun...run TRANS-AM...or PRO TA...or VTA...but have FUN

my $128.09....how much my tc3 cost me all together...winning with it too

ps...if you need more info make that drive to TN and have some fun...w/o all the BS....

while I'm not about to knock your own personal color choices, are you suggesting that a very BASIC three color fade paintjob is somehow original?
I'm afraid those are so easy any inexperienced 8-year-old can handle it, and look as if you put about as much time into it as I did making coffee this morning.

Sigh.

On another note. Nash's paintjob has become his signature. If you see his car at the track you know he is there. If you see it in pictures from the snowbirds or anywhere else, you know its his car. I think its ugly too, but I can see why he is attached to it.

OK, enough about his paint job. There was an actual tech Q and a good answer a little bit back and it was exciting!

I think enough has been said, it's on the permanent record.......let's move on.
