I think it's awesome that we don't know how long the races are going to be. That way people can't practice for weeks at driving for that long and gain an advantage over everyone else. Don't announce how long the races are going to be until just before qualifying starts. Then we'll get to see who's the best at guessing on gearing and power setups instead of giving an advantage to those who like to test things like gearing beforehand...

Hey James...how about following what surfers at Mavericks do every year. Have a 24hour or 48 hour ready period. Whoever misses the opening within that time frame can't compete. Hahahaha!

Geez, I am afraid of what would have happened if the Reedy race wasn't on the West Coast. You guys sound like a friendly bunch.

could someone go down to the track and break off a small piece from a corner and send it to me? or maybe give the name of the paving company that laid the track down. i want to have it sent to a lab so i will know which hole to mount my shocks in.

I think that before each round we throw one dice and whatever comes up we race for that long.

Between all the names above, I can't even decide who is nicest...You are all weiners! j/k

And Matt said he would drop in for some of the Reedy weekend. Can he qualify for ME in 13.5? Oh Matt...Are you listening???

One week away...Who's ready for the warm up race at Camarillo????

So far we have 34 sign ups for 13.5, 17 sign ups for mod and 21 for RCGT

You can only sign up on line, no entries will be taken the day of the race. Sign up here and you dont have to pay until the day of the race http://www.roadrunnersrc.com/?page_id=270

That's very noble of you. It's not everyday that he gets to shine on the message boards. I say his time expires tomorrow so get ready to post your funny comments. This thread makes for enjoyable reading since I haven't seen anything useful posted in weeks.
