Have you tried opening it in wordpad or word? Looks great. Oval guys seem very antsy here.

Well I gotta say I'm surprized at a few drivers' results, a few people I'd expect to be closer to the back are way up front, and a couple people that are usually up front are back in the pack a little ways.

I think Matt F only has .00000001 percent body fat to keep him warm...The guy is fit. But, several of us drivers at Stockton got to see him tough it out outside the track on a cold Saturday morning before the track opened. And it didn't slow him down one bit! Actually, we don't want him taking his show outside of California to go to the North or Midwest...he, he...Sorry about that!!!

But, I used to race with the likes of Rick Mears...And miss that show too! Hmmmm...Maybe Matt should 'graduate' to real race cars so he can continue with the 'show'....Not laughing!!!

Danny had some problem with his visa or something, so he won't be coming to the US until he can get it fixed.

And burbs......not sure how long you have been racing, but non-oval guys have been calling oval racers circle jerks forever....just like the oval guys tell us offroaders to go play in our sandbox......not sure if sedans have got a nickname yet, maybe some day.


Get a sense of humor.........it was nothing more than a joke, one you obiviously didn't get.

I guess the reason that "SEDAN" Racers dont have a knickname, is that Us oval racers, are a little more MATURE and have better things to do then come up with stupid names for a different form of R/C racers!

"circle jerks" ......get a life!

Well, after 15 years of racing........I've never once heard of an oval racer take the "circle jerk" name calling personally. Its all in good fun, I guess something a fcouple of you lack. I am not a sedan racer anyways....I am a offroader stuck playing on carpet because of a lack on local indoor offroad tracks in our rainy state.

And I didn't come up with the name(I was oh, 13 at the time and had NO clue what a circle jerk was).....like I said, it was the names shouted across the pits between the oval track and offroad track at the same place.....was always followed by laughing and good ole fashion fun.......try it sometime, you might like it.


Drag racers and Road Course racers often call oval guys the samething, I've heard them say it at swap meets, car shows, and big racing events at Bakersfield and SIR in Seattle. So I doubt RC cars guys even came up with it.

Hopefully you never play in a competive softball league, you wouldn't last a minute.


And as for a life.....well, think whatever you want....this is just a fun hobby....one where I go play with my friends and we like giving each other a hard time, but again.....all in good fun.

Some people just lack a sense of humor....maybe I should of put more after my comment, one wasn't enough I guess.

Back on topic....great coverage shane. I am gonna snap some more pics of kinwalds cars hidden mods up close.

Hopefully I can actually run a heat tomorrow, as I had radio problems.

What the heck is a mouth breather? Could be funny.....

The oval qualifying is nearing the end for the day. Probably about 90 minutes left. I will have results from this posted as soon as it is over.

Oh, and let's please, please not have this turn into an oval versus on-road fight -- even though every one of our Snowbirds threads for the past 3 years have!

Some guys like oval, some guys like road course, some guys like dirt, asphault, big cars, little cars, girls in thongs, guys in thongs, whatever! Who cares?

I have updated the web site itself with as much information as I have so far, and got it ready for some more pictures here soon. Those of you having trouble with the oval results should check there. I am going to have to remove the lap times to save on my bandwidth costs (let's see some donations! haha) but the results themselves are there.

Oval Round 2 is on #48 out of 51. I will post results sometime between 5 AM and 6 AM ET. My car was busted up and I wanted to take it out to try and run a bit of practice so I can actually finish a stock qualifier!

Oh yea, here's the link of course: http://www.rctech.net/events/snowbirds2004/index.shtml
