jeepnyy: The t-shirts will need to be purchased separately. But, being a subscriber will net you (at least) a 10% discount.

J.Filipow: Hmm, you're making me wish I had summoned the energy to go out with those guys. haha

XXX-S Bill: Sure, why not. If you want I can count your previous donation (thanks, by the way!) as a subscription fee.

Hey Shane, you could get somebody like Hurricane to buy a advertising spot on the shirt to reduce your cost.

What does 'futureal' stand for ?

That's not a bad idea. Ask all of your advertisers if they want to get their name on the shirts, charge them a small fee. You could just have a list of them like you see on event t-shirts all the time. If you get enough, you could probably get the shirts paid for by them and keep your cost to next to nothing amking them cheaper for us buying them. Everyone wins!

Doug, I'm still waiting to hear back from Maxspeed to find out exactly how much they WILL end up costing. He did already design a cool logo and stuff for it.

futureal is the name of an Iron Maiden song -- that's where I got the name from. It was a totally spur of the moment thing. When I switched from BBSes over to the internet I wanted to pick a new handle and after scanning around my room at the time (years ago!) that was what I came up with...

As for companies sponsoring the shirts, I guess I could do that, although then it might end up being more like a race shirt. It's a good idea though. Initially I was thinking that the subscription money would go towards initial orders of shirts and stuff.

Dude, you rock...

Futureal Lyrics
by Harris/Bayley

I'm running out of my time, I'm running out of breath
And now it's getting so I can't sleep at night
In the day, feel like death.
I'm getting in far too deep, I feel them closing in
I've got to say that I'm scared, I know they'll win
Even so, I'm prepared.
Do you believe, what you hear
Do you believe, what you see
Do you believe, what you feel
Can you believe?
What is real?
Futureal
What is real?
Futureal
Whenever anyone seems to treat me like a freak
It makes me see I'm the only one who feels
That I know what is real
And sometimes it feels like a game of deadly hide and seek
And when you're reading this, then I will be gone
Maybe then, you will see.
Do you believe, what you hear
Do you believe, what you see
Do you believe, what you feel
Can you believe?
What is real?
Futureal
What is real?
Futureal

I already got my money's worth out of the many Electric On-Road forums that I have subscribed to. Have probably saved a couple hundred by not going in the wrong direction with some tinkering. Will be glad to send you another $25 when the subscription fee thing is working.

In my book, the PEOPLE using your forums have been a great resource (and entertaining).

FYI...Started playing with r/c racing in September. Was in Rookie class for a couple months and got bumped up to Sportsman after some easy wins. Then I found your website...And won my last 3 Sportsman Stock races and have started to dab into 19 turn. It's already being suggested that I move into Expert. Got to I thank some local racers and THESE FORUMS for helping me progress so quickly. Thanks again.
