Gidday,

I need to know the following information:

I need to know the timetable and how many heats we have each day.

A confirmation list of whos entered

An email to confirm that full throttle speedway got my picture and transponder no.

The track drawings for each class

Surely by this time someone can answer all of these questions

Thanks
Mike

I just want to make a comment about the way information seems to be getting released. I think the organizers of this event need to talk to the guys who put on the Reedy Race. We always have all the information way in advance. Particularly time lines. IMO, that's as important as anything. the 2003 event was a great example of time management. The first two days of pratice, we were able to tell when we were going up for controlled pratice by what time it was. We didn't worry about what heat was up. We knew weeks in advance what time on what day our pratice was going to be run on and we went down to the minute that year. That was awesome. I just think the same approach should be take here, especially with so many racers flying in from all over the world.

Just my .02

The body list I got from Todd Tuesday DID NOT have the Mazda on it. Did something change since then?

Hey Matt, I had sent you an e-mail about 2 weeks ago, just wondered if you got it or not.

Now it would be nice for Yokomo to actually release their two bodies that can no one can get in the states. Its kinda like not being able to get ANY of the Orion tires that were handout in South Africa!

If you mean the "Stratus 2,0" from Yokomo, we bought some last year, when Andreas did the Jap nats. The difference was in the rear as they have different rules in Japan according to the position for the rear wing compare to the bumper.
If it is this one, I would not bother.

That's the type D. Protoform complained it looked too much like their 2.0 so yokomo usa stopped selling it, in the states at least, I have no idea if it's available anywhere else.

They are still selling it in Japan... .. and what the funny thing is take a look at the New Tamiya B4 Legacy ..right next to the Yokomo D stratus... Tamiya did a very good job of almost copying it 95% accept for the Obvious B4 to Stratus differences ..and they handle very similar too

If your asking where I'm stationed at now, I'm at Kunsan Air Base in S. Korea, about 3 hours south of Seoul. I'm going to venture out into the country at the end of the month for a Yokomo cup race up in Seoul, should be an "experience" to say the least.
