I beleive that sketch is on the "best of Will Ferrel" DVD.

It's great. I also love all SNL skits with Christopher Walken, he's the man!

I saw Jay Mohr at the Tampa Improv last year and he did a whole bit on Christopher Walken...It was something about being on set with him and Christopher freaking out that Jay's dog had no tail. How can you tell if he's mad at you or happy, he has no tail...

This is as good a place as any. We will heading up to the track tonight, and will try to get some feedback about practice today. First report should be Tomorrow night, that will accompanied by photos and reports from Jarrod Pilone.

Thier should be plenty to talk about, as racers respresenting most of the major teams will be there.

Schumacher,Hpi,Tamiya,Xray,Corally, Associated,Yokomo, Not so sure about Losi though.

We got rained on hardcore..

it rained halfway through Round 1 of qualifying (around 2:10 PM it started coming down)and put a stop to the rest of the day (I think it's still drizzling outside).

We made it through stock, novice, and half of 19t and that's it. Hopefully we'll fare better tomorrow. I was planning on doing major photo shooting during round 2 and got screwed by mother nature instead

I only got a handful of images during practice, but here they are at http://www.fseara.org/gallery/fseara2004

Here's RCPaintinPete's Caddy!

It would be really interesting if they let it go in the rain like they do in Europe. Rain, tires, crazy set ups, drifting, etc. Then watch the best guys in the world show their real improvised talent. My 2 cents.

That has got to be one of the coolest pictures of an R/C car ever. Seeing light under the inside tire, reminds me of pictures coming up over the hill at Sears Point. Awesome picture Jarod!

That was one of the worst thunderstorms I've seen. At one time we opened the trailer door to see our gas can floating by in about 6" of water. Here is a pic of the aftermath.
