Just ribbing you Howard, they are beautiful cars though.

$910.00 for the A700 EVO I think, so you could buy LM's for your 5+ best friends.

Should have a good amount of LeMans cars this weekend for Madison's Carpet Challenge. I'll take a picture if I remember, some of the guys are far better at painting than myself. Perry (Howler) has painted the wheels flat black for some of his schemes - looks awesome!

I know Eric Whiteside will represent from IL and he will has a new body for it....please take alot of pictures and post here. And video.

There is one major reason I know I am slow....(well, I am sLOw in general no matter what...) with the good looking body and detailed paint job, it will be slow....my goal last week was trying to touch the board once, I ended up touching the wall like 3 times and got flipped couple times...alot more then what I want but the body still look like 95% new...some shoe-glue reinforcing is a must. But I think my next race, I will try to trash this body so I can go FAST again...no more holding back.

The good looking body does hold me back alot....on almost every corner I am willing to let other ppl pass me so they won't try to overtake me and touch my body...that ain't going to happen again, I will need a race and trash ready body now.

I agree on the body Solara. Gotta just dive in and enjoy the fact that the body looked good before one run, at least for me, lol. That black Audi r18 I did a week ago looks a bit rough already. I think it's just a fact that the first body on this car is marked for death before it's even run. No other way to tun the car than to push the heck out of it and take the lumps.

Ya need a racer and a show body that's all.

That WAS the plan until the Boss and the help both got sick.

That was some seriously fun racing. Not a bad showing for the class. Sorry the Winthrop Harbor guys didn't make it.
