    So what classes is this offered? Surely not a single pan car class? They would not allow any money for racing regardless here in Jax. (if I get the complex built). Cant you give the drivers either a gas card or gift certificate from Michaels's instead of cash? Give the driver a choice.
    Your correct about Fort Meyers.not travels 6 hours one way- to old.

    Dave I see your new post about consiistency money. I highly disagree -racing for money. The new group that took over the Apex club is racing for free but awarding money for the finishes. I as well as Tom marlowe that lives 10 miles from the track will not race there. Money brings out the worst in racing. I will not participate in any money races.
    I talked with Izzy today and he said this was for discussion for next year? But you posted it for the Fort. If this is to be at Mintregg I guess that's the end of me at the series.
    Giving gas cards or gift certificates , entry fees is much better . You can take the cash given and do these instead of cash. But I do not go to any races with money offered to the racers. Plus it is not ROAR legal to race for money even though we are not ROAR legal ( no membership require to run in the state races).

    Dave I just saw that you told Izzy we could not run the new XFactor 25.5 motors. I know ROAR is fallin behind but we shouild be able to run them. Question are the handout motors ROAR legal. Or the new Fantom Stators? Besides that we have not been following the simple ROAR rule about membership for quite awhile. Can't remember when the last time our ROAR memebership was checked?
    There are quite afew racers with these motors that you could be turning away for the race. You ought to let them run- espicially if the others are not legal either. Bob will never be able to aprove any motors until he is replaced by someone else.

    I will be racing for the first time in 4 weeks this weekend. I want to take it easy with the bending down to be on the safe side. so at the state race could you let me slide on turn marshalling for this event only..
    Also I heard from Izzy about the guys in Tampa putting the copper rotor from Trinity in there fantom 25.5 VTA motors. I thought this was Illegal? Maybe for the top 3 qualifiers announce they will be inspected before the mains (out of the car)?

    Dave not sure if I told you . I won't be able to make the first race- please give my stuff to Izzy. Probably the same thing for Tom Marlowe ( I'll check and let you know). I will be getting Eye surgery (cataracts ) on Sept 19th and can't do anything for two weeks then the other eye on Octocber 3rd. After 2 weeks I will be fine and ready for the First Carpet race (?) at 386.

    Dave just wondering how your going to deal with the new Cheater DASH ESC. That's right down Robert Stephens alley. I won't make the first state race- getting eye surgery (cataracts) on the 19th and 3rd. Can't do much for the 4 week period. I will be at the 1st carpet race. Bill

    Dave I was talking to Crowder today and he mentioned that 1/12th was going to spec tires. He said a green stripe and blue stripe? so is one of those for the GT12 class? We have been running purple stripe tires until Crowder came up with those blue striped tires for the BASH. They are harder than the purple stripes and according to Chris they should be faster on carpet.
    So have your talked with CRC about their spec tires for GT12 or BSR? We have had no problems with what we were running until Chris came up with the blue striped tires ( there are 4 points harder than my CRC's).

    Dave do you have any idea when you will have the new schedule out. If we are racing at Valkaria Labor day for the region race - when is there state race ( still the 3rd weekend)?

    Dave thanks for listening to me about the GT12USA class. It would be a great addition to the carpet part the series. The GT17.5 has died but might be better for the outside part of the series. But I was talking with Izzy and he said you were thinking of splitting the GT17.5 and GT12 for the carpet series . Bad idea as I will not build a GT17.5 car just to race 2 races For the pan car guys : GT12, WGT-R and F1.. For the January class you might want to add a special 12th class- either 17.5 or 13.5 because of the birds.
