Entry form should be up this week.

As a further effort to attract more racers, and to offer an economic stimulus package of sorts, we (Motonica USA) are considering offering cash bonuses for drivers who can either beat track records (fastest lap, most laps in a main, etc.) or pre-determined qualifying times in all 3 classes- 1/8th, 1/10th, and IGT. What do you guys think?

We already have Byron Fuel contingency, we'll have raffle prizes, and special post qualifying races for the fastest non-sponsored guys, so this will be one more thing to add to the mix.

Goddamn, enough with this sushi crap!

I love sushi and eat it whenever I can (rather when my paycheck allows me ), am I to safely assume this place in NV has THE best sushi in all of the west coast? I used to go to a restaurant by my house that had an authentic Sushi Chef straight from Yokohama, Japan. The way he made sushi was masterful and artistic to say the least. The taste and presentation of the sushi was a force to be reckoned with. Then he closed down.

Robert I see you already working on that last week, 1/4 back straight on 4 wheels, 3/4 of the back straight on lid doing record time the rest of the straight, that would be top 3 finish for sure LOL, jk. I hear there's gonna be a good turn out at boulder city this weekend and posted for guys to bring out there sc8's, they even doing practice on Friday for out of towners or whoever wants to practice. It's the Silver State warm-up race weekend.

Is that 1/5, IGT race still on for this Month? See you at boulder if not at the Silverbowl on Sunday for practice, my parts should be in, tell Fred to Break in his motor at home and use the track to run his car.

Argh, I hate that picture on the 8th scale. Why not an R11 or some other closed cockpit car instead of the dying midget driving the doorstop body.

Too soon to tell. I am scheduled to go to Australia soon for a meeting. I don't know when it is supposed to happen aside from "soon".

I am going to be using the Parma R12 body and the Protoform P909:

http://www.prolineracing.com/p-654-p909.aspx

http://www.shopatron.com/product/par...71.17744.0.0.0

Gotta see how either body works. Getting tired of the moronic LMP open cockpit design with a body that looks like a door wedge and a retarded midget driving.

On the current Motonica car? The P8.0R? Garen says otherwise. He likes the Parma body and says it gives more steering and he has no plans to run the Protoform body.

I personally like the new P909 body. It looks way more functional than the retarded midget driving the cheese wedge.
