At this years ProSeries race they were required, based on testing they don't affect performance but do help with noise.
They are required on all 1/10 & 1/8 open cars, I think we should adopt this rule to make us uniform with the current Roar and IFMAR rules. Just a little extra to show the boys we want to be treated equally.
+1 Its gonna come down to we are gonna have to use it so might as well begin now

I think the INS box would be something to incorporate into these rules.
Your finger is on the pulse as usual

The air filter system that comes with the Kyosho car 'looks" like an ins box - presumably it's NOT????

Mr. Vargas: let this fine racers discuss and take care of the rules for the class we all love. Please don't make the moderators close also this thread because of you.

I don't think that your actions are helping promoting the class you love and the products that you represent.
Find another more efficient way to promote your fine products, like any other company

Miker, Oskygt is his own man.

Thanks for your kind words and concerns, but I wasn't doing any promotions of our fine products. My presence on this thread was to shine light upon the potential bias due to the majority of the selected "board members" that indeed represent and/or sell a competitor's product.

We welcome all brands to compete in our GT racing events and expect nothing less than the same from them.

Thanks again, whoever you are.

One more thing....

I wasn't the person that started the 4 letter word attacks on that last thread, so if those people wish to ignore civility, it might be on them if it gets shut down again.

Thanks for you understanding.

I can also verify that Oskygt is not Jspeed. Oskygt is one of the Puerto Rican GT racers that has helped Jneg grow the class in PR. He is a really great guy that loves and cares about GT racing and the direction it is going. He is part of the group in PR that is doing something right: they have grown GT from 8 racers starting to at times, 35+ at club races at any given time.

Miker, I stand on my own two feet, don't talk about things or people you don't even know or try to insinuate or put doubt's in the heads of the people on this forum. But if you must know something about me ,I started racing in 1988, I was introduced to the hobby to get my mind off of my 2 year old daugthers death, and since then it's kept me sane,also i'm a retired Narcotics detective, served 31 years on the force,Army veteran, i'm 6'2 216 lbs, 32 waist speak english, spanish and german, have a BA in criminoligy.. anything else? Oh and btw, I'm a cancer patient. And like Jeff said, I'm my own man who has his cojones in place, so don't BS with stupid remarks, sounds like school girl gosip, and in parting, I would like to say F-U very much. Thank You.

Iím going to add this here for those that donít know you can do this. If there are users you simply donít care to hear from you can add them to your ignore list.

Go to the User CP at the top left side of the forum, when in there look at the side and select ďedit ignore listĒ simply type the name of the user you donít want to see there post, add their name and hit Okay. Then add another if you wish.

Good Luck and keep up the good work everyone.
