That looks like a fast ride, Darren. Did you paint the body yourself?

It would be great to see more pictures of other racers rides!

Default Represent TX

WOW! Darren that body is really nice. I was thinking about what all the guys from TX could do to represent TX. I was just thinking about putting a TX sticker on the wing. You blew my lil thought out the window with that body. You hit a home run. Great job! Lets all get together for some practice one day. I will be up at Mike's on Monday putting in some work. TX boys let's get'em ready! LET'S GET IT!

Hey Acting Bad, There have been a few of us that are going to Florida that have been running at Mikes in Porter on Saturdays.

Will be there this Saturday as well.

Hope to see you there.

Man looks like this will be a great GT race! Lots of great racers signed up.

I suspect with all these great drivers that it will be one of the biggest & most competitive GT8 races of the year!

Good luck to everyone!

Wished I could make it, but my current workload will not allow me to get away.

Anyway to get the race on LIVE RC? or is that already planned?
