Regarding the grumblings about the GT-2 A2 finish, I feel like I must put my 2 cents in because I too was NOT there..

First off, the "other" guys name is J.B(short for John Ben), at least have some respect and call him by his name.

Secondly, I know for a fact that if roles were reveresed and Orlando was up on the chopping block, so to speak, this entire thread would be shorter by 2-3 pages. It would not have even been mentioned unless one of us who were NOT there made others aware there was even an questionable "incident" to begin with. But funny enough, here we are, 4 pages later discussing something that happened a week ago.

Anyone who truly understands racing, whether it be 1:10 or 1:1 scale, know this was strictly a racing deal. Take a break form the keyboard and move on.

First off I don't know either driver. Second off I was speaking my opinion and not being openly critical. Lastly if it was a clean passing attempt then why didn't he put it on three laps earlier? It is my opinion that when he rounded that final turn he went for it but didn't make it. If he had it would have been an incredible pass. It's my opinion again that he couldn't carry the speed to pull it off unless he drove the other car out to the wall. Finally I stated that I would hope that in the heat of the moment I would have the adrenal control to stay off the throttle until we were both marshaled. It was strictly a racing deal and like most racers will tell you a rough finish will cause controversy and discussion. That's part of the game too.

Sweet, you just got us another page by voicing yet another unsolicited opinion.
At least I was there. Right on top of it actually.

Doc, grandpa, and other nice comments. Thank you ! I indeed hope to do well in japan and feel that with the help of all past champs, motor guys, carpet dudes, & etc. I stand a good chance to place well. GT2 race .......... Its history so lets discuss more important matters at hand. Japan strip clubs? I need addresses, cover charge, rules, costs, etc. Doc look forward to an email soon to talk motor tips. Thanks again to Tamiya for another great season and all there support.

Brandon,
I was thinking what would be the best place to practice for Japan, the only track that would be close would be the IIC in Vegas. Reason being the carpet they use is brand new, like Japan, traction goes up and your set-up will change too, like Japan, but alas no mini class in Vegas!
Oh well, maybe you can ask Scottie if you can go there to just practice your mini, I wonder what he would say?
Just my 2$

Not to stir the pot or anything, but we didn't realize we needed your permission.

There are down sides to the first amendment (or Canadian CRF). You've got to take the bad with the good. Just my unsolicited opinion.

Sarcasm, that's exactly what I was thinking, all of our opinions have been unsolicited and then there was just one more while at the same time attempting to put it to bed. (more sarcasm by the way).
It was a racing deal, some say bad deal, some say not.
Didn't have to be there.

There is a desperate need for a punctuation mark denoting sarcasm. It would likely make internet forums more pleasant.

My bad.
