hmmm, mid june is definitely later than the reg deadline for iic in vegas (may 12).... any idea if the finals will be scheduled to overlap?

Anyone gonna try their hand at Offroad @ the Union City stop? I know that there are at least 5-6 local guys running Durgas/501x.If you plan on coming and have an offroad setup,bring it!

Forget offroad. The big question is will Arluck "bring" his Concourse "game" for GT-2 or just concede once again to So Cal ?

Arluck and concourse?Are you speaking in code? I am confused.I forgot to mention that offroad racing is for those that are actually fast at onroad.Some need not apply.

I'm officially conceding every concourse for every race EVER!! Sometimes you just gotta know when you're beat, otherwise you end up like STLSLOWASHELL.

Default Memphis TCS...

I just wanted to let everyone who participated in the Memphis regional, whether a racer, spectator or spouse you helped make this a great weekend for all involved. I especially want to thank Tamiya (Gary and Larry) for allowing us to host their event yet again.

To all of our out of town guests, we love having you, come back any time...we ALWAYS run a mini class!!!!

Doc,
How did your FF01 run?
Doesn't look like I will be coming out this summer
I can only hope the Finals are at Trackside

Wound up using an old-school Benz D2 DTM body instead of the VW because the wheels bound when the chassis was slammed. Car was a rocketship (I mean that literally) in the straight parts but getting it to turn was..problematic. I need to use different front tires, put adjustable camber links up front to get some camber in the darn thing, and play around with setup to get it to turn in.

When that happens, Masters is TOAST!!! MUAAaaaahhhhhh

Still bummin' that I missed this one, but it looks like the Alabama Team was well represented. Congrats to Heath, Fuzzy, Masters, Randy B (running my TA05), Ratboy, and the others for bringing home some cookies, and some SWEET door prizes.......GOTTA LOVE TAMIYA FOR THOSE DOOR PRIZES!!!!

As for my weekend, I finally finished up my CR01 Toyota Land Cruiser......
