Well some of us have other things to pay for such as rent, food and gas to get to work and to have a little left over to race. Nice snobbish attitude though.

So, while Im reviving old cars, I was thinking of updating my F103 GT Courage. What rubber tires would work on the black carpet? I might go foam but rubber would last longer.

I had no idea I was involved in either a knife OR a gun fight and the implied threat is unacceptable. I am well aware who RobK is but Im not beholden to him in any way. I'll leave it at that.
