okay, story behind the avitars is, My daughter(6 years old) loves to google images of funny animals. Those are put up mainly for her.(glad you enjoy them)
Trying to look through her 'file' is impossible.
I know she has hundreds of monkeys, just gotta find em.
Yeah I thought you had seen them, but it sucks that such a cool name is used for Bio Med?

I hadn't even noticed it was for Bio Meds. Well, I hope

they're working on something good!

That's a really neat thing to do for your daughter! Bet

she gets a kick out of seeing you use them!

Judi

I've got one to propose to Casper,
(and as I've stated I'm not voting till I decide to run or not, my vote shouldn't count unless I run)
But... The issue of Pro(and its not just you Casper buddy), but a lot of guys that are 'factory' in one realm while privateers in another.
In motorsports in general(which is how OUR rules are loosely based),
You can go up in equipment size, yet could not start over in the ranks as a beginner.
ie:motocross-if you are an eight year old expert,on a small bike, when you move up or grow up you are not suddenly a beginner level rider?
Casper- please dont take this AT all towards you personally, It is just something I have noticed as a little bit of a trend latley.

These are hard issues to sort out. Jimmy usually does a

pretty good job of moving people up. But a few have slipped

in. While I'm sure you're talking about stock and 19t, mod

is really brutal. Our guys are racing against full-factory, and

some even paid drivers. Ours only have battery or motor help.

So, it's a real can of worms!! Hard to compete when someone has an

unlimited supply of cars, parts, tires, batteries, motors, and a pay

check!!!!!!!!! Not to mention travel and hotels paid for.

Our sport R/C racing is kind of like NASCAR, Boris Said still has to race

against Little "E", and Stewart, while selling drinks just to try to keep

his team going!!!!!!

Boris could drive 'circles' around MOST nascar guys, If you gave him a chance to drive a car longer than ONE of the 'on road' races every year.
BORIS is the MAN!!!!
watch him drive, He can Drive ANY thing

Yes, Boris can drive. But he doesn't have sponsors, and yet

he's out there still having to compete against the best with their

unlimited supply of EVERTHING!! That was my point.

Trust me, even within NASCAR teams, it isn't all "even".

Ask my hubby, he's been involved with one of the teams!!

In R/C, at a big race, probably even the Cactus, you will

see full-factory drivers in the 19t class, and some will slide into

stock!! Matt Francis has been running 19t at big races for a long

time. Gee, I miss seeing Matt at the races!!

I get it, trust me I've dabbled in nascar long enough to see the REALITY of it.
(Southwest tour is the wosrt Ive dealt with)
Helped on a Hooters cup team for 2 seasons, Numerous local "nascar affiliated' tracks.
Sponsors' money can Really change an outcome of a race.
even if guy Do have motor and battery support.

The problem is there is no sactioning body keeping track of everyone so how do you police it fairly? I think drivers that are sponsered to the point were they have unlimited supplys available to them on race day differs from someone who is sponsered but doesnt have the unlimited supplies on race day. These guys still buy there own gear and pay there own way and many work hard for their sponsers in other ways that the top level drivers do not.

There is a difference that should be taken into consideration. Being sponsered by Trinity and losi is not the same as being sponsered by JoJo's batteries and Thin lizzy motors. Ithink that level of sponsership should race with the masses while the full factory should not.

Quite true, all of it.
This is one of the 'Variables' that we address in our hobby, that are different from other sports and or hobbies.
(and YES, if poker can be on the SPORTS channel, then r/c is a SPORT)
