Terry - Glad you're liking the cells so much! Calm that car down and than you can bump it back up and still be able to control the car after time. That's awesome. Don't worry about rambling we all do it.

Jimmy...welcome back and enjoy your vacation in the states for the holidays. I'll give you a call next week before the 25th so we can chat in person. It's been a long time...LOL

Terry, glad you enjoyed those cells. Never too much talk so don't worry about that. When a product is good, it deserves to be talked about. LOL..

Ummm my car is to fast now I have to make some major changes to my setup to get it hooked up. It has so much power and torque off the corner its like driving on ice. My car was in a 4 wheel drift through the whole corner I had to regear it to calm it down a little so I can drive it.(Im sorta new yet) I would say Im speechless but I talk way too much. If ya all already havent noticed. And I was running a monster stock on rubber that needed a comm cut 4 runs ago and I made 4 runs tonite the last 2 on Fukuyamas. So now someone explain somthing to me. The two least expensive packs in my box blow the two others out of the water so bad that I am embarased to run them again. Thank you. I have been racing stuff my whole life and I have a hard time swallowing someone else having better equipment than I do. Because I work harder than anyone else to make sure thats not possible. And now I have one less thing to worry about .

Thanks alot,
Terry Schmidt

told ya I talk too much but I had to say something to someone and my wife doesnt want to hear about it.

I was originally wanting to go but our drivers are prepping for the Birds instead. So hopefully, our fukuyama customers and friends will do a good showing and get on the podium. Good luck to you and those that are going.

My pack just came, and all I have to say is that they are awsome. I just have one complaint, the sticker with the info on it covers where it says GP3300.

So..does that mean I can't show up with my Radio Shack car and race...

I think you'll have to enter some qualifying races...
you may want to check the IFMAR web site.

It's top 10 or 20 in Mod from the ROAR nats. I wonder...

Or you can send in a letter saying that you are the bomb and they might let you run hehe.

Well I know for the most part they take in former world champs, and national champs. And I believe that some of the larger companies get to send drivers of their choosing. Just dont know what it takes exactly...
