  1. so Andy let me get this straight , What your saying is tony's a POS because he wanted to try and race in a series that he owns when he knows there could be issues because of his involvement but he gave it a shot anyways and his fear of it not working out came true and showed its evil head to him before the third race.when most likley a driver came up to complain and he probably said to him self "i guess this wont work after all, i better not race so there wont be anymore issues".... is this what makes him fat and what ever else you have to say about him? i gotta say power to Smoke for seeing an issue and dealing with it in a proper way, its no secret he really wanted to run the series so to put his personal wants to the side to do the right thing is a true class act.
  2. IMCA meeting along with prostock, street stock, and cruisers will be next week
  3. I agree with you 100% I much prefer a raceable track and not a slip in slide not bashing anyone with saying that. but at the same time sliding around the track can be a lot of fun from a drivers seat... when you can see.... and you have all your wheels on... scratch the wheels part that's fun too
  4. I say it from a safety standpoint... there is not much safety in an enduro tacks like glenridge, malta,the bowl and accord are small and you can keep the speeds down or water them to keep them down even more... when you go to tracks like fonda and the valley you can get a ton of speed and there is not much in these cars from a safety standpoint (hoop, screen, chain the doors, no glass pretty much sum up the rules) ive run several of these events and I love them and I know the risks and the rewards if fonda still had it I would have went (against my better judgment on safety but hey I run when ever and where ever I can) but I am glad they have chosen not too. cant wait for the ridges though its always a fun time

  9. now that's thinking outside the box
  10. You realize electric cars exist correct? It's very doable and safe. I remember a couple years ago I brought it up on here with a mostly positive response. I believe the main negative response was that they wouldn't be noisy   yes i do know they exist, the rock im coming out from under isnt that big.... In theory yes they would work but when you think of the cost of the Battery ( ball park of $1800 who knows how long they would last in racing use) charger (quick charger $800) then the cost the track would need to put up to upgrade there fire crew (batteries are a bit different to take care of and alot more dangerous) and these are just a couple of things that quickly come to mind.  so right there would put a major damper on a 4cyl guy wanting to build a electric race car and thats with out getting into programing, cost of car, safely building it, or the better fire protection to drive it. to me if it ever happened it would be a ticking time bomb for some one (fan or competitor) to get hurt and put an end to it   
  11. ramspatsjags14.... i would love to see you get behind the wheel of an electric race car... a good hit and next thing you know you have acid leaking, fires(i would rather a gas fire than a battery fire any day) it would not be safe by no means or even close to being cost effective.... i could go on for days but ill just chalk it up to i completely disagree with your statement.... no matter what the PR would be because There WOULD be mass amounts of negative to go with that
  12. only one way to find out jake put a bid in you know you want too
