Welcome to Shoutbox. Post your viewpoints here, but keep your posts civil.
mkalelaw: They are just messing with you by being boring. Feb 11, 2016 20:06:40 GMT -8
timneja: Geez---isn't there ANYBODY ALIVE on here?? You'se guys are BORING!! :) :) Feb 11, 2016 19:24:19 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Sign-ups for the WRC Enduro begins on Sun. Feb. 21st at BPR (see post above for more info). Feb 6, 2016 22:36:43 GMT -8
eddieshorer: Please take my 10-question Survey. I'll be using info from the survey to write a paper that I'll be presenting at the National Popular Culture conference in Seattle, WA in March. Thanks![br] Feb 1, 2016 16:27:59 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Both Hitman controllers belong to hardbody racers. Contact Debby Watterson at BPR to retrieve your lost controllers. Jan 31, 2016 20:19:09 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Today, two 3rd Eye "Hitman" controllers were left at BPR. Both controllers were unmarked (no ID). One controller had some metal brackets attached to the heatsink while the other controller had no modifications. Both controllers were left with Debby at BPR. Jan 31, 2016 20:18:21 GMT -8
timneja: IT would be good if we can find a source of Wonder Rubber tires for our hardbody cars!! Anyone know of someone willing to make 1.1" diameter 3/32 wheel Wonder tires?? Jan 30, 2016 15:24:06 GMT -8
timneja: Good job Craig---I'll find something to chase you around with!! 57 Chevy!! Jan 30, 2016 15:09:00 GMT -8
craigg: Pulled out my '50 Olds that I haven't looked at since the Nats two years ago. There were 5 different things wrong with it. No wonder it didn't run worth a darn then. All fixed now, maybe it will be good for tomorrow. Jan 30, 2016 12:23:16 GMT -8
timneja: Oboy oboy, i"ll have to dig out the "old" cars for the inline race!! :) Jan 24, 2016 13:47:50 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: For those who want to race in the "inline" race on the 31st, but don't have a car, there will be plenty of loaner cars available. Jan 23, 2016 17:34:12 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: The races on Sunday Jan, 31st will be: first race is "INLINE" NASCARs (40's-50's & 60's-70's), second race will be either a "Mixed" race or a GTP-NASCAR race. Jan 23, 2016 17:32:02 GMT -8
timneja: I'll be back!! I've still got a 50's car, a 60's car--an 80's car and a late model Nascar!! I've also got GTP and if we EVER run the Mini's --one of those too!! Still plenty of stuff to play with--and a new WGT car! So I can play!! :) Jan 20, 2016 16:38:54 GMT -8
gonzalez: ahhh thats nothin i let him win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL.that was some awesome racin sunday.missed you tim hope to see you the 31st.good seein bob better get back on the track cause were comin after you!!!!!!!!!! Jan 20, 2016 14:22:25 GMT -8
timneja: Attaboy Vic!! Good job!! You've managed to upstage Gonzo---he had some really quick times and been in the 4's in practice!! But you're the first in a race! Congrats!! :) Okay Gonzo--first in the 4.8's?? Jan 18, 2016 17:58:00 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Sunday's monthly races saw a new record set for fast lap. Victor Dubrowsky drove his Batman Porsche 962 to a 4.992 sec. lap during the mixed race. Congrats to Victor on achieving the first ever sub 5 sec. lap during a hardbody race on the flat track. Jan 18, 2016 14:54:16 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: The Lap Differential chart has been updated. "Hardtop" 3 C's has been added. '46-'56 is now 40's-50's stock cars and '57-'79 becomes 60's-70's NASCARs. Jan 13, 2016 17:42:42 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: We'll decide this Sunday what inlines we'll run on the 31st. Maybe run both the 40's-50's and 60's-70's together for an inline race using the lap differential? Jan 12, 2016 19:43:40 GMT -8
timneja: Hmmm--- I think I have a 64 GTO body still-- might have to put a new chassis together for that!! :) Jan 12, 2016 18:21:45 GMT -8
timneja: Always fun racing with ya Gonz!! I'll have to build another inline--I sold my quick one to Mel Moon!! But I WILL get one together to race!! 50's or 70's Gonzo--what are you going to race?? Jan 12, 2016 18:20:42 GMT -8
