Welcome to Shoutbox. Post your viewpoints here, but keep your posts civil.
Keith Tanaka: Also, there's a crash at the end of the video clip as Michael Kale's car deslots into Ken Dylke's lane and Michael's car doing a 360 in the air after the collision. May 22, 2015 18:52:00 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: I just posted another "Slo Mo" video clip of a mixed race on 5-17-15. Check out Bob Krigbaum's and Craig Gilbert's cars on black and purple as well as Ken Dylke's car on yellow in the video clip. May 22, 2015 18:48:54 GMT -8 *
Keith Tanaka: Is that why Phil's got a smile on his face. He's usually doesn't smile, but you and Tom went crazy on the podium. May 19, 2015 21:21:07 GMT -8
gonzalez: hey kieth that was a pretty ugly picture of me on the podium!! May 19, 2015 21:05:24 GMT -8
gonzalez: that sub 5 sec lap is proving pretty elusive May 19, 2015 20:50:14 GMT -8
gonzalez: i missed you mr neja!!! May 19, 2015 20:48:53 GMT -8
timneja: Dang--had to WORK on something else Sunday!! Missed it!! But Hector STILL did not get the allusive 4 second lap?? Come ON Gonzo!! What's up with that?? :) Hopefully I can make the 5th Sunday!! May 18, 2015 16:58:16 GMT -8
mkalelaw: Another good day of racing. Think everyone had a good time. May 17, 2015 20:05:02 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: And for Gonzo (just kidding), I posted the "preliminary" rules for two new racing classes, FPS (Foreign Production Sports) and Under 2.5 Liter Trans Am. These are preliminary rules and may change if necessary. May 16, 2015 19:08:28 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: I just posted the "Preliminary" race rules for the 4 Hr. GTP Enduro above. These rules may be revised if needed prior to the enduro. Any changes will be posted on this website as well as announced prior to the enduro. May 16, 2015 19:06:02 GMT -8
timneja: Looking forward to it!! see you soon May 14, 2015 10:30:20 GMT -8
mkalelaw: Bunch of racing junkies. May 14, 2015 7:36:25 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Only 4 days til our next hardbody races at BPR. Can't wait to race again! May 13, 2015 19:44:10 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Most of you now have one more handicap lap than previously. You can thank Phil Nyland for that, don't waste the added gift of one lap :D May 13, 2015 19:41:55 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: The Racer Handicaps for NASCAR have been updated and posted above. Note that a new lap total record for NASCAR was set by Phil Nyland with 245 laps. This new record resulted in every racer's handicap being recalculated. May 13, 2015 19:40:26 GMT -8
timneja: That's the point Mike---Don't want the newer cars! :) May 12, 2015 20:50:44 GMT -8
mkalelaw: I am not suggesting changing the Trans Am rules, just expand to the newer cars. Keep the rules. May 12, 2015 17:58:49 GMT -8
mkalelaw: I am not suggesting changing the May 12, 2015 17:58:05 GMT -8
timneja: I'm not in favor of changing Trans Am either--we've got several new class's we're toying with---that will give plenty of new cars to build for a while once those are in place/settled! Trans/Am would look really weird with the newer cars!! May 12, 2015 10:15:48 GMT -8
craigg: I would like to propose that the max width in 3C's be increased to 3 inches. This would allow some of the heavier bodies to remain more competitive with the new light weight cars. May 12, 2015 9:25:52 GMT -8
