Welcome to Shoutbox. Post your viewpoints here, but keep your posts civil.
Keith Tanaka: This year's D3 Hardbody Nats was unusual. Lower turnout of racers on Saturday, but as always a lot of fast, fun racing. Race report to be posted tomorrow (Tuesday), stay tuned. Oct 21, 2019 21:40:33 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: BPR opens at 9 am tomorrow (Sunday) for the second day of Nats races. "Mixed" race tech inspection opens at 11 am, closes at 11:30. GTP/Mid-Engine race after the lunch break. Oct 19, 2019 22:31:40 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Low turnout for today's Nats races. Hope to see more racers tomorrow at BPR for the "Mixed" race and GTP/Mid-Engine races, A lot of very good raffle prizes (model kits) for those who race tomorrow at the Nats. Also, get your t-shirt. Oct 19, 2019 22:30:09 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: So, for those who ordered a t-shirt(s), you'll get two t-shirts for the price of one!!!! Actually, the screen printed t-shirts are not bad, but just not as good as the digital printed ones. Oct 18, 2019 19:34:39 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Good news, bad news. The bad news, I received the t-shirts but they were incorrectly "screen printed" which is a lower resolution than "digital printing". The good news, vendor agreed to send me "digital printed" t-shirts at no cost. Oct 18, 2019 19:33:08 GMT -8

Eddie: Keith: Would a 1/25 scale Lotus Europa with a 3 3/4 wheelbase, 2 3/4 width be legal? If so, for which class? And what specs can it be built to? Thanks. Sept 22, 2019 15:38:58 GMT -8
