Tard,

My fee is reasonable. Least you can do for that motor I "gave" you.... Did I miss that last check for $100 per national point? Maybe the mail lost it and you may need to send it again.

I watched the race yesterday and just loved it.

one car got 55 lap penalty in tech for a VLSD. the other car got throught tech clean. But we had way to many (read more than none) driver errors. 6 PUY penalties between both cars. We were supposedly nominated first and second by our fellow racers to be crushed (second year in a row much thanks). Jay Lamm, the head domo, then selected us to be crushed and let us choose which car it would be thanks for that. Since both car at that point were no longer in and contention the bigger bucket of crap was picked (it was a close call). We set fastest lap in the car that was not crushed and third fastest with the car that was crushed. Since the fastest lap was set near the end of the race when most of the total crap was no longer on the track I believe we could/should have had both fastest and second fastest if the crushed car had been around at the end. All in all I still had fun and I think my co-drivers did too.

The crush video is especially good. Three cheers for the indestructible John Phillips roll cage. It held up amazingly well despite many attempts to collapse it.

Yep, we had a blast... got blasted... got crushed.

God bless America. It would be unfortunate to live in a country where we did not have the opportunity to crush cars that the unfortunate can not afford.

Matt, you too could have bought this car for about a half race's worth of R888's. [Razz]

I think we should only enter one Miata as "Team Kent" and all the rest should belong to other teams. [Big Grin]
