    Paul, this is the most active thread in years on this forum. Why would you want to slam the brakes on it?

    I also hate Facebook and it still sucks, so maybe Maya is right.


    Seriously, I find nothing deep, insightful or clever about that quote. Maybe if was still in elementary school I would be moved.

    10 out of 14 guys show up to the *Nats* (of all races) knowingly with illegal bodies? The top racers in the country? No way! The problem is obviously the rule book, not the racers.

    Ben White

    George Mikez informed me that long time Dallas racer Ben White passed recently from a massive heart attack. I don't any of the details. He was well liked and a heck of a good guy. As far as I know he...

    Paul, you're absolutely right. It was inappropriate to discuss this on your forum, and your efforts went rudely unacknowledged. Thank you for creating the Texas form.

    +1 Thanks Paul. I enjoyed your race reports.

    There's been little posting about the Nats since it's conclusion. I'm surprised by the apathy. I remember when the Div. 1 Nats were a big deal. What...

    Before I became interested in HO, I raced 1/24th scale. Two different tracks I raced at also had HO tracks. For some reason they never caught on. Including with me. I had no interest at that time. So...

    Nice track!

    The HO forum has always been slow. Which is kind of odd. It's by far the most practical form of home/club slot car racing. And commercial racing for that matter (it doesn't require...

    Scale Auto answered my email. I like Lanemaster, but it turns out it's also pretty pricey. That wouldn't be an issue for commercial use. but for home use it's kind of hard for me to justify. I ended...

    Thanks, Paul. I downloaded demos for all the above. I'd like to be able to have qualifying. As far as I could tell Trackmate doesn't have that feature.

    Lanemaster Still In Business?

    I'm interested in buying Lanemaster for my 4 lane Max Trax track. I emailed them early yesterday and haven't heard from them. From Goggling I get the impression that they're no longer in business....

    I don't know how Ron or Rande can enjoy such hollow victories. There's no accomplishment in whipping up on racers that aren't near as good as you. Forget that it's not right. Why would would they...

    What kind of person would feel compelled to rain on a 6 year old's parade?

    Moderator, you should remove these posts. This forum should be reserved for celebrating the Nats and it's winners.

    Gary,

    That's why it's no fun to race in the DFW area. The competition is too frickin' tuff! Too many really good racers. ;)

    Congrats to the local boys! That's quite a showing.

    That sounds good Paul. It doesn't appear but a hand full of us care anyway, so I'm not sure what methods you choose will really matter. Oh well... :(

    Why No Retro Racing Forum?

    Paul,

    Retro racing really seems to be catching on. It's certainly rekindled my interest in slots. Why no OWH dedicated retro racing forum like "those other guys"? :confused: They actually have two...

    I 100% agree with that. To the uninitiated looking from the outside in, this has to be an intimidating and not very appealing hobby.

    That's a neat a$$ track. I don't care for magnet cars because they seem too fast for the size of most HO tracks. That track is big enough that I bet magnet cars are very fun to drive.
