    Flat track for Eurosport classes?

    There were more Euro 1/24 cars. I heard Doc Norris got his 2nd concours of the week and many of the Chicago ISRA/USA crew were in the B main.

    And the word is "run", not "ran" - different tenses.

    You do realize that the "black" on the FK magnets is just a covering that can be easily removed with paint thinner. The color of the neo magnets is really dark gray. I found this out by accidently trying to remove the magnets by soaking the can in thinner.
    I've done so much with so little for so long it seems like I can do anything with nothing at all.

    I guess I'll be in the expert classes. WTG guys. Make my entire motor program useless. What are you idiots thinking. Let's make it cheaper for the guys? How is obsoleting people's programs and making them buy all new stuff to be able to race making racing less expensive.
