Btw, there are some huge potholes on the MI Ave side of Morgan - they may not be visible as the rain has filled them up, and you can't tell how deep they are - you have to go right to the side of the road to get around them, in fact the whole road is so bad right now I'd recommend taking the Carpenter entrance if possible. :)

Oh, one last thing - everyone was drooling over the McLaren ASCs last time - FYI there is a $10 off coupon for them right now - check out the shop News - but it expires tonight so you'd need to order now! ;)

Guys, you have missed the first meeting of the reflexracing fun club.
So far we have three members:
Peter (me) - the reflex fanboy
D - the fanboy hater
C - he just happened to be around but really does not give a crap

We have put together a list of the future activities of the club with responsibles:
1) D will print out a picture of the reflexracing team
2) I have to lick the picture religiously every time just before I put down my car to the RCP
3) we wil enforce a ban on all non-slick tires because putting grooves in tires is silly as they decrease the gripping area of the tire (so no grooves, no radials)
4) we will install the next HFAY track layout so that the RCPs smooth side will be up. Reasons are the same as above in 3).

Future wannabe members have to meet the following criteria:

Fanboy
1) you have to drop hundreds of dollars to update your mr-02
2) dremel the crap out of a brand new beautiful autoscale body til it looks like a pile of horsesh@t
3) have a printout on hand of a reflexracing setupsheet all the time
4) bug D in every five minutes for another hop-up part which will turn your rig into the ultimate ****car

Hater
Just hate the funboy and make fun of him every time he mentions setup - beware its gonna look a little silly when he beats your @ss with his perfectly set up racecar.

If you just don't care you still can be a member like C ;)
