I take no credit in finding this, was simply referred to it by Mark who found it while perusing the magazine for the lastest article on how to spice up his sex life and how to burn more fat to achieve the perfect body. But anyhow, back to rally. On page 74 of the latest Men's Journal (Dec. 2005) there is a 3-4 page article about rally. The author apparently rents a VSC car and races it at LSPR a few years back. Tim O'Neil took second at the event and it talks about how the author went to the school before tackling the event (and without a doubt was taught how invaluable and impossible it is to rally without Left Foot Braking). Also apparently show's Doug Havir's car wadded up and says "another Suby after a date with a tree" or something like that.

Are you talking about the rally article being great news, or the news that there is a magazine to help us spice up our sex lives and burn extra fat?

;)




Grant-

Are you making a joke about Tim and LFB or taking an actual dig? I can't tell and would hate to think it's the latter.

I'm seldomly serious and haven't been to the program so can't make any judgements about the curriculum. I'd go in a heartbeat if I had any disposable income and respect him for what his program is doing for US Rally. Side note: Mark said it does talk about left foot braking, but the author liked handbrake turns better. Oh, and he had Becker co-driving for him too. I think it's absolutely awesome that the article made it to print and can't wait to check it out later tonight.

I'm happy about rallying being in the journal. AND I may learn some new sex secret in the process of reading it...

Other than that about the LFB thing, I do it, some don't, if you're fast you're fast however you manage it. No one reading it will know the difference anyway, in fact it just gives casual rally fans something else interesting and differnt to talk about... Hell with that said; I'm going to start talking about Left Foot Throttle!

Peace, MJ

When I took up ice racing sometime back in the Pleistocene, I asked the fellow who was coaching me about left-foot braking. He said, "Brakes? You're using the BRAKES?? No wonder you're slow!"

I shot the story at LSPR last year. I was in the class at Timo's with the author too.

I have not seen it yet, but I have been told that they did not use any shots of the cars in action (except one of Lurch), which I am really disappointed since I gave them quite a lot of good stuff to choose from x(

You really need to lighten up, boy.
You ax a guy who posts operating room photos of gaping wound on his back who starts a poll asking folks to guess if it was a, b, or c and one of the choices is he was attacked by a gang of Lesbian Scooter Nuns who were jealous of his fine ride IF HE'S SERIOUS!!!!!


You, boy, are too serious.


And Grant doesn't doesn't have any excess fat to burn.
And no sex life either, but he WILL have a normal aspirated Cossie motor soon (I got you a manifold for carbies Grant!! brou-ha-ha!!!)

See what happens when you hole a radiator and drive around in 5th gear with your flashers on all day to keep from overheating? You get in Men's Jounal.

Thanks Morgan! At least the picture looks fast. :+

Eric. (My abs are um...well...there in there somewhere.)

Heh, Morgan, welcome to the world of working with Rodale Press...:(

I worked there for years. The MJ guys do some realy great stuff, and some real bogus work, too. One thing I remember, they are NOT car people. Their photo eds need to get out of their dark little cubicles, literally.

They actually lost the photos (good thing for digital) and I had to resend them a month ago.

Actually its Wenner Media that puts out Mens Journal.

Rodale Press does Mens Health, which I think has a bit more rock hard abs involved. MJ is a bit more travel/adventure oriented.
