RE: vote rejected

<p>I knew it was going to get ugly...</p>
<p>I voted early on and my vote never showed up (just guess what choice it was).</p>
<p>Now I just tried to make it count and the board showed that I'd already voted!</p>
<p>-----</p>
<p>Oh well, Since I retired the "golfball" and got the new shell introduced at CT, I feel better about myself but unless a sponsor that needs to look "racy" writes a check, I'm leaving it mousy Maroon.</p>
<p>I was going to paint it and ran out of time, but now I LIKE the look. If it was all painted up and shiney like the golfball used to look like, it'd have to be fast to fulfill the promise the paint made. The new shell has this, "waiting in the supermarket parking lot" look and if it even goes half-fasst, it'll be impressive to onlookers.</p>
<p>Sorry guys but I like the underdogs and I'm not alone. With the Pro cars in Parc Ferme', the only people interested in the backmarkers (which are everyone else) are the underdog lovers and I want to be the best at what I do.</p>
<p>for reference...</p>

RE: Should Junk Be Allowed?

<p>Having had more experience teching a crashed car than most...</p>
<p>Yes, the initial reaction by the Tech guys is negative, both in the US and Canada, but since the car was initially prepped well and in excellent mechanical condition, I was never once worried that it would pass all but "neat and clean" requirement.</p>
<p>Final results? Never turned away, one business card left by Doug Robinson at Sno*Drift, no dnfs, a few overall wins, a few thank-yous from other competitors who were afraid that their car would be the rattiest attending.</p>
<p>I now have the new shell and I saved a bunch of money that went into it instead of effort fixing the old one that's retired now anyway.</p>
