  1. Calvin Coolidge: "Better to be silent, and be thought a fool; than speak, and remove all doubt." As to JFK... well, that's a post for a *completely* different board-filled-with-paranoid-conspiracy-theories. >:)
  2. That would be the exhaust pipe rusting through while it's on pre-grid.... >;)
  3. I know quite a few people who have entire miniature air forces and navies thanks to Shapeways. Nice work.
  4. 1) Remember these names, folks -- they'll be infesting IndyCART in a couple years.... 2) The act of a leading car chopping across the nose of a following car is known as "the Brazilian Cut". There Is A Reason For This. (Well, OK -- more than one.... >:) ) 3) This is why karts have bumpers.
  5. Um, guys -- just a side note: When posting stuff like this, you *might* want to check a little more closely to make sure the comments are PG-rated.... 'Jes' tryin' t' help y' out."
  6. Dog and I are in complete agreement on this. Cue fire and brimstone coming down from the skies, rivers and seas boiling, forty years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanoes, the dead rising from the grave, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria....
  7. Couldn't have been driven by Paul Tracy -- not enough impact marks from running into other cars.... >;)
  8. The drivers in the series disagree. It's annoying TA doesn't have full-season TV coverage right now -- some additional footage to illustrate what's going on would be helpful.
  9. Pirelli is the Official Tire Supplier -- that Pirelli was willing to listen to what TARC asked for, never mind actually *do* it....
  10. This is why TARC (and I believe SVRA had some input as well) asked Pirelli "design a radial which works like a bias-ply". The current TA2s are practically re-enacting the late-'60s/early-'70s TA racing....
  11. Hey, the outside line always worked for Richard Petty.
  12. Frankly, I was amazed I was able to write something that upbeat, considering not 24 hours earlier I'd just had to order one of my cats be put down (cancer in liver; failing heart; fluid buildup around major organs). And this was the cat who considered me "his human".
  13. I watch _Roadkill_. I also watch the car-restoration shows on Velocity. Episode of _Fantomworks_ -- someone brings in a Dodge. The crew pops the hood open, and I hear someone say, "Oh, look -- a Thermoquad." And a cold chill runs down my spine.... (I was not incorrect to react so. )
  14. Who cares? Strange Women Lying In Ponds Distributing Trophies is no basis for an auto-racing series -- Supreme Championship Power derives from the leading of laps and winning of races, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony! #youknewthiswascoming
  15. IMSMC: Son of Andre's Mustang is SPO-prep-level (at least, that's what it said on the front quarters). I think that's a bit above 500 pts., but I'm not sure.
  16. I suspect it's more the expectations that A Certain Class will have the most laps at day's end -- which is why it's a red-letter day when the car with the most laps *isn't* in that class (Daytona 2003; or a couple of events the Archer Brothers Eagle Talons won outright).
  17. Reminds me of something I wrote for _Car Wars_ many moons ago -- a combat bus design with all sorts of autonomous-operation tech on it, which one day powered up, drove out the gate of the facility it was built in, and went adventuring. From http://novacw.com/nm10-2.htm May 1, 20.46: The following report came from Magnum Motors's PR department: 'today saw the strangest event anyone has ever witnessed. We [the main facility in Austin] had been commissioned to build a customized version of our celebrated Camel bus -- this particular one being equipped exclusively with ener
  18. *Staff* can be Impaired -- in fact, I assumed it was mandatory, to deal with the constant rules-lawyering around here.
  19. Nebraska *used to* have vehicle-inspections -- the system failed when the farmers would bring their vehicles in for inspection, fail miserably, and not bother coming back; trying to arrest and confiscate even a percentage of them would have destroyed the state's ability to produce....
