    Thats what all that crap in the RWD forum is about, Me and Night Wolf are racing at the Tampa meet on the 21st. My HT4100 vs. his 307. Chad i dont think will be there, though should be.

    Videos will be taken from all angles and from inside both cars.

    I've still gotta present this to my folks, I have punched the numbers and it's cheaper for me to drive (and pick up Jesda on my way down) than it would be to fly down. I think I can do the driving, eating and meeting for less than $400 and only miss one day of work. I'd leave on a Thursday night right after work (6 PM) and get to Jesda's place outside of St. Louis at about 2:30 AM and then leave from there Friday morning around 11 and get to Tampa around 11-12 that night.

    My mom told me earlier today that I need to start saving more money, and this isn't gonna help at all. lol

    I don't want to rain on your parade guys and I don't know how serious you are about the racing. This is just a beauty show, there is going to be no racing and I don't think it will be sanction by the boards. Please confirm this with me Sal. This is being held in a very upscale and prestigious community. I do want to see your beautiful cars though and meet all of you.

    This is from the old man in the group.

    Just a few short weeks until this big event.

    Sal, when are you going to send official invitation to everybody?

    Doesnt matter if the boards support it or not. It has nothing to do with them. We are doing this on our own time. We arnt going to do it on the street in this "prestigious" community. We have not decided on a place, but dont worry, you arnt being forced to be involved.

    Those who wish to witness this may follow us to the place we decide on. This is between me and Rick. You dont have to be a part of it if you dont want to be.

    The race, which IS going to happen, will happen after we all meet eachother, talk, eat, hangout etc. After that,those who wish to see our incredibly slow and pathetic race can. Dont worry, you can pretend like you never heard about it.

    We are taking the risk of getting in trouble, which is doubtful as our cars are so slow and old, no one will probbaly pay it any mind.


    I take full responsiblity if i happen to get in trouble for this. And the boards, nor any member would be mentioned.

    To cooncat:

    Tampa Palms may think they are upscale and prestigious, but the reality check is that the whole area isn't as upscale as they like to think. And I live in that area, and been around it for 11 years!

    Besides, an HT4100 and a 307, running flat out, will still accelerate slower than a Honda Odyssey minivan. That being said, Bruce B Downs is known for a heavy Tampa PD presence in that area, what with lots of people who can pay the ticket, are too busy to fight it, and aren't likely to shoot back! So the cops hang out there to make their quotas.

    To Jonas and Wolf:

    Scouting a location near the meeting place won't be easy, I can't think of any good location for a race that is 2 lanes, straight, AND doesn't have heavy traffic or lots of cops.

    EJ, you absolutely correct on all counts about BBD. I just wanted to send out the warning, but said it so much better.

    Like I said, this is a beauty show to show off our beasts.

    Don't tell that to people who live in Tampa Palms.
