how about a spec Leaf rally series. .... after your battery dies the closest one to the finish line wins!

I actually really want a leaf. I just need a bit more range, and a cheaper price. I think the current range is 80-100 miles when it gets to 125 i think that would work for me... then i just need to wait till its affordable... so guess never.. lol

There's maybe 10 of those godawefully ugly things @ work all lined up at the parking spaces that have 120v at them. There's a guy on my team that has one. All sorts of range anxiety from that car.

Would it Kill Nissan/Yota to make one of these things or hybrids for that matter that didn't totally look like ass? There's a lexus hybrid hatch @ work that looks 1/2 decent, but they still did the hybrid treatment to it like the did the IS series hybrid. Both could have been decent looking cars.. then they had a greenie liberal attack I guess.

There was a rumor floating around that after PFR my ego had shrunk. Let me assure you, that rumor is false.

How about the Canadian spec fuel rules that almost happened? That was great fun. It only cost me a couple grand. I expect that to return with a vengence next year when CARS also tries to force all turbo cars to run 32mm restrictors for the 2014 season...

This crap is getting old. I blame two (well, three) people in particular.

Well Adam, take a hint from this site that requires names. Name who you think is the problem and say why...
We won't tell anybody.

I was subcontracting at the VA for a few years as an analyst.
I was paid via a research grant working with some docs from Florida on a breast cancer research project.
I shared an office with the lead Biostats person on the VA Data Use Group.
The research group was trying to get the data. The head of the Data Use Group kept telling us that the DUG was being unreasonable and requiring all these new requirements and hoops for us to jump through. She was super nice though and was always super apologetic for the politics and delays involved.
Due to my sharing of the office, I got to listen to the DUG conference calls. Guess who was the biggest antagonist and pain in the ass. Yup, the apologist cunt face.
She was also using another surgical database for her own research and publications and COMPLETELY ignoring and bypassing the whole data use group on the other side. I figured she was basically trying to get them to focus solely on our group so she wouldn't get noticed. Fucking whore.

So, how did she get on the Rally Class Rules Committee?

Gotta take the system down from the inside [hippy voice]maaaaaaannnn[/hippy voice].

It has nothing to do with Keith though, I'll tell you that much. Or Eric, as he is more grassroots than I am when it comes to racing.

"Now, Pinky, if by any chance you are captured during this mission, remember you are Gunther Heindriksen from Appenzell. You moved to Grindelwald to drive the cog train to Murren. Can you repeat that?"

How about the rumor that Patrick Richard/Rocket Rally aren't SRTC next year?

How about this one? JVL isn't the only one I've heard say it...although the other source was not an organizer either.

JVL on SS
Well this is all well and good---unless something really drastic happens like a rumored tripling of the RA so called "Insurance and sanction" fee---and notes not included, reaching maybe $760 per car direct to RA...and the poor organisers still have to lay something on top of that.

I heard Ben Klock is now a Muslim and has formed a Rally Jihad against Redbull. The beard is a dead give away.....
