And that is exactly why they will be disqualified.

We're looking for cheap entry fees and shitty performance so nobody feels bad that they can't immediately have what other people have.

How about we tie strings to Hot Wheels and pull them through the dirt. You can drive in pairs...one pulls the string, the other makes engine noises...

I'm thinking more like the 20 pack of really cheap ones you get at the dollar store for a buck. You know, the ones where half of them are already pre-crushed?

Sounds fair, I'll pull them if you'll make the engine noises. Sound Good?

Thank you for the positve comment. It really has become a excellent performer. Everything happens for a reason. So the positive side of me is very happy that I made changes. I still feel the "OG Frogger" is a Great platform and really should have been allowed in "Sportsman (Beginner) Class due to the width of the chassis itself. Litoria has moved over to another owner who is taking excellent care of building her to HIGH level of greatness she deserves. You should take a look at her rebirth.
