That looks like my forecast except,we get the wind to go with it.
Between the rain and lack of a radar gun,I'm not going to make it in time.

So....... i guess we will have to do this again at a later date? I'm sure this can be done in all fairness to everyone that has entered the shootout. How about a prize ( a t-shirt or something )to the ones that did have their videos done? Just a thought to be fair to the rules. Or extend the deadline to the end of the month or so and maybe the weather will clear.

instead of closing it, keep it open and move the dealine till spring sometime. this way more people have a chance to get involved, and we actualy get our runs in.

I'd have to agree with this.
I'm all for doing it later when we all might have a chance to get our runs in but,in all fairness,I think the ones that did get the vids in on time should be awarded something.
I can kick in a set of Axial 1.9 rings if that would help.

I'd like to see the deadline postponed a bit. With the weather and the impending holiday, things have been less than ideal to shoot vid.

Not that I'm hoping my 43 mph is gonna set the bar for anyone...

Agreed. I only saw the contest last Sunday. I busted ass this week to get it built and ran before the deadline. I guess I don't get why everyone waited til the last minute to do there videos. Alls good though, had fun.

It's been a combination of things for most of us. Weather, no radar gun, GPS won't fit on the car, build time, and $$$! I have 3 cars for this. Getting them done along with my other builds has been tight as far as $ goes. But the weather is the main thing right now.

I worked with derwood21 and he got the GPS to fit in the car and he busted ass on getting his done in time granted we do live in cali and it doesn't rain as much but the people that got there stuff in on time should get something because they adhered to the rules. Then you can start the comp over again in the spring or summer. If it was me I would have run my car in the rain and most surely there would have been carnage. Here's my $.02

thing is some people have been into this since it was started, other have thrown something together in a few days and gotten a vid in. im at a disadvantage here, my car has been done for 2 weeks now but i cant get a vid in as all it does is rain. i honestly dont think people should be rewarded just because they live were it doesnt rain. honestly having this sort of contest at this time of year wasnt the greatest idea, i understand it was done because its sort of the crawling off season.

as i said before, i think the contest should remain open till spring, id bet we will have a bunch more entries.
