Hey everyone!  I've been busy with some life stuff over the past week or so and I just saw all of this.  I really appreciate the 2nd chance repairs that IDR did on the Jag and everyone for being cool with it!  Also, you all build some rock solid cars.  Good luck at the triangle!

  • Dude, it was only fair. Out of all the cars that got beat up, you got the absolute short end of the stick. Having you sit out because of a crippled car wouldn’t have been right, especially with the hard work you put into it. Now you have a fighting chance again. — SpyDude

Roadrunner's car has a similar axle issue.....pending his response I'll be affecting a repair on his car as well

So I know I'm probably beating a dead horse with this, but Thank You to everyone that made this a fun series. I know it had a pretty rough spot in there but overall the racing was fun to watch with some great drama to boot. I hope everyone enjoyed following along and watching this as much as I did. 

Congrats to all the champions and to everyone that had cars entered. Great builds across the board that saw some tough track and some stiff competition.

Cars will be making their trips back home over the next few weeks. 

  • Thank you and all the hosts, was a fun series for sure. — Mattman213
  • Thanks for the idea and putting it all together!! Bittersweet result for me, but I think we should do it again for sure at some point. — GhostRacing
  • Thank you - this was a hard run as an amateur racer, but I’ve learned a whole lot about what it takes to build a fast car and had a lot of fun doing it. I will be looking forward to the next Pro-Am, and hope to be racing with a bunch of my friends here in the diecast world again. — SpyDude
  • Mattman213: DUDE, WE DID IT!!!! — SpyDude
  • Heck yeah! I tanked both road courses but pulled it out on the straights and you built up some steam and piled on the points as the event went on. Love it. — Mattman213

Pro-Am cars are starting to head back home, so heads up to everyone that sent in cars. I consolidated as much as I could with all the cars I had. So if you had entries in City Connection and/or the Porsche race, all your cars should come back together.

If anyone needs a tracking# shoot me a PM and I'll get it for you. My goal is to have all the cars shipped by October before the USPS increases shipping rates.
