Kevin Dietz, one of the west coast guys I used to race in ES with got on the show. Looks like it may be OK, gotta be better than Bullrun.

On that note, Bullrun sucks.

Bullrun puts the dic in ridiculous. They don't actually show us anything. Navigation, how fast are they driving, nada.

Hopefully Set-up will show us good stuff..I just don't have any faith in Speed to put on a decent show for enthusiasts. Forza was a step in the right direction except for the winning team not actually winning and not getting to see any of the wrenching or mods.

Forza was a step in the right direction except half of the drivers didnt know how to drive.

This show looks promising though

Saw her in a bikini once when. The Force clan always stayed at the same hotel as us for the U.S. Nationals in Indy. She was out by the pool.














Too bad this was around 1988 and she was only about 6 years old.

At first, when I noticed that she cried after every pass, I made fun of her. Then, I realized that if I made a pass in a TF car, I'd probably be in tears too.

Kind of sounds like Star Racer that was run up in Canada. This show looks a little more interesting ...

A person born in 1986 is now legally old enough to buy liquor in the US.

I'm gonna need a minute to digest that...

For that matter, do you realize that there are Miata owners driving around at this very moment who are younger than their car?

God, I feel old.

Sure, long as we finish what we bought.

You should see the Miata group on facebook. The ages range from like 15 to 25 on there.

Getting back on topic...the show looks pretty good. Of course so did Forza and then it turned out to be worthless.

And how come I always miss the sign up for these shows?

Wow, that show looks like it'll be pretty good. Can't wait.

as far as the age thing. That age of our cars never even much occurred to me until my cousin and her family came over one day to visit, and she started asking me all kinds of questions about my "cute car". She's a junior in high school. I told her it was a '91, and she said

"Oh...like me!"
