OUCH! The downside of being part of a VERY popular spec series. Looks just like NASCAR at a restrictor plate track...just 3/4 scale...too many cars, too little track.

The price of popularity.

If I recall correctly, the last race at Summit point had 50+ cars on track.

^^

It is a commitment. The first thing you have to do is disassociate yourself with any emotion relating to the car.

It is a tool. If it breaks, you have to be able to throw it away.
