    Do we need to get Maxxis stickers to put on our cars? I'm happy to do it since we got the deal on the tires. I'll peel off my current tire stickers to make room.

    it's not the cost, just makes it harder to see the right side/back half of the car. I like my field of vision now and really do not want to make it any smaller..

    Just buy the $30 job, install it low, and call it a day. Or race with NASA

    The net is cheaper than a NASA membership not to mention the even more expensive race license.

    Picked up everyone's tires at Maxxis today. John was surprised I could fit 42 tires in the short bed.

    So it's ok to have a non-halo seat and the net will do nothing for your head, but you will not break your arm. Meanwhile your head has been decapitated from the body. Now I feel better, where is the logic here....What's next a HANS for my torso

    In your case, decapitation would be an improvement . . .

    I have to imagine that a side net is better than no net when it comes to head safety, no?

    I'm fairly certain Sean (LincolnLogs) will be there this weekend as well.

    And I'll be swinging by on Saturday to spectate and pick up some used parts...

    I will be there Saturday for the Miata Challenge, no cage so I can't play with the SPM guys.
