In Topic: Tony Stewart Case Goes to Grand Jury

If he was going 60, that could present another problem for him.  I understood they were under full-track yellow flag caution and that track had a 25 mph limit for travel under cautions. 

If that is true, I stand corrected. I don't follow Sprint Cars much (there isn't much TV coverage & Ascot closed over 20 years ago) & was just guessing at the speed, from other forms of the sport. Thanks for pointing that out, Danno. From what I do know about Sprints is, they go better than they stop. They have no clutch or conventional transmission. Just an in & out box. If you lock up the rear wheels, the engine stops.

At every photographers meeting, at every track, I shot, there was one hard, fast rule, Do not, under any circumstances, set foot, on a hot track. It isn't a good idea to go out, on a cold track, as there are still safety cars & equipment, on the track. As for Stewart's incident, it was much darker, than it looked, Sprint cars are hard to see out of, in the best of conditions, & he was going about 60 MPH. It's like going down a poorly lit road, at 60, & someone walks out, in front of you.

Nice hot rod, you got there, Jason. I've always like Vega wagons & panels. I like the early front end but the later one, is more aerodynamic You are going to have a blast with it. I'm very envious.

It doesn't matter how fine of a resolution printer you have sitting on your desk, if you can't build the 3D model that is needed to make a print there is no reason to have the printer. Designing and building the 3D model is the real show stopper here, everyone seems to forget that.

I've been saying the same thing, since the 3D printers for modelers topics started. CAD programs are not easy to master & I doubt they will get much easier. Files will be available but at what price? What if you want something obscure?
