Ummm... Isn't October first the first day of the forth quarter? So aren't you now 8 days late?

Drawings will be at the end of the quarter from now on. The first one will be at the end of the FOURTH quarter.

Suck it.

Also, that red turbro looks clapped out.

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

Gone hunting with Alec Baldwin and Dick Cheney. Back soon.

In keeping with the 996 likeness, it's battery is dead.

Glad you enjoyed the prize package.

Yeah, the batteries in both the remote and the car are dead, and it has one of those little screw thingies to remove the battery covers and I couldn't find anything on Heidi & Franny's Youtube channel on how to fix it, so . . .

Yeah that's way beyond my skill level. Called my indy to get an estimate, he said 3 hours at $200/hr for labor and $600 for the batteries. Does that sound right? Seems high to me.
