    Thank you for talking to Michael.

    That blog was last updated 2011 the last time I looked. That's one of the things I brought up to him at WoW when I ran into him.

    I still think they should consider running the outlaws during the day. Maybe make a special announcement for a few 15min spots during the day to get them up there for passes. Those cars are going to need cool downs, packed with ice and charged between passes so an hour is mostly going to be wasted on cooling the car down and prep. I know I wouldn't be hot lapping an all out drag car.

    I don't understand why they don't just partner with a couple of sites or something .. making people go out of their way to comment or bitch won't help .. i for one am busy, and not really interested enough to go figure things out.

    The whole idea behind the price increase kind of annoys me. maybe if they were offering more value or something a free dollar item with signup or whatever would be nice... I have opted out of the last few because of other busy obligations.

    That and they can do a direct link to it so folks don't have to come through the front page of WV streets. hit their website, go through their forum, they can moderate their forum as they see fit. It is a service that's offered through our vendors.

    Roger is one of the better graphics people i've met also, so you can bed it can be pretty snazzy looking.

    I think the issue with the FLD guys not updating their site much is because they are not computer people. I don't think they want to spend time on a form answering questions. That's just my opinion.

    I agree with this 100% a web presence in this day and age is mandatory if you are going to survive.

    I agree. This going to the drivers meetings to hear about changes is just crazy if you ask me.
