Glad I didn't buy a bunch of those Black Friday Sale Git Cards this year.

I was down to 3 races in my bank, so not too bad. I know that Cathers and Jed got gift cards for Christmas. Probably a lot of others, too....

A lot of the general public posts on the WATE page are pretty negative towards it, though I think that is pretty standard for any public post.

Tell Cathers and Jed to dispute the charges for the gift cards with their Credit Card Companies. They will not receive a refund from the company...but they should be able to get the charges removed from their card statements.

Wow, Have we gotten down to lack of interest or the bashers doing the web? Any sort of racing is going to hurt at one point or worse. But on the same note I never saw more than ten to twelve cars in the lot.

If you ever ran a shifter kart, it was like watching paint dry. Actually I think I've ran some Honda yard karts more thrilling. Granted, there was the mental game of "what turn am I going to punt poky the wonder slug into left field so I can pass them?" that was kinda fun.

It was fun. Sure, shifter carts or a Nissan GTR or a F1 car was faster, but you could go hammer out a race or 2 in a couple minutes on a rainy weeknight.

I drive a car that's faster than most local level shifter Carts.......and I still thought it was a blast.

My local level shifter has beat you about every time out :P(as far as shifters go, I really do suck!) and Veloce was about as boring as reading Readers Digest while taking a dump. :(
I wanted it to be better, really I did, but my experience there said to me it sucked.
