    Default Advice from Mark Richards!

    Spot on!

    "Racers will call me and say, 'I cant figure out what my problem is'.I tell them go look in the mirror and ask yourself these two questions: Do I go racing to be the best I can be and make my team the best it can be, or do I go racing to hang out and have buddies and have a good time? Do that and you'll figure out your problem."

    if said racer just dropped 30 grand with with him , he would probably like to hear something besides " go look in the mirror " , makes for a good interview though .....

    I'm uncertain as to why anyone would throw down the $$ to get this kind of support, in all seriousness can you purchase the same car from Rocket that Brandon is running?? Seems to me if they are saving the best and doing special stuff to the house car then why would anyone want to buy a lesser product.

    That special stuff they are doing to the house car can be done by anyone. Just have to be innovative and look outside the box. Team Rocket is doing just that to make there team better.
    As far as a lesser product, if you could actually categorize a new Rocket XR1 as a lesser product, that lesser product is out there spanking most of the competition. If this doesn't make sense then go buy a Rayburn or Mastersbilt. You'll be fine.

    There would be a lot less racers around if all drivers did what Richards just said. People do it for fun not to pay the bills. Spend $36,000 and get told to look in the mirror for help. JMO

    If someone is doing it strictly for fun, they better be rich. Just sayin. There are cheaper classes out there for having fun for a lot less $$.

    Imcryn2, So I totally understand what Mark is saying but cant a guy do it for both reason. Go to a track and win some races and hang out with buddies also. I don't know to many people that show up to a local track and just show up to race and not pit next to your buddies and not talk to anyone.

    I agree with Bayko. Someone has been playing in there sandbox way to long if they think richards made those comments. Those guys work hard to make team rocket what it is. Do they have things that others don't ? It's very possible, isn't that how you stay on top ? They have 5 or 6 cars to choose from and I'm sure they are not all alike.

    Very few SLM racers are doing it for a profession.

    I agree with you and this is JMO as well , with Richards in the business and suppose to be one of the best business minds in the late model game , that comment just didnt make since to me , i build a lot of engines and if one of my customers called me up with a problem and asked for my help and i told them to go look in the mirror , i seriously doubt i would get any more of there business , out of context or not ......
