It was an intermediate car and if it was a former Irvan cat, that means that this chassis would have had to have been at least 10 years old by the time Skinner raced it. This strikes me as very odd because very seldom does a chassis last that long racewise. This means there is a TON of history in that car! I know that at that time the team was struggling as Kodak money was getting sparse. I think that may be a reason it lasted so long. I am looking at Media guides now for results. Skinner finished 30th at Atlanta Spring race and 20th at Lowes in 2003. If it was an intermediate and raced with a Pontiac body, it would have had to be one of those races. Funny thing is, Mike qualified 3rd at Lowes, amazing for the fail he is

I heard of a James Hylton car that was first a 1983 Bobby Allison car,t that ended being used till 1998 or something.

Said my final farewell to the old SNW forums last night. It's sad but at least it went peacefully. We gave it shot at least but nothing compared to the old SNW. It was Alta's old SNW offline vids that actually introduced me to the world of NR03. It was a blast and I met a lot of really good people over there (Duff, Alta, Battalionfan, Connie, Shackleford, etc.) At least the majority of us made it over to here which was good.

This may be a dumb question, but What is the SNW forum?

F1V1 anf Alta can explain it to you better than I can because they were pretty much there from the start. Basically it was a motorsports forum like EFR, but the comraderie was second to none. However the original forum was taken over by a rouge user and although we eventually recovered, the new forum never was as big as the original. Quite a few SNW regulars have come over now and race at ISRA. Like I said, it holds a lot of fond memories for me because it was where I was introduced to NR03 and met a lot of the guys from here and ISRA I know well today. Unfortunately, everyone splintered off and did their own thing so the forum is now all but dead Connie, F1V1, MystrSyko and Alta are all SNW guys including me, of course.

Goddamn, I miss that place. Going on three and a half years since I joined SNW. Time flys. Crying or Very sad

Just heard news that made my weekend! I've been accepted accepted to the school of my choice, Old Dominion University, in Motorsports Engineering Technology! I am so proud because I will be the first of my family to go to college and even better, have the credentials when I get out to begin to pursue my dream of being a F1 engineer! In 4 years time, I will be making hax Iraisins setups! This is the same school Bootie Barker graduated from with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. And free internet too!

I am so happy right now.

I tell you why this happened though. The senators and politicians want to keep their seats. They know if they back this and it passes they're gone come November. That's why some many of the senators who had original backed it jumped ship. The public, although it doesn't seem like it, still has an influence in Washington.

Congratulations, man! Being the 1st one in your family to go to any college is huge. Good luck with that! As for me, I made it onto the UNOH (University of Northwestern Ohio) Motorsports team a couple of months ago and I'm certainly enjoying it. the kind of hands on work we get is incredible.

Well, i've kinda lost hope for my remaining years of high school. About a couple weeks ago, i got into a disagreement with someone i used to be friends with, and it got to the point of him threatning me with violence. Since then he refuses to speak to me unless he needs something. Me and my other friends (who don't like him very much and just use him) are trying to convince him to let this problem fade away but he's not going to budge. Little does he know however that this problem will affect him more than it does me.

any thoughts on what i should do?

Why is it that anything that is made in Britian needs to be copied here in America, and America screws it up every time. Eben when the American version is made before the British version, Look at Britains Got Talent, its 50 times better than the US Version, oh well.

Trolling at its finest:



An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan". All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little..
The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. It could not be any simpler than that.
Remember, there IS a test coming up. The 2012 elections.

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

This was found on facebook. It's quite an eye opener for anyone that reads this.

I got that through an email once, I cracked up laughing at the irony. Socialism is for the people and not the Socialist, if anyone knows who says that, you get a cookie.

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan". All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little..
The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. It could not be any simpler than that.
Remember, there IS a test coming up. The 2012 elections.

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going
to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because
somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Is it just me, or is everyone in your school incredibly violent.

This is the same one who, not two months ago, sliced my hand open, and almost every day draws on my body.

First off have you ever reported this to a teacher? Seems like you haven't attempted the first step. Second of all why are you staying around this one kid if he is trying to hurt you? I really don't understand that. Third off you didn't troll someone if he tried to shatter your knee caps.

This seems to happen like 1 a week and in the most ridiculous of fashions (and injuries). I'm honestly not sure if your making the whole thing up or this is true. If true have you ever told a teacher or something?

My school's senior class song = Redneck Country Song.

Also, my school isn't the greatest. They can say they stop bullying (/rj) but they really don't. My whole junior class is just a bunch of immature teens, me included. (Ex. Ask any of my friends what a Honk Honk is.)
