Is the deadline not midnight PST?

well, I was really hoping id find time to make a slick, presentable entry, but it just didn't happen :/ so you guys will just have evaluate it for the merit of the design. I'm sure you can figure out what inspired my entry. I give you the Tipo 818

Also, I don't think my email went through until just after midnight, yikes! Hopefully it will still be considered?

In reply to mcw_gm: You seem confused. PM sent.

Confirmation letters have gone out, but I know I missed 5 email addresses when making the email list. The silly mail program wouldn't let me just reply to all entrants directly at once, so I had to build an email list from scratch. It took waaay longer than I had planned.

For now, I'm done staring at a screen for the past 19 hours.

Well i didn't get to the message boards quickly enough and see there are alot of very good entries, and, as i have experienced with these sort of contests, the winner will most likely be a 3-D rendered one. i understand the logic as it would take less development to create and process. However there were afew hand drawn sketches that had some serious style, and mine was no slouch either

Tom,

I'm curious if all the designs will be posted for the public to view at some point. I think it would be really nice to be able to see everything that was submitted.

of everything I've seen, I like the submissions from cayeya, RodneyO, and Xabier's submission from a few months ago, all of those seem like they would look good rolling around town or chasing down Porsches and Ferraris on trackdays.

wonder if NASA or the SCCA would get behind another FFR spec class, maybe to run alongside the FFR spec Cobra class? a field of race cars that realistically could be put on track for less than $20K and raced for the whole season for not much more than that, could definitely be interesting and probably a hell of a lot of fun

In reply to Slyp_Dawg: Agreed. There is definitely a need for a new spec class. E30 is growing while other classes stagnate and die. Many racers consider the roadster, even in spec form to be a twitchy hazard so this car could be a real standard bearer and competitive force for racers and enthusiasts alike.

I awoke this morning to find out our mail server decided that my message to 360 of you looked like spam, so they blocked it. Thusly, nobody got the notifications I had sent and I should been sleeping at 4am instead.

I've just re-sent the confirmation using our mass mailing software, so you should be receiving confirmations shortly. (As in check your inbox now.)

In other news, I feel much better after a little sleep.
