Thank you, Edwin.
Glad to hear you have it under control. My car makes a weird high pitch noise at very low speeds. Im hoping that Choung can help me out at Classic soon. Peace of mind is hard to put a price on.

Worry not my friend, I'll make sure it's taken care of.

PS: Anyone here good at making signatures? Time for me to get a new one.

I figured it would be a good alternative for motorsport enthusiasts who want to upgrade from posters.

Let me know what you guys think!
Really cool idea! I love the concept of incorporating your favorite track into a work of art, something to hang on your wall. Couple question though.

1. Do these carvings show track elevation? It would be a cool treat to the eye to watch the angles change shape as you walk by, kind of like in architecture.

2. Colors?? I know you mentioned you could customize them but which do you offer and when can you get them? I'm into the idea of yellow, red & blue. Calder-esque, if you will.

Mike at BMS in Houston? If so, be sure to do a flyby down Kirby so I can hear that exhaust...

Hey Spicoli,

1. Right now I do not have the tracks offered with elevations. That would raise the price considerably for one and also it would be very hard to gather all that data for each track. However I can have that done as a special order if I can get my hands on the elevations for the track. I mainly was just trying to keep the price down on the basic models the best I could.

2. As far as other colors go, that is on a per order basis. The black is the standard and any other colors can be requested. The color you see will be formica so any color formica comes in can be done. It sounds like you are trying to possibly do multiple colors on the same track. Are these supposed to be side by side like the M3 badge all the way around the track? That would be extremely difficult but I can look into it.

I know there are a million little different things that could be done with these but I finally had to stop pulling my hair out over it and just offer the product a certain way to get it out there. I think the feedback from you guys and others will help me gauge what most people are looking for.

Yep. Ive already had an order come in for it. I know its a popular track but the only reason its not on the site yet is because it is not in any of those categories. I know, lame answer, but its all I got!

If you are interested in getting the Nordschleife I can always let you know once it is available. Should be within the next few days hopefully!

added the goodies (minus the eotech) today. lasermax rail mount red laser, rail mount light, and the bipod. laser is more or less just another gadget, as it's a good inch off center.

guns aren't dangerous...their operators are! that being said, i'm licensed to carry a gun and i can fit rounds in a very tight grouping from any stance, at many distances. plus, they're fun toys when you're bored at the range!

I love guns. One of my best friend's Dad collects them and has a ton of them. He's really cool, he lets us take anything we want and shoot at the gun range he built on his land in BFE..one of the perks of living in a small ass town
