And the ram air? If you go 6" with 1" around the edges your all up on the windscreen. Although that one was reduced from it's original size. Are you serrious tho? Is that gay?

I am a ver impressionable young man so be gentle.

Well, being I am your tech inspector, I guess you're asking me.

From the pictures it looks fine. If I were you I might trim off the serif on the 1 since it could be mistaken for a 7, but that's a judgement call. Spacing looks fine.

Keep in mind that you have the numbers on the correct side of the nose for TWS (Texas World Speedway) because we score from the left side, but if you were to go to a track where we score from the opposite side, you'd have to put numbers on that side of the nose. The easiest way is to put numbers on both sides and call it done.

Should I just go put it in the middle Linz?

And more important than that, is it gay?

It's up to you, but it's okay like it is. If you do put it in the middle you can use some of the bottom part of the windscreen, just yellow some of the background; lots of folks do. You also won't be reminded (sometimes painfully) to put numbers on the opposite side of the nose if you forget to.

Not gay at all. Or even ghey, if you like that spelling. (But I don't. I think spelling "gay" as "ghey" is gay!)

Thanks buddy! I forgot you were the tech guy. I'll just get another one made and put it on the other side. And I'll fix the serrif or whatever on the 1.



Go away Bob.

I like the placement...the extra weight on the left will help you turn into 1 faster

Hey, and you have some nerve talking about my jack boots, especially considering I bought them from you and you got them from G.G. Allin.

Doesn't matter. Matters most that they be the proper color combo and be legible.

Actually, it only matter that the scorers are happy w/ them.

If they are pink and blue you may even get away w/ them. Just have to see if they like them. hehehe
