Yep after purchasing a $1800.00 1/4 scale car a decent 2 way would not be a cost concern. I agree with Tim, I can hear Marlin hollering now "Don't You guys know what a Caution Means"! I could see it if we were racing on a 1/2 mile track or just maybe on green flag pit stops but since we use yellow flag pitstops that ends that.IMO, one reason is probably there to prevent the ole " I didn't hear the horn/buzzer/whistle" for caution because my spotter was in my ear.
Mike.... No doubt! Its blue for me and I really think the map explains why I drop 50% of all calls in or out! What would be even better is trying to dial and drive!!...LOL I'd have to still my daughters Barbie for my driver....the realistic effect!Hey Tanner,
It depends on if you have the RED or the BLUE coverage. Wouldn't you hate to drop a call 3 laps from a fuel stop?
What the H*** do you mean? Oh, I guess I can say Heck. Come on, who is going to be the one to interpret what a "short cut" is? Can I be banned if I say "OH Fudge!" because it might be interpreted as a "short cut"?I'm going to remind everyone about TOS Violations for Language - you can't "go around" the TOS by using "shortcut" words in place of curse words and other adult language. If you have no clue if a word is acceptable or not, a good rule of thumb would be NOT use it. Also re-read the Help/TOS section above in the orange bar if you want more information.
This is willyplankhead's third violation of which I"m aware, so its earned him a 3 Day Time Out. I don't like doing this sort of stuff, but if folks can't be bothered to follow the rules that Hank has asked us all to follow, then you can take some time to reflect on what you've done. Next violation will be at least 7 days. After that, it'll likely be a Perma-BAN.
I hear ya Tim.
What if the earpiece was only for one ear? That would allow the driver to still be able to hear the PA.
Look, I understand this is really a moot point, seeing as there are no green flag stops anymore. Although I would like to see the return of that. It really puts some strategy into the race. That is a topic for another thread.
