Hi Ron,

I have been trying to access the Outisight webpage today but I keep getting an "ACCESS DENIED"" message. Has the site been closed?

We have recently started a Womp racing program at my local raceway and I was keen to show the owner the range of 1/32 scale vintage bodies in the hope he may stock them.

Regards,

Alan

I suspect you're using old links.

Here's the Fast Ones link from Ron's Slotblog signature:

And this is the Outisight link:

No offense but time waits for no man - since 2005 is a long time for a business to not post new product.

Alan, don't get your expectations up to high before you get there, the site is uninformative but the logo still looks good.  ;)

Ron, it is a dis-service to you and us. Update what is available and - with mask or without mask would be a start.

If you are using Mozilla or Explorer all you will get on Eagle's web site is the header. I found if you use Google Chrome you will be able to access the entire site.

I was looking to identify some O/S bodies from the part # and can't find a site that lists all the bodies.

 

Is a O/S 436 IRRA legal? What car is it?

Not everyone is on Farcebook, or flutter or all the other "social media" distractions.

 

Perhaps if he was to have an easy to find webpage it would cut down on the confusion.

You could email him then or ask your local track to do the leg work. His Facebook page is just like a webpage. Would you like me to upload the catalog here? Maybe Mr. Wells could be of some service on this one?

His Facebook page is just like a webpage.


When I Googled O/S that was the only O/S site I could find. Maybe because I don't do Facebook I just could not navigate the page and find what I needed.

Where does the money come from, Joe?
 
The best I can tell, the IRRA® does not collect any money for all the time, effort, and grief you five on the BoD put into this hobby of ours. Certainly we can't expect you to front monies for us, too!

Kevin,

 

The IRRA® is completely self-funded by the members of the BoD. The org does not sell memberships or collect dues, it receives no percentage of entry fees at the Premier Races nor from any group that uses the ruleset. The trademark registration (which was not cheap) and the attorney's fees for helping to file it came out of our pockets, though one raceway owner made a nice contribution. The annual copyright renewal on the rules is paid for by one BoD member.
