    Spoke with the GM today and everything is fine. We are still very much welcome. She said the problem stemmed from some shoppers complaining about "revving" of engines. When she asked what kind of cars attend and I told her, she said "wow, you have to rev your engines" :) Anyway, let's just try to be cool and it shouldn't be a problem at all. See yawl there 5/28 (if not soon on May 15th at the Symbolic meet):

    This may be a stupid question but, Should I stop filming by the road? I understand its one of the reasons why theres some hooligan driving :p

    Either way I can still make descent videos even without fast motion, so if its bad for people to be taking off hard then I will refrain from filming up top near the road.


    Thanks for taking the initiative in contacting them.

    let's talk about it next meet, but we probably shouldn't egg that stuff on. that guy in the 10 cyl porsche is kind of a nut and we should probably discourage him from doing that stuff :)

    Ok, the last thing I want to do is be partially responsible for the end of a good thing like the Carlsbad show/meet.

    Ben, thanks for taking this upon yourself and getting it figured out. We had a great location with great turnout. Hopefully nobody will show up to "ruin it" next time. BTW your Carerra GT is absolutely stunning.

    Hi guys, was it a good turnout, despite the bit of bad publicity? Did anyone post photos? Just back from Mex.
