    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Thanks again to all of the votes and support!

    The votes count for 33% of the total 'value' Champion places on the entry. The rankings were based on video views, so it's hard to guess how the views correlated to votes.

    Champion will announce the 15 finalist on Feb.18. Thanks to all of YOU, I feel our chances are good.

    Regardless of the outcome, we owe a HUGE part of our success and fun to all of you, for the support and encouragement you have provided us.

    Thanks again!

    Buddy Walker and the FlatCad Racing Team

    Good to hear Flatcad is still alive. My teeshirt is about ready to fall apart and will need to order another when they're up and running. Looking forward to more progress on this beyond cool project!

    I was the first driver and Buddy gave me 4 T shirts. I still have one left. Thanks again.

    Actually, run 1 was a disaster. The chute didn't open and the brakes failed. Nobody's fault, just too many details at the last minute. The car coasted quite well
    We really did have a great crew. They squeezed 152 out of the car that first year.
