    Yes, the easiest way is to go to my GZG scenario discussion group at
<> and enter the "vault."  You
can find
all the rules and the pod racing control sheets in a file cleverly
marked "Pod
Racing." <g>  To access the "vault," you'll need to take about 30
seconds to
subscribe to the group, but you can unsubscribe right away, or even
better, just
elect not to recieve e-mails from the group.  That way, you can still
access the
"vault" any time you like and you can even read the average 3 posts per
month via
the web.
    Based on our conversation in House of Pizza, I'm going to keep the
intact.  You'll have to come up with a "death penalty" suitable for
track you design.  My current default is: One gate behind the last place
pod with
a number of hull boxes equal to the number of gates that you were set
back.  No
new junk, and no free repairs.	But, I can't imagine this would be
suitable for
all tracks, so adjust to whatever tortures you're throwing at them. <g>

    The same thing happened to me.  Now, I've been buying pod racing
stuff since
I saw the film during the summer and realized that I could adapt FT
rules to
simulate the race.  So I paid full price for all of the pod racing packs
at full
price, just to have all of them.  Then, January, I found them all for $2
per pack
in the back of Blockbuster!  Well, I had to buy a second round of the
same packs.

    Let me know how if goes, please.
