    Has an agreement been made where mfg races count for upgrade points?

  2. Scatman says:

    Good question Jim. I would refer you to contact Lisa Miller on that one. The only impression I got from reading the upgrading policy was that their not making anyone upgrade. It’s up to you to move up when you feel ready. Just like at one of those feel good schools for kids. Little Jimmy does work when “he” wants too. But I could be wrong.
