Topic: who is 888 wont tang clan?

some not so nice person(s) put their shitty sticker on my race car and my RV.
without asking permission.
And I think I was not the only one they put they crappy blue fish or w/e on.
very angry and displeased.
was able to remove it from my race car no problem, through one on the RV proven to be difficult.

Re: who is 888 wont tang clan?

I am the owner of 888 Blue Tang Clan.  We had over 200+ stickers made for our car and I gave them to many drunk costumed fools at Louden.  One of them was me. 

Apparently some are upset that their car was "vandalized" by said stickers. 

It's a joke.  You were tagged by us.   

So sorry for sticker.  Wasn't meant to make you angry.

I'll remove the sticker myself at NJMP if it bothers you so very much. 

Or feel free to sticker my car in retaliation.

Re: who is 888 wont tang clan?

I can understand being upset at an RV, or daily getting stickered, but being upset because a race car got a sticker? Relax a little. I've seen tons of stickers make the rounds over the past few years. It's always in good fun.

Re: who is 888 wont tang clan?

Please do not sticker my car too.  I know it does not look like much to you, but it is all I have....
They are a pain to remove, especially the glue, over the dents, holes, and rust..  Maybe fun to stick on, but not fun to remove.  I am certain teams have better things to do than sit around removing peoples stickers.
And many teams/cars spend significant amount of time on the paint and prep of the exterior of their Lemons car, with love for their theme.
It is like graffiti vandalism tagging, in my opinion.

Otherwise we had a great time racing with you this weekend.  We never had any issues with you guys on the track.  So hope you make it to NJ.

Retaliation?:  maybe watch you drive your beautiful, fancy BMW behind a slow class C car for one hour in NJ?!  Or is that too severe of a punishment?  Just a thought....!

Take care!

Re: who is 888 wont tang clan?

I always considered getting stickered by another team part of the comradery of the LeMons community.

Not really sure why people are so upset about this, especially in this instance. The stickers in question were the smallest team stickers I have seen in my 22 races, but evidently the butthurt is strong.

Re: who is 888 wont tang clan?

100% that ^^^

We're all there doing the same thing, you should be making friends, not getting angry. It's a sticker. Go have a beer with them next race now that you've been tagged. Buy some stickers of your own. Lighten up and laugh about the tiny things.

Re: who is 888 wont tang clan?

Stickers are 90 percent of the reason I'm keeping the all the back glass on our Volvo. It's sticker space that won't be painted over in re-theming or repairing the car.

I personally welcome sticker tagging, but perhaps to avoid any conflict, maybe teams can put their stickers under a wiper or on the dash instead of sticking it to the car? Perhaps some racers would love to have stickers, but prefer to stick them on other things besides their race car.

Re: who is 888 wont tang clan?

I can understand stickering the race car, but stickering the RV, street cars, tow rigs, or  even trailers without permission seems like it might be in poor taste.

I believe it's primarily the "and my RV" part of the incident. A race car, per Rule 1.6, is a $500 disposable commodity. Stuff happens and it's no big deal.

A support vehicle, on the other hand, is another matter entirely. In my case, it's perhaps $350 at most. An improperly placed sticker could cause significant structural damage.

Re: who is 888 wont tang clan?

I agree with not sticking support vehicles and trailers.   Apparently this particular rv may have been mistaken for a lemons car by a certain intoxicated miscreant.   

Again. Sorry for sticker.   

I have a new more annoying way of spreading stickers for the next race that does not involve sticking

Re: who is 888 wont tang clan?

At one race we handed the judges a fat stack of our "Sorry for Party Racing" bumper stickers which then got applied to cars that came through the penalty box. There was one MR2 that pretty much got covered nose to tail.

Provably don't want to start that one up. Especially with a former D2 speedball player here. A big thing about paintball is safety along with the inaccuracy of them. You can really injure someone bad with a paintball marker.

It was actually a veiled reference to lemons humble and dangerous beginnings back in the day.  Jay would shoot offending cars with a paintball gun on track.  As you can see clearly that was not a good idea.

Now that you say that, I do recall slight about that, but never would have knew it until you said it.

Man, you must get really pi$$ed when the judges tag your race car with the 'bribed' stencil.

We still bribe and still refuse the bribe stencil.  Yeah.. I know...

Actually, I always "bribe", and always take the stencil.  I  consider the "bribed" stencils as part of the decor of my car.  I am collecting them on my trunk, which is dedicated to the wonderful stencils.  I would not be happy if someone was to sticker over all those wonderful stencils, and then I would need to remove all the stickers, and ruin my stencil collection.

But I am certain, some people collect random stickers on their race car, and that is part of their decor, and would welcome them.  To each, his own.

And as you well know, they always "ask" if you would like your car stenciled.  Which makes sense to me.

So it would make sense to me that anyone would "ask" if they would like their car stickered.

Anyways, I hope you understand...if not, come for vodka and beer at the next race in my garage, and I am sure you will see my point soon....!

And, I agree....a small sticker is not worth getting upset over....it is removable, washable...I just prefer not to have one placed...or maybe asked, at least.  If it was a really cool sticker, I might want one placed somewhere specific.  I don't really like stickers on the outside of my car, but I like the inside all stickered up....

Come to think of it, I hope no one eggs, toilet papers, shaving creams my house, and does burn outs on my lawn this Halloween....even though all that is cleanable and repairable also....

Take care!

I got stenciled and stickered at the last event.  I doesn't bother me in the least and it really shouldn't , but to each his own.  To me, it's all part of the fun.

Now, crashing into and destroying my car.............yea, I'd have a problem with that!

Try a heat gun on the RV sticker. Just a little heat will soften it up and make it really easy to remove.
