I ordered the wide large radius nascar oval track for the club! These large radius turns should allow for some interesting layouts. Not sure of shipping date yet.

it's official, this BTE will be run on the smooth side. this will give us an opportunity to test it out ;)

i will need assistance in switching over the track in the morning so that we can start qualifying on time. we will switch over only what we need for the event and will discuss balance of the season afterward prior to doing anything else.

thank you to all who made it this day! while attendance was smaller than normal, we still had 8 drivers to compete! given the spectacular weather, it was not surprising :o

competition was good, all were adjusting to the characteristics of the smooth side so all were in the same boat. it was a bit more frustrating to retune to the surface when everyone is settled in their setup for the rough side but we made due.

saint probably ran the best and most consistent of all with his stock LM. Phoenix is no running his ASF stock so keep an eye out:p

new camera setup did not work as planned, but that why we test so working still on better system. i do have a couple video's that i will post with the results as soon as HFAY posts the times.
