I took some too! Traction is surprisingly good for a track that hasn't been run on in a while, and will only get better with time and use. Hope everyone in the area can come out and support some Mini-Z racing.

Location is good size with ample room for pit space. Should be enough room there to get either of THESE layouts down.

Definately either layout will definately fit! I think even in the desiganated Mini-z area. As far as the carpet goes I think with some carpet specific tires and tuning you could find some grip.

I was able to get around the carpet a bit with my RCP set up, I would not recommend it though. With the right set up the carpet could be a lot of fun.

I'll be racing in Rock Hill tomorrow, and I normally try to do Easley on Saturdays. I'll try to swap my days and get by there now and then too.
A few of us tried it yesterday for kicks. From my perspective, it sucked. Got my AWD stuck under a disk and broke a piece off the body. My 2wd couldn't get enough traction going straight , but would flip in the turns . I'm sure working on the setup would improve handling, but even with the fastest motors, the width of the lanes would make it feel like running in slomo.

The RCP on the other hand was great!

Thanks to everyone who showed up and helped yesterday, and Thanks to Brent to allow us the opportunity to make this thing a go. It's gonna take a lot of work and effort. But, with the help of the 1/10 scale guys, a little good marketing, good inventory, clear rules for all the classes, and luck this thing could be big for all of us.

It will be a fine demonstration of speed from the winner of the last LeMans modified race at High Speed, check it out! Wish I could go, I hear the traction is great compared to the old track in the store.

Hey guys it looks great, but as far as a carpet track!!!!!!! That would be like going back to AM cars. We do look forward to an event at the new place.
