The oval at the cp mini raceway in undergoing a transformation. Seams like overlands are starting to be the craze there and Eric is installing jumps and obsticals to the large oval. I was last there on Friday and he was just starting this project. I plan on being thee tonight and running on this track (along with the weekly stock racing) I know a few people that go there frequently and read this forum so Trevor, is he done with the OL track and what is your impression. Also, I can expect to see you there tonight too right? looking for some racing of the OL's between the stock heats!
I was at the track on Monday night to do a little dialing-in of my racer and when that was sorted out played with the Overland on the new track for a while.
At that point in time the track was not complete. There are a few different jumps in various stages of completion.. ..I think he is still trying to hash out some of the details such as jump height, placement, etc.
Dunno how far things have come since then.
I'll have my truck with me tonight and hopefully get the chance to play around a bit between the heats and mains.
Are you a Speed Freek?
what's the track surface made of? heard that one of the kyosho cup races was held over there... what were the rules? and what kind of lap counter was used? did they use the one from ko? i think they call it the arc-12 or something... i think i've read an article about it somewhere... guess i'll have to so some searching...
The track surface is plywood painted grey with sand mixed in. Yes they had the MiniZ Cup there this year and word has it, they will be there again next year. used transponders for the track. I think it started with a A. Hopefully someone else remembers. I really didn't like it. The extra weight and unreliability of it wasn't good for the races. In my opinion.
amb??? think i saw some pics... thanks for the info... putting the transponder on looks quite cumbersome... especially if you got most of the hop ups... saw a pic of one car with the transponder mounted on the hood...
