cp mini raceway

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'll be there to whup yer arse as usual, Paul

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.

-Trevor

I didn't wind up needing to do the mod since Eric had and extra set of OL knuckles in stock.

I'll try the mod sometime in the future however.. ..basically it involves swapping a racer knuckle for an OL one. Requires a little fabrication but I think it is doable.

You hired people to flip your car back onto its wheels every time you roll it over? Seems like gravity was your biggest competition last week LOL!!

Yea, that was something. Hope it dosn't happen this week. have to stay off the walls and away from the other racers. This is one case where it is better to give than receive

today eric started to put rubber on the jumps. So when we move the jumps the rubber will adjust . So the jumps will be level.

herman,

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...

Yup, hard to get it under the body. I had mine on the trunk. really mesed up the handling. and sometimes it missed my laps. I really didn't like it.
