Nitro tracks there are plenty of, Crystal Park has some crappy management though, I really dont know how to get on that track because you need a membership but they dont reply to any e-mails about getting one.

There's going to be a new off-road indoor track opening up fairly soon about 1/2 mile from Bending Cornerz. Should be a good high bite track.

Hey Randy,
What's the 'standard' caster block when running on outdoor asphalt? Can I get away with 6-degree?

4 degree would be standard, I rarely use 2 degrees but never used a 6.

After two rounds of quals Mi3, SP GT SP 10.5 and Core 5000 Lipo have TQ, traction is coming way up and have a great fear of traction rolling, using CA on front tires, as well as YOK sd/bd front steerig knuckles, these allow the axles to sit in on the arm a mm or two and i can safely go to 3mm front spacers on the hinge pins, What else might i try, i have one more qual in about a hour and one in the morning. looking for "tricks" to try during tonights practice.

Has anybody posted a picture of their Mi3 with the SP GT installed yet? I'd like to get a look at it in the car.
