What type of pipe is that? It looks like seemless PVC of some type.
Yes, it is PVC, they are joined by smaller diameter pieces inside to make it seamless. On some areas Joe (owner) uses rubber flex pipe, like at the end of the pipe coming straight off from the drivers stand. Locally known as the "candy cane"
The track has very good consistent traction all around and is smooth to boot too.

Great job on that. We have a place that uses PVC pipe but they use a coupler that goes over the pipe and leaves a 1/8" lip and it rips parts off the car if you brush the pipe.

Yes, I know what you mean. I've been there too, just a slight brush against the pipe and

whilst were showing off pics of our tracks, here is our lovely facility in Melbourne, Australia.
http://www.tftr.org.au/

This is a fairly old pic, we now run a single layout per 6 month championship, so no longer use witches hats to designate the layout, and have boards in place.


the track runs on a slope, so your going downhill whilst accelerating down the straight, makes for a pretty hairy turn 1 taken flat out.

I have a mi2 I am looking to get rid of, I was just wondering what would be a good price to sell it for. It has the bmi 2 foam chassis and thick top deck. It has steel drive shafts and is pretty much stock.

That's nice. I always like tracks with a little elevation change. The old Hobby Central Parking lot was on a slope and had an off camber down hill sweeper on the right at the end of the straight. I miss racing there. My car always worked well there.

Justin, Wyd will have all the info you need for both Jackson and Frederick. I still havent been to either with the new car yet. I would bet that setups are going to be very close. I am going to start out this weekend with my setup on the car and if I have time switch it over and try yours. Theres a few things I want to try still on what I have already on the car. I will post something up next weekend with what I ended up running.

Depends on your track conditions; I would start 1 hole out from the inside front and rear.
