Here's an in-car video of our track...on a TC you can see how bumpy it is...just imagine how the pan cars feel the bumps in comparison. Still it is a fun track and I don't have to go through a ton of track setup in the mornings anymore thanks to someone else opening a track

Watch the side wall barrier as he hits the back straight and you'll see how bad the dips are there...and the independent suspension on the TC really helps to not show the bumps. TCs out there run at a minimum of a 6mm ride height...any lower and you'll be scraping ground a lot. I actually wore through my Corally Phi chassis and into the motor from scraping. The track really has come a long way though...when it first started out the seams were so bad it was like hitting a ramp. The owner has put a lot of work into getting things smoothed out and turned into the fun place it is to race today. And now that we are experimenting with sugar water on the track it is becoming an even better place to race!

Unfortunately for me as well, I will not be able to make it. I'm also 3 1/2 hours away but my presence at work is imperative. I will be stopping by though.

Carpet....I like the AMR12 or the Speed 8HD LW.

Asphalt...I don't run on asphalt with 1/12th. If we had a class I would....
