Gotta admit, that's a good looking track. I have seen others with flowers and stuff around them and even small silly signs that added to the looks of the track.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ONE IMPORTANT CHANGE!!!!!!!!!!!
We are moving our test day from this SAT (May 5th) to the following day, Sunday (May 6th) Track opens at 9am and we will start racing (testing the system) when enough folks show up!

Bring what ever electric vehicle you got out and lets get some track time!

The track needed some rain! I am pretty sure the track will be ready to rock this Sunday for a Test run of the system!

I will keep you all informed on track conditions as we get closer.

Awesome. I'm totally game for this!!

I run both, 2wd Mod Buggy and 2wd SCT.. I have quite a few diff motor setups, so I'm open to running anything that people are more accustomed to or comfortable running with (motor-wise)

Plus, I work for myself, so I can make my own schedule and would be free to help out anyway I can, whenever!

Cheers guys, looking forward to coming out and running with ya'll!!

Light rain, just enough to water the track! Clay looks good!

I will keep you posted on the tracks condition, so far the track is fine.
