These are the Dejavu corner humps....they are not ramps. You need to roll these to go thru the sections quickly. Not easy.

Hey guys. Can I get some more info? Is that track a permanent track or is it built just for the Psyco Nitro blast? Where is it? do you move the event every year? I saw the utube Video from last year and I really want to come out and race in one of these events.

Are you guys going to sink the jumps this year so the wood lip doesn't rip off toe plates?

They build that huge indoor track every year for 3 days only and then tear it down? Is the racing 24-7 for 3 straight days?

Yep. You have a very good handle on the situation.

There are enough pit tables to go around, but some people bring them anyway.

If you missed it Thursday night here are some pics of the rollers AKA the DEJAVU section.












These features are NOT jumps. They are CORNER HUMPS that will be placed in corners that are back to back. You will enter the 1st corner and will have to make a 180 degree turn going over the hump, then you will accelerate briefly then enter a 90 degree corner and roll the next hump. keeping all four tires on the humps and making the corners smoothly is extremely fast and fun. the trick for the second hump for sure will be to accelerate down the back side hard because waiting for you will be a low-fast jump with a nice little gap. speed will be everything there. Get the throttle finger ready!
