Most likely there will be a new layout. But I hope not. The current layout is one of the best yet!

There is no limit and nobody will be turned away! Unless you have nails coming out of your front bumper! And yes I have seen it happen too, lol. I don't know if its going to be changed or not. I know there was talk about having a pre-race so the non-local guys have time to setup there rides.

Bernie told me that he's going to make some changes to the layout right before the race, but not a complete new design. I'm pretty sure that Friday practice will be the first time anyone sees these changes, but that's just me guessing.

I really like the Panther Switch 2.0 Clays with AKA foams and AKA rims. I did have to drop the center diff because the hard foams give the car a little bounce. I run the RC8, so if anybody needs setup help just PM me. I'm also running the truggy rear tower.
