Don't let my avatar fool you...I come from an on-road background and I'm just starting 1/8 nitro buggy with an 8ight.

Thanks in advance regarding what tires to run at Revelation.

i agree with sideways88 M3 holeshots are usually the fastest lap times but wear out fast, i sometimes race with M3 bowties also for the longer mains, i use them in pratice too, but the new tire that seems to last alot alot alot longer than M3 holeshots and as fast if not faster lap times then the holeshots are the AKA city blocks........

Alright....what do you guys think of the new layout? I think it is cool in some spots but weird in others.

What is your take on it?

+1 New lay is technical I like it a lot. BUT

Practice at Rev is getting out of control. I know racing is racing BUT when people drive across the front straight to get off the track with out looking or jump into on comming lanes SLOW DOWN. 1st time at Rev it wasnt fun.

I think Dana should Split practice time. Beg./Novice and Ama./ Expert.

I really like the new layout, its challenging has big hits and tech sections. Very nice!!

On the side note of wild practices...
I think it has always been this way when Dana builds a new layout. Drivers can get out of control while learning what jumps to hit, or where on the track to grab gas, but it should calm down after a few weeks. Just give it some time...

Airtronics........

This will be a ton of fun, see you all at the track! Don't miss this race!
