I like the new layout, I can not wait to get back down there.


Do you guys know if they have the A-main from the ROAR race from last year?


Thanks
Kevin Boyle

My only complaints about the track are:

1. Landing ramp for the triple could stand to be bigger
2. Whoop section needs to lose a bump or two and be a little more spread out so you can actually get a rhythm through it with a buggy. MT's and Trugs did ok, but still got tossed on their lids a lot.
3. Need to touch up the step up. Certain parts on the 1st kicker would kick you hard left into the wall. I broke twice on that.

Other than that I like the track, it got pretty good towards the end of the day. It was a muddy mess in the morning.

Looks like the Buggy A will have to wait until tomorrow. Damn YouTube site maintenance

Check back in the AM

Buggy A part 2 up.

Anyone know of a better hosting site for video? YouTube murdered the quality I worked for hours to preserve while keeping the file size reasonable.

Nice vid's... looks like some of those jumps could be brutal if you screw up though. The jump to 180 at the front straight (just watch the truggy b main start.. overshoot and into the wall) and the back step up with the wall both come to mind.

When I first put my car on the track I did just that, scared the shit out of the guys standing behind the fence

The worst part was by far the first kicker on the step up. A few guys ended up in the woods or smacking the leading edge of that wall REALLY hard I got kicked into it twice really hard (not the edge though thank God) and broke a left rear hub and left upper front arm.

And a couple of people ended up in the woods on the turn into the back stretch.
