Definitely looks challenging!
Call me old school, but where is the straightaway? And does every section of track have to have a whoop, jump, or bump?

I think the section in front alone makes it better than last years track, THAT IS SICK!!!! Anybody can do a few large step-ups in a row, but that 12 pack is insane!!

I think every track should have a straightaway....If not for anything else then to hear the scream of the engines on top end...!!!

theres a little one in front of the 12 pack

dont get me wrong, i enjoy the occasional drag race down the straight, but the bumps, jumps, and whoops are where the real driver skill is needed

That is not much of a straight !

I agree, the more bumps and jumps the more skill is needed.... However i am just a average Joe Ham and Egger driver and that track is just not anything I think I would enjoy racing on...amazing track track tho, just way too complicated for my skill level....

The track definitely looks challenging and seems even the top drivers are having some difficulty. Without a straight away how are they going to start the A-main. Are some vehicles going to have to start in the middle of a jump? I am probably missing something though.

they are going to start on the little straight before the 12 pack. im assuming they will start in rows of two drivers like they did for the nitro cross

As Joey said It's the Ntro Challenge not the Nitro Easy.

It looks really tough. That track will help drivers develop great throttle/break and buggy/truggy control.

Glad i wasnt the only one to notice the lack of a full throttle straight. It does seem to be a missing element. All that land out there and no actual full throttle straight. Some people prefer straights and some dont. Imo every track at any skill level should have a true full throttle straight. Altogether though the lack of a straight is definately made up by all the full throttle jumps which is a plus

Funny thing, the straight section before the big banked corner is probably longer than a lot of tracks straights anyway. My thinking (Coming from a guy that runs mostly on road now) Off road should be exactly that, off road. I like this layout, and would enjoy a couple of laps on it. The challenge of it is pretty cool.
