Can anyone get some pictures or video of the new layout? I don't have enough cash to come race for the next couple of weeks. I want to see the new layout!

Defiantly a nice layout. Thanks to Lance for the clunk that kept my buggy going (until it flamed out due to old age)

I also went out today the Caster performed flawlessly. I did manage to break an arm but it was random just landed weird and no not off the big jump....Other thing Is i managed to overtighten my front brakes so they were dragging at the end of the day no biggie 5 minute fix.. Oh I wanted to take photos for ya SMB but my dang batteries were dead..i put them on the charger last night but went to take photos and they wouldn't work

So I was there for the club racing on Sat. I do enjoy the layout, and while the big jump is fun... I think it needs to be toned down just a bit for some margin of error. I was having a helluva time getting my engines to work, still not sure whats going on as the one was operating great during practice, the only thing I can come up with is either I cracked the tank and haven't found the leak, or something more severe. There are some blind spots, but they are nothing to worry to much about from a drivers point of view. Where they stood out the most was when corner marshalls couldn't find/ see your car... But all said and done, love the layout, Im sure I would've loved it more had my Truggy been 100%, but next time :P

But heres some photos (Blocked out a friend, not sure if they wanted thier photo posted in here)

It looks crazy from the ground.. I had to feather the throttle just to hit the landing perfect. The jump was made nice...it puts your car level with minimal inputs, you don't have to triple it if you dont have the speed... The whoop section seems a little off to me..but its a fun layout....
