That's hilarious. There would be a he!! of a lot of splashing. I would be something like "pshhhhh,,grlgrlgrlgrlgrlglr and then silence."

I would definitely go back home on that one.

If I owned that track with the hill climb turn on it. I for sure would get Jenny Craig to sponsor that turn!!!

I think that the loop would work better if it was a little taller, and if you didn't have to turn as soon as you come out of it, if they would have kept it so that you come out straight then you could stay on-throttle and just go straight, it would have made that section of the track better, but that still doesn't help the rest of the track's crappy layout

Talking Track layout.

Hmm.

I agree with someone who said giving points for imagination.


If I could make a few suggestions.

1. I would make the loop larger.
2. I would put the loop on the top of a hill. (Like hotwheels, you come out
of the loop and have to make a jump) After the loop, jump down a hill.
3. I would get rid of some of the straights. Too many.
4. I would get rid of the abrupt turns, right after the loop and after the
double. This is killing peoples speed.
5. I would seriously consider putting in a grading of some kind for the
over/under. This way drivers can see where they are going. I would
no have to get stuck under there and have a turn marshall get my car
and get clobbered by a car coming into the tunnel.
6. The wall turn is too small.

For the size of the area, The track doesn't flow very well. Too much start and stop.
