SV is a great track and tell Marvin that Fraz from NorCal says hi. There are a few probs with SV.
1) No promotion of events.
2) Track is a little too big. Designed for 1/5 scale and the tallest 1/8 scale gearing isn't enough. 1/10 scale gearing isn't even close to tall enough. You end up straining motors and stretching rods. You can run large tires but the track is fairly abrasive and you go through big tires quickly.
3) Hard to see sedans far away at end of straight.
4) Lack of organization.
5) Location, location, location. When you have Crystal Park and Revelation located much closer to the core of the racers in SoCal and regular organized races there, it's an uphill battle. I travel from NorCal and I race at all of these tracks so I don't count
6) Radio hits from offroad guys who don't give a sh__. This has been a problem since the offroad track went up. It happened enough times that people got mad at folding up their $2000-3000 1/8 and 1/5 scales because somebody with an RTR was careless and nobody in charge controlled the situation.
I have personally logged thousands of laps there and enjoy the track and the layout. At one race I got clocked at 73MPH on the back straight with my 1/8 scale and that was flying.
It is not a commentary to Marvin as these has been the same problems with KZ since the beginning with Karlton. Some of this can be corrected with the right promotion and a little effort but somebody has to be willing to do the work.
