Thanks guys for all nice words. The photos unfortunately doesn't give them justice. The track is acually larger than it is. Actually, yes. The track is fairly technical but, it's perfect for testing. The track design prior to this one was a good flowing nitro sedan track. Most tracks here in Northern California are alittle smaller than this one and alot more technical with lanes being narrower than this track. SpeedWorld Raceway ( Billy Bowerman's track ) is a really good track as well with good flow to it. The problem for me is that SpeedWorld is 2 hours away while this track is 10 minutes away from home. The fastest lap time I pulled on this design was a 16.1 lap with an average lap time of 16.5 sec. E.J. Evans ( a highly respectable electric driver here in northern california ) pulled a fast lap of 15.8 with his mod Top racing electric sedan. So, all in all, I guess im ok if im almost pulling electic mod times with a nitro sedan car
. I was thinking about opening up one section right after the scoring tower so that I can just go straight into the right hand sweeper instead of going into the bottom "T" section of the track. Here's some videos of the previous track designs we had. Sorry guys for the electric cars, but at least it'll give you a little perspective on how big the track is.
( This layout, I pulled a 14.1 with an average of 14.6. The fast electric guys ( Juan Aventia, Lex Tyler, and E.J. Evans ) I beleive were pulling high 13's to low 14's with thier mod electric cars. )
( This video, the guys were going backwards with thier mini's to get ready for TCS Nationals. )
The brass battery tray was given to me by Steve Sohl ( Sohlman ). The car makes weight as it is right now. If you use titanium pivot balls and screws all the way around the 4R, then you'll have to use the brass battery tray. My car is fairly stock with just titanium screws.
asw7576: I'll give you the set-up that I used for this track later on today as im just about to leave soon.
