i know fridays are the days reserved for renovation/maintenance but a whole brand new layout is tough to do in one day unless he has a lot of help.
i talk to Dan a few weeks back and I asked him the same question, in regards of re-doing the track in one day. He said he can do it with ease. I take his word for it.

Hi Everyone,
I just got off the phone with Dan. They are completely rebuilding the track right now. From what he described it should be awesome. See everyone tomorrow.

dan knows saturdays are were the money is made and with have good weather i am sure he will have the track rebuilt in time for tomorrow. as for being closed maybe he pulled the pipes out in pep for todays rebuild? and that does suck for your friend who wanted to race on a real track but come out tomorrow and get the full effect.

What tires work good at this ARC track? I was given a used set of Pro Line knuckles? Will they work good at this track? Also, what shock oils are you running for this track?

How do you get there from my house? I have never been.









Just playin'!! Looking forward to a new layout tomorrow!! It's been a while since I have been to ARC.

Grape is alright, but for a grippy track, you may want to try a jam, and not jelly. Strawberry works well when traction is high.

We finished the new track lay out around 8:30 last night.
Lots of turns, a triple, few doubles, a table, small step-up.
It's gonna be a mid 30's to low 40's time. No more 29's.
See you guy's out there.
