Hope the meeting goes well tonite, we need to get that ground cleared so we can build Paulie's dream track, might as well leave the blacktop there...
Funny Jon, funny.

Actually, I'm really taking to this off-road thing...the element of 3D (jumps) is what I like best, and the fact that every lap is different because the track changes over time.

Thanks Joe, hope you can make some of the meetings or get to the track when it opens...having a slash bash at my house track on Memorial Day.

So no blacktop for Paulie, I'll get him a broom to sweep the dirt of the track...

Got some new/used tires in for my buggy, 7 sets to be exact, a few would be good for street testing or hard pack...better than having kyosho and uh kyosho...

Anybody got hot leads on an ISO or maybe we could buy some storage sheds as people are PCS'ing soon and getting rid of them cheap. It doesn't take much to strap them down.

I know Uehara-san was planning on building another track, wonder what he's going to be hauling and what he's gonna toss from Bios...need to find out...

Here is a rough outline of what was decided at the meeting tonight. WE have a usable area about 250ft X 250ft. The squares are 20 X20, it gives you a general idea of the game plan. Robert, if this would help as an attachment to the LOI, just let me know. This is not the design of the tracks, just a visual of the track sizes.

Thanks Paulie.

Jon :
We decided to leave the layout of the kiddy track to you, we figured that is a good place for you to hone those driving skills

Thanks! I'm looking forward to designing the kiddie track. Of course no noisy nitro will be allowed and I don't really have to worry about driving skills, especially when four out of six nitros flame out every race...

Hopefully the track will be big enough for your Baja, the biggest problem they had at BIOS was that is broke the PVC pipe when it hit, so any thing it breaks you might have to fix...

Anyone running a revo? How does the revo fare at bios? lol...anyone have an extra engine for a revo?!?!?!?

For this new track at courtney, are we still thinking of more than one track? Or did we switch to just one nice track?

This exact topic came up at the meeting last night, at this time there will be no restrictions on the Nitro track, "Run What You Brung". If in the future it becomes a problem with damage to the track it can be re-addressed.

First few questions are still open for discussion. BTW, Joe B. How is your 523 working for you? Mine is horrible...

You will find several Revo's on Island. I have a retired big block, and I currently run an E-Revo. Like any track that runs Monster Trucks the Revo will dominate, there are quite a few guys running Savages and A T-maxx or 2.

What kind of motor are you looking for, I may have a 2.5R but I know I have everything for a big block conversion......
