Of the AKA some of us on buggy liked the cityblocks. I used soft, but would have run super soft if they had em then because it was the fall-kinda cool

Ah, try some super softs and see how they go. Typically you go softer as the weather drops. But i tend to stay at the softest compound mostly.



Nice Brandon! What buggy you rockin?

Default Track progress

We put in a full day on the track yesterday, kinda got carried away with the stripping process, the track foot print is now going to be 200'x90'. You can see by the photos bellow we cut the ground level down 4-6 inches and piled up all the dirt. The screen comes this Tuesday and the light poles are scheduled for the 20th of this month. I'm going to do everything I can to make the May 8th race a night race but we'll have to see. Sorry for the delay.
