yeah i had to go, i had to leave by 7, when i looked at the time it was 7:15, had to roll out! the layout is fun... the is great if you make it clean, and don't get hit from behind, but you screw up, could be some broken parts for sure.

well chris says he doesnt like the quad as well and mentioned that it'd likely be removed for next race during late nite practice. i refused to do it the rest of the nite and i learned more thru course of nite but still need to cut out the mistakes as much as possible. xxx is easier to drive thats for sure.

Shouldn't be a problem in any buggy or mod truck. Hell I can land on top the last quad with a 5 1/2lb Slash. Hey no says you have to quad because doing double/double and never wrecking is in the long run faster than doing the quad and wrecking 3 or 4 times in a race. Still the most consistant driver every week wins in pretty much every class anyways.

For me the Spine jump was always money for me and one part I pretty much never messed up and looked forward to it. Now move it and for whatever reason I have a hard timing making it. I know its all me because I made it all the time before but its just my weak area right now. Just need to pick up my game on that thing for the weekend.

I can setup my Slash or Strike to make it as I have the power but I feel I will be giving up handling on the rest of the track vs making one jump that might only gain me a 1 tenth. I figure if I wreck thats more than 1 tenth.

Not sure why Warfield has a problem with the quad, he needs it to practice for 1/8 season.
