The lot just got resurfaced. A whole new black aspault. Smooth. Some of the bumps are still there, but much smaller, and cracks are gone. We'll see how it goes next race.

Default New asphault?

Hobby Town just got resurfaced?

Huh.

I did just get a bunch of new foam tires to try.

Is new asphault more or less grippy than after it has been there a while?

I think it depends alot on if it was just sealed or actually repaved. I know sealed surfaces I've run on tend to be low on traction. However, brand new asphault may have too much oil still in it to get some real good grip. I guess we'll have to just go and try. I won't be able to make this race either. It's the last race in the RC Heat Silver cup series and I have an outside (very outside) shot @ it.

Do they allow foams at Hobby Town?

I don't think they will be inspecting but to be fair, everyone else runs rubber. So unless you want a bunch of guys thinking of you as a cheater, I'd stick to the rubber tires.

I think they will allow anything, its pretty loose and casual, but best to check with the guys at the shop. The track is actually resealed, not resurfaced to be accurate.

Default Hobby Town

The surface was a little better than last month the bumps are less of an issue, and the cracks are gone.

The new sealant has made it a little slipery, but consistant.

Racing started late again, after they said it would start at 10 AM it actually started at 11:15. Kind of a thin turn out, most classes only had a couple of cars.

Thay also said they would take a 30 minute lunch break, and it ended up beng an hour and a half. If you say you are going to do something, do it. I hate waiting!

I gues it is unrealistic to want to do three rounds of racing in four hours.

Next Saturday at Hobby Central!

Dmack. I agree, there shouldn't be that much waiting. With that much time we could have done a 3 round of qualifying. My spare time is rare and wasted tim sucks. I liked the layout way better this time; more places to pass and stilll technical but with flowing sections.
