i dont think you need to put tape down on the carpet just mark a pipe with tape and line up to where the tape placement is

dan were you there last night the back jump looks long for stock just wondering if you tried it or not

marking it either way should be fine, just not duct tape, because it leave crap on the carpet. it will be quite simple just put the last truck against the pipe and then stagger them up to the front. I dont think we will run more than 5 trucks at a time. 4 could be tight with less experienced guys.

also yeah its funny everyone wants the ifmar, but everyone runs the mains heads up so the problem is there anyways when it counts the most.

i agree with andy on this one i dont think ifmar is the answer plus it could be confusing for some of the younger kids

Default New layout

My son loved the new layout. Was digging the big jump on back straight. I held my breath a few times on some possible head on collisions he almost caused. I'm glad nothing broke last night! Hope to be out next friday night.

Like andy said this has a technical part and a good staight away to get the motors nice and toasty Have had alot of fun on te road course the past couple of weeks. Thanks to everyone who has helped me out to learn the tricks of it.
