2 triples and the rest it flat. Not a lot of distance to get over all 3 or 2 consistently without slamming into the wall on the other end of the jumps. Its still fun though.

Default Track has been expanded!

The track at Rockfield has been expanded. This is first hand knowledge as I helped yesterday for about 7 hours to do it. Extended the front wall of the track about 9 feet. That wall has also been cut down to about 18 inches. First part of track is more technical with second part more speed. Small tabletop, speed jumps and a triple. Drivers stand will be extended to allow more room for drivers and moved back from the front wall a bit to discourage "leaners". Most of the track and jumps built with Ohio clay. Some of the older section of the track is a mixture of hard packed dirt and clay. Track is holding together well.

Big Colerain Hobbies sponsored trophy race this Sunday. Doors open at 1PM. 2wd SCT, 4wd SCT, 2wd open wheel, youth and 1/8 buggy if enough participants.

For those of you who have been away for a while, give it a shot at coming back. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Good time had by all last night for the Colerain Hobbies Trophy Race. Trophies given to first, second and third place finisher in each class, plus a $10 Colerain Hobbies gift certificate to the first place winner in each class.

Had some come back who have been away for a while. They seemed genuinely pleased with the improvements to the track.

New track design is definitely killer. Had a great time. Think I am going to have to see about an open wheel too. Waiting between Short Course races gets a bit slow for me, so I need something else to break.

We need to get more of the short course buggies out there like the Losi xxx-scb and the Kyosho Ultima DB. It'd be cool to have a class dedicated to those. I'm diggin' that Losi xxx-scb so far.
