Default not much prrogress 2day

The ground was so wet from 2 days of rain felt like I was spreading spackle all day !!! Got a little bit done on the back stretch. Put a high speed jump in and turned some spots over to speed up drying. Before I added material I was ankle deep in mud. Was a little worried about choice of track placement but as the day progressed things dried up a little. Should be a little better 2moro.

Dont know if you came by or not ?? I only stay'd from 930 to 1230 ! Was still too wet !! I did get a chance to test the front stretch and the jump after turn two! Wasnt bad !! Had to add some material to the take off ramp, wasnt enough lift ! Even giving it a snap at the top still kept noseing into the landing ramp with my slash and hyper. I wont be there most of this week. got called into work. Suppose to rain almost every day anyway ! But if anyone wants to stop by and check out my nitemare you are more than welcome My partner slash the land owner is there 6 days a week only closed on mondays. His name is Steve real good guy ! Going to go there 2moro after I get back in town 2 see what the morning rain left me. Hope for the best !!

I went to steve's marine and across the street just could not find a place that remotely looked like a track was being built. If you can post an address it would make it easier. btw i was in the neighborhood around 11am. I'll try again sometime this week.

They are just practicing on the track which is a carpet track with jumps. And, they're open until the wee hours of the night ( well, almost ). Just not sure if I can swing the $7 / hr rate they charge.

Sorry you couldnt find me ! If you were at Steves Marine the track is behind the building. Just go rite in the show room and let them know you are there for the track. I went back to work this week so I havnt been there all week. Today im helping the wife setup the new location for her resturaunt. Best dam burritos in RI will be located at The Bristol Club House on tupelo st. in Bristol I will be working on the track a few days next week after work! The week the kids are on vacation I will be at the track every day ! After all the rain last week we decided to bring in more fill ! Trying to avoid any and all water issues. I will check in here around wed.

I stopped by Steve's marine about a month ago and the property owner was really nice and gave me a tour of the proposed track. It looked exactly like that last picture. It has potential and the start of a drivers' stand but it needs some intense grading and drainage done in order to ever be viable.

Never heard back from the guy who was posting on here about starting it up.
