I like number 5. How wide are the lanes going to be? Any chance on 10ft? Nice racing with you this weekend also.

thanks, sorry if i took you out! had a bad RX 8 and everytime it would land it would turn left and shut off.

Thanks for the input we are attemping to find a good flow fo the track next year. Also spread it out and allow for nitro to run well.

Looking at Friday nights , and alternating saturday and Sundays this year.

The lanes are 14' wide on all layout options. Also, any input you may have for jumps and elevated areas to keep things interesting would be appreciated. All suggestions will be considered as the idea behind having the layout options on here is to try accommodating what the racers would like to see and enjoy. Please keep comments coming!

No problems with you this weekend. Can't miss that bright pink truck. The main was someone with a dark black/blue truck that kept t boning every time I would get passed him clean. Dropped me from starting 3rd to dead last on the first lap. Finally had to just put the bumper to him and worked my way back up to 4th by the end.

I would suggest to remember line of sight with the jumps and placement of them. That will keep your bigger jumps on the farther lanes to not block views of the track. Try to incorporate downsides for the jumps also. I am fan of smooth flowing jumps with less technical areas that seem to cause first lap pile ups. That is something to think about is the placement of your first obstacle and whether or not it will be enough distance from the start to allow decent starts without a first corner pileup. I was referring to 10ft lanes in case a ROAR event may end up on your schedule. Lastly, you have to factor in where the water is going hold up because it always seem to rain the day before race day.
