I guess you have to show up late afternoon, early evening.

A BIG thanks to Jim & Tim for the Great steps & platform Thanks also to Sebastion for the extra hands, helped speed up the build.
Puffed a Lipo with little practice I got , but sale on Gens Ace, so bought 2 sets of saddle packs 4800's & 3500 mah for mine. All hard cased. Durango made the track (I just suck driving), just too dry & traction wasn't there.

Erik, they worked. they had the best forward power i have seen on that track so far. and if they are like the motocross tires they can be flipped when wore out for double the life.

Just built 1st prototype framing for ramp to pit stand Used a 30 degree angle, 45 seemed too steep. Won't know till I run out to track & sit it against That's the only drawback to building @ home & not @ track, could be trail & error I'm so ready to turn some laps, but build comes first in my "Manic Mind"

Shawn, also ran out of screws Sat. 3" in decking seems overkill, but 1 type of screw easier to work with, your call. 1 big box should do it ?

Middle of steps need some
Handicap flooring & ramp leading to
Step to drivers stand needs done
Ramp framing I just used old one's
