Did it rain you guys out yesterday?
What kind of tires is best suited for this track? Soft or Mediums?

Will the next race be Feb 9th?
Is there any chance of maybe a test and tune on this comming Saturday? I don't care I'd the loop is up and running or not would like to drive on the track some to see what changes are needed on the truck

No there wasn't enough rain to do anything, just some sprinkles here and there.
We were done by about 6:20. For racing this coming sat. I am finding out about it on our facebook page.

We are racing this coming sat. the 9th, weather permitting.Gates will open at 9 A.M. signups over at 12:30 and racing starting at 1:00. As for test and tune at the track unless you are a member to get in, we don't open the track for test and tune days right now. I do remember we used to have practice nights and days. But haven't had any for a while now. If you become a member you can go whenever you want through the week and weekends.

Im slow sometimes, so im asking this for clarity. Are saying that the track is on schedule to finish ONLY in time for the SC championship or that the purpose of redoing the track is for the SC championship? Just wondering if ill be able to come by in the next two weeks after i get all my parts in for my truck in...

Glad to see all the new people at the track yesterday. Had a great day of racing! As like I said before yesterday was the last day of the old layout. The new one has already been started with the removal of all the pipe to get the dirt up and loads brought in. The club President announced the track is closed till the Short Course Championship in april on the 13th. So no running till then. Hope to see everyone at the big race!!

Default AMBrc Transponder Repair....

Hi guys,

I have to break in here to try to find an AMBrc system owner in Florence Alabama. I was send a single AMBrc house transponder to work on and there was no name or return address included. I searched for any correspondence with the owner and did not find him. Do any of you know who this may be? Please let me know. Thank you.

Regards,
Kevin

Track rebuild update. The track is all built and has some awesome BIG jumps. We need to get the pipe down and we might end up opening up one day before the big Short Course race on the 13th to help break in the new layout. If we do open up one day I will post on here for what day and times.

Juat a quick follow up to the previous post by ACC. A few of us will be out on Wednesday and Thursday working on a few finishing touches. As of right now we are planning an open practice on friday night depending on the weather. I'll keep you updated on the progress.

Default SOLVED...

All is good now. I know where the transponder came from and it is fitted with a new cell. It can go out after the silicone sets up. Thanks...
