Drove out there on Friday night. They were running behind on getting some things done, but it didn't really matter to me. I grabbed a hose and helped water the 1/10th scale track. With the wind and sun it wasn't holding water very well, but once the sun went down things improved dramatically.

The 1/10th scale track is a blast. Just the right size, flows great, and jumps are sized appropriately to keep it challenging. Not much in the way of elevation changes, but there were some off camber areas and more than a couple of tear-drop turns and switchbacks. Late in the night we had a small mock race (3 short course trucks) and it was an absolute blast. Racing on this track will be fun for sure.

The 1/8th scale track is HUGE. I swear its big enough to ride a dirt bike on... I was crazy intimidated by it at first glance. Took my new truggy out and got a feel for the layout. The option section was the hardest for me because it leads directly away from you and that makes it hard to judge the distance and size of the jumps.

There were more people watching than driving, so I gave into the peer pressure and attempted to quad the big rythm section. Well actually I was trying to judge the speed to do the first triple and almost quaded. The cheers and ooooo's and ahhh's were just fuel for my stupidity. I was running 6S, so power was not an issue. Jeff was standing next to me on the driver stand and commented that I could easily quad in. So I cut the track and went around again. The head wind sure made things interesting, but I eventually got the quad.

Just like before, I gave it too much throttle one time around and nosed into the 5th jump. Jeff then commented with excitement that he knew people would be able to jump 5 deep in if they wanted. I gave it another try but the wind and the 6S power just made the truggy want to back flip and held it up from making the distance cleanly. Its doable for sure, but risky. Fastest way through seems to be to triple in, then double double out. Lots of options to work with there.

The truggy couldn't take the abuse though, and a few minutes later the servo saver broke in the option section. Luckily I could rob the parts I need from my Vorza later in the night and run the truggy some more.

In all it was a great night. The tracks were awesome and aside from one guy who was being a jerk on the 1/10th scale track everyone was nice and friendly. Can't wait to go back.
