If you think the track is in need of repair or think it could be better, why don't YOU offer to help fix it? Too busy "beating off"? As for me I think it's great but if Kenny needs help fixing pipe I'll come out and get my hands dirty.

Who are you exactly?

My only complaint is that the layout is a bit blown out but that's offload racing, its supposed to be constantly changing. I think both tracks are in need of maintenance but nobody goes out there to get their hands dirty. If I didn't live 30 minutes away id be out there helping out, I help with track maintenance any chance I get while im there same with all other fear farm regulars, so if you're going to sit here and pick apart kennys race program go find another track to bitch about, this is one of the best race facilities in the country and were loosing it because people would rather complain then get off their asses and fix the problem.

No, but it could use a little tlc, the 1/10th is toast, I drove the hell out of last night trying to grove it up better for you guys before you ran your second heat did it help? I couldn't find the broom in the connex to sweep a groove do I let the 4wd to the work then I soaked it

But as far as the 1/8 track, it was designed to be a difficult layout, they don't call it nitro challenge for no reason, it comes down to set up and skill, the tracks obstacles were meant to test judgment and timing and that can be discouraging to some drivers. I've had good weekends and bad on this layout, in fact kbrl round 2 I had a horrible weekend and I broke almost every run and a tiny break that ruined my chance to bump into the b main...what im trying to get to is that its offload racing, some weekends it rough others the surface is amazing. So don't go pointing fingers at people who have no control how the surface is race night, or how you don't know how to set up your car to compensate to track conditions. If you have the audacity to sit behind your computer and make rude comments to someone who goes out of his way to make sure you have a race program to attend almost every weekend out of the year, I'm sure you have time to google other tracks that cater to your pre pre-Madonna needs.

Nothing aimed at you tom just clarifying my statement, please don't beat me up

Default Results....

I got into this hobby to get out of the house and be competitve at something. Every trip to the track, it serves its purpose for me and notice I didn't mention anything about doing well. We got done last night and then stuck around until 2AM just bull chitting and really that is where the best conversations happen, not on the internet.

I had a great time last night! Thanks for coming out all and good to see you CJ!

I'm no seasoned veteran. I only been racing in 1/8 scale for a short time. So I'm no expert but when I get there I walk the track and remove the big rocks on the surface. So you guys can have a decent surface. I myself have destroyed the front-end on my truggy from hitting a rock the size of a grapefruit. The same rock Gary landed on and bent his chassis. So yes it could use a lil grading or a fresh top coat. I also see some of the jump lips being worn down maybe just a lil touch there as well.


Also while I'm at it can we get a couple of more volunteers to water the track? Its always the same 3 to 4 guys on the 1/8 track. I break so much crap cuz unstuck and still learning that it would be nice to have that few extra minutes to fix stuff. Instead of being the last to check in cuz I'm watering all the time. End rant


Hope to make it Saturday night. lets get back to having fun
