Having run 1/10, SC, and 1/8 on the 1/10th track, I think this is a good idea. Even though I enjoyed running 1/8th on the small track, I felt those marshaling were at greater risk due to the small track and that the 1/10th cars were getting beat up. Plus when I drove 1/10th or SC it was always more fun if I wasn't trying to hear myself think over the cacophony of .21s

Just my 2c.

I agree about nitros running on the 1/10th scale track. But eletric buggies, why not?

I've always driven very carefully, and made clean passes, slowed down when necessary, etc. I have not seen any 1/8th beating up SC or other vehicles.

This is fine though as long as people running 1/8th scale can expect the big track to be watered and have lights on. If you shutdown the big track, you have to allow the 1/8th scale on the small track, even if that means splitting practice sessions.

Ben,

Couldn't agree more! Thanks for reminding me: I forgot but was meaning to say the main (only) reason I run 1/8th on the small track was because the lights were off on the big track Or often when the lights were on, there would be few/no other drivers and few/no people to flip cars. While I was looking forward to practicing on the large track, I didn't mind driving 1/8th on the small track and I found it easy enough to be courteous to the 1/10th drivers.

It would be a shame if the lights stayed off on the big track for practice nights, but 1/8th was not allowed on the small track. I would be all for having both tracks running at the same time and rotating watering from one to the other.

I guess that's 4 cents now. I probably should stop or I will go broke!

Jeff

Good call Jeff.

Default 1/8th scale track?

About how many 1/8th scale cars would I take on a normal practice night to get the lights turned on? or maybe even watered? just wondering. Getting into Nitro and when ever im running my SC i look over and soon as its dark your pretty much toast.. Unless maybe there is a certain night of the week for that practice? idk thanks Cory

I'm in the same boat. Even worse when I bring one of my kids. I'm shuffling between tracks and sometimes the big track gets shut down. Beyond that, biggest issue is no marshalling on the big track. Sometimes you get lucky and someone is out there flipping over cars.

That's been the best two cents of advice I have heard.

If u know u can't make it but u go for it anyway u deserve to walk down three stories to flip ur car over it will teach u some control while learning the track as well! Good luck on the new 1/8 scale lay out it looks dialed from the high way as usual Jeff is got mad skills!
