The old track was about 200x130, the new track is approximately 160x100. I thought it made for some real close racing in almost every class and no longer do you need 12+ marshals to cover all the hot spots.

I'm not complaining. It looked half the size to me as it seemed there was more than 40 feet on the right side. I did not know measurements. It was an absolute blast though and yes it did make for some really good racing and for me the better I can see my car with my old man eyes the more fun I have. Definately looking forward to racing on it again!

It's a fun track even though it was smaller, not real hard anywhere,smooth flowing, as Trevor said, much easier for marshalls, no killer marshall spots. It will be easy for nites where if there isn't a lot of racers, you do not need 25 marshalls for a race, hell, if the drivers stand was not so high, you could marshall your own car on practice days.

Hey guys/girls..

The photos are finally up from the KBRL race this past weekend, check them out HERE and let me know what you think.

I did not load all of them, if you do not see your truck or buggie, chances are I have a shot of it, just let me know.

The dirt at fear farm seems to be a little different than what we're used to. It has a ton of clay but it's a finer dirt, not as grainy as we're used to in Phoenix. Maybe because it was farm land?? It was so hot during the day that even with all the water they were putting in the track it just wouldn't hold more than 1 race. So tire wear was pretty tough.

But our main was the last race and the track was holding water. I can't believe how well our tires wore once the track was wet. Normally a small pin tire is pretty worn out after a 20 minute main but the tires that I ran, in Losi's softest compound (green), still look almost new. It will be nice to club race and not have to run a big pin tire to make it last.

A bit off topic but what are the tires of choice for the buggy and truck on the 1/10 track?

I've never ran 1/10th buggy at fear farm, but i have run short course. Judging the dirt purely by its looks,

i'd say you best bet would be

Green double D/ 8175 m3 front or

m3 holeshot 1.0 / 8185 m3 front

Truck : m3 holeshot, m3 edge

You could also probably get away with a larger pin tire for longer wear,but will sacrifice some performance.

When the track is wet, almost no wear in my experience. When it starts to dry out, wear is still pretty darn low. When the track is dry, mini-pin tires will start to wear "as normal" (ie, holeshots, etc.).

I've only run DDs on 2wd/4wd buggies and they run well. I've seen Goosebumps and recently Calibers doing well also. For short course, Calibers and Enduros I like a lot.
