That track is larger so I can see the e-buggy working there. Only two classes? Are the classes split up or all together?

Jimmy do you like that high bite clay? GS Hobby has it and it's wicked fast and easy to take care of.

Yes the hard pack clay is awesome and actually tire wear isn't that bad if it stays damp and traction is awesome we run usually super soft compound , I usually run ss aka typos and there hooked up

The big classes there is ebuggy and 4wd buggy , usually only like 3 or 4 4wd sct trucks show up last weekend there wasn't any and there was 4 of 5 2wd buggy , there track is roughly 100x50 I'm not sure of the size of your track so I'm not sure how ebuggys would do there

We wont run any 1/8 scale or 4wd SC. Looks like we will stick with 2wd Buggy, 2wd Short course, 4wd buggy.

That's a good plan. They use that surface at the Warehouse Track and you can run the same slick tires till the foam pops. That's about 2,000 laps on barcodes. May not seem long enough if you do a lot of 400 lap practice sessions every week. Track does crack bad if you let it dry out completely. Some sugar and water or cheap soda pop bring traction to velcro level.

Yes Sir, that GS track is quick. Squirt and turn! It does require fast reflexes. If I blink I overshoot the apex. Not so quick these days.

#ProlinePrimes, it's nice pulling your buggy off and it still being spotless clean. Consistent fast track. If you're available come to Wingo Kentucky for the February fallout race. Should be a lot of fun plus insight on what some Arkansas guys will be running.
