When did you send it? If it was not long ago I would wait for him to reply. If it was a while ago go ahead and send him another one or send it to me and I will bring it to his attention.

He has been more busy than I would ever want to be the past few weeks. We were there until 1am last night and he had to be back at 6am for the asphalt guy.

Default Progress?

Still on schedule for opening next monday, July 13th?

Really looking forward to this facility.

Even though i'm an hour away from any track 'cause i'm in Redondo Beach, another track/facility to choose from is nothing but good for Southern California and this hobby/sport.

Cheers!

I guess I never understood track layouts like this. It limits the layout possiblities. You either get a long track or a short track. Is this really better then using boards like so cal did or some type of barrier like OCRC? I can see the raised slops are easier on the cars then barriers but the thin boards like So Cal had were not hard on cars.

Yes you limit the number of layouts possible, but the positive out weigh that 100 fold. Once you've run a car on a track with curbs like this, you'll understand. Curbs like this are much easier on cars, don't move when they do get hit, and you tend to get more flowing layouts with true radius corners. Plus, just glancing at the image J put up, I can see at least 5 or 6 different combos of corners just on the right side. Personally, I think if you can get 8-12 good layouts out of that, that's all you need. I like it when a layout stays for more than one weekend so you can compare lap times from week to week and work on setup more accurately. Especially with a consistent, permanent indoor surface. If you've got 12 layouts and make one change a month, you've got a whole year before you run on the same layout twice. Running at SoCal, we ended up with a similar layout with one or two boards different week after week.

And I'm really glad they didn't make the track based on a banked oval like SoCal. That was so hard on the cars and really limited the layouts much more than having islands.

I can see well over 30 different layouts with that configuration, as long as there is at least 16 feet between the half moon curves and the large dots at either end of the track so you can both enter and exit the infield there.(hope that makes sense).
