I think it is the same one you ran on, but I don't remember many people breaking on that jump...

I did break on it once, but that was on an incomplete backflip after sucessfully completing 2...

Default Monday 05/15 New Track

The new track is completely different, no big jumps, no killer whoop ( just a small one ), very fast with long sweepers. A 24 sec hot lap for stock drivers.

Once again, Slim more than redeemed himself.

lol... It wasn't really the track layout that was killing me on the last one... It was the fact I ran a brand new set of tires 4 times and after they looked like they had been run for 2 weekends...

The track was very dry and like sandpaper... Ran em for about 3 or 4 practice packs and then 1 qualifier and they were about 50% tread left...

Thats what happens when a track starts to blue groove up like so. Eventually, if they left a track there for a month or two, the fast setup would be bald tires like many other indoor blue-groove tracks in the U.S.

You race offroad and are happy about NO BIG JUMPS!!! Sounds like a dirt on road track if you ask me. Although I haven't seen it myself and are only going off of what you described. Sounds like a European layout to me. Guess we'll see Sunday!

Default Let me clear that up, Nuttie

I like big jumps. I love to jump. I can jump well. The new track has enough jumps to keep it interesting. No one will think that it was meant for rally cars.

The only thing about the last track that I didn't like was the whoop. About 2 out of 10 times my buggy would land off balance.

The part about Slim redeeming himself ? Mainly because the last track lasted one whole month.

He also got hurt so hes been out of commision for awhile. Makes you appreciate him when you see what happens if he's not 100%.

Apparently he's got his own name on here now.

Slim. Show yourself playa!

He didn't know about this thread the last time I talked to him about RCTech. Don't know if hes on here, but I did tell him about it...
