I went by last night and it ooked liek evrything was the same except the rollers as you come on the front straight. Its now a little triple if i remeber correct. I did not run just went by to get some parts. There was no way that i found to get throught that section before cleanly unless it was jsut real slow, The spacing was to funky.

This past weekend there was a heat of Electric 1/10, Novice/Beginner 1/10 gas and a full heat of Expert 1/10 gas. Just in case you wernt there.. The track was O.K. as far as conditions, bumps are to be expected if running so many 8 Scales, IMO. I didnt hear anything on a 1/10 day, would be nice!

the Track was o.k. ?? the track was perfect last Saturday. Considering how many Truggy's and Buggy's were ripping it up the track was in amazing shape even for 10th scale Nitro Truck... Jimmy P did a killer job making this track.

Track was awesome for the JBRL. Held together great. Last year on the old track even use electric guys tore the place up. The new track held together beutifully all day. I think most had a great time. I know I did.

I would love to race there at Revelation Raceway but they do not have a wheelchair accessible drivers stand. Technically they have a little stand to the left of the big drivers stand that is accessible but that stand isn't high enough and therefore vision is obstructed by jumps/obstacles on the track. I'm sure the height of that stand was fine back when that was a flat onroad track but with it being offroad now, you just cant see from that drivers stand.

Back before they moved the offroad track, the wheelchair drivers stand they had setup was dialed, you could see every inch of the track. It just sucks that since they moved the track, I cant race there because I just cant see from the new stand.

considering that the track is groomed once a week,, why not have a 10th and smaller (to include the crt.5,which is gaining popularity ) day/night practice/race ,,,,, that way atleast sub 8th scales can take advantage of the track but in a smooth and virgin condition

since there will be nomore club racing on wednesday,fridays,and sundays ,,, socal raceway R. I. P.

I just ran the new track for the first time last Saturday with 1/10th...I really don't see why you can't run whatever you want on it. It was really smooth -- considering that it IS supposed to be off-road and all. I ran my 4wd mod and a stock truck and neither had any problems with it.

I run/race a mini 18TH scale ,,, and it will only do well if he track is smooth,,,, same as a 10th scale.... I have been on the track when it was smooth and then again the very next day and I can tell you there is a huge difference between the two ,, for both lap times and enjoyability..... not sure if you saw the track sunday but if you were to compare saturdays track condition to sundays im sure you would prefer sundays....

basically I would like to race my mini there

Chris sorry to hear about this. I noticed the same thing when I was watching practice last Thursday. I was standing on the wheel chair access area and I thought hmmm cant see a whole lot. Like you sad ok when it was on-road but not good for the current off-road. You might want to bring this to Dana's attention I'm sure he can accommodate you somehow.

It was pretty nice saturday, especiLly later on. The track stayed a little damp and they didn't have to keep watering it...really smooth. OTOH, my 1/18th stuff will flip over from the smallest imperfections...they almost need a carpet track.

There was some guy out there with a small-ish 4wd truck and it was hauling butt...it looked smaller than a 1/10th truck...like a little truggy.
