I'm all packed up and ready to go. I'm going to bed early tonight and then head out of NJ around 3-4am. I should roll in to the track around 10-11am. I can't wait! see you guys there

The track is BIG. The triple is HUGE (quick clip below). Not sure about a couple of blind spots and the stand could be higher I think. Traction is excellent. Spent the day trying to figure out my set up (still not there and totally not what I am used to racing on). Broke a few parts on both the RB5 and Lazer SP off that triple. Will post up more pics etc tomorrow and so on...been up for 15 hours...need sleep and the car is still dirty!

Nice write-up. How much was the speeding ticket?

Tough break Steve. Get that lead foot talking to your trigger finger, forget about the ticket and lay down some hot laps in the dirt.

Maybe we can hold a charity race back here at home to cover your fine?

Good luck to you and Johnnyboy,

It will be on http://liverc.rccars.com/ and there is wireless access at the track so I'd expect some kind of coverage.

The track is fun, but challenging. It's big and no matter where you stand on the drivers stand, there is an area that is difficult to see or judge (for me at least) cause it's so far away! It's manageable though and other than inside the big triple there's nothing that's totally blind.

I guess were not going to make it. Doug had emergency eye surgery and will be 'out of commission' for a while.
Good luck to everyone that is there.
