Ben is right, the track is cool- long laps and pretty consistent surface. Good times to be had by all.

4times- On the current track conditions, we are running about half worn pink taper pins in the rear, with half worn pink 7202's in the front, and half worn pink taper fronts for 4wh. Depending on how they watered the track the night before, we also run New tapers. Pretty safe to say for now though that half pin and up will work just fine.

Ronnie- Come on out. We've got 2 soon to be 3 Team Kyosho drivers at this track, we all live in Indy. Your more then welcome to catch a ride down with us next time your in.

I see a road trip in my near future. Track looks good.

Should be an interesting one as well. I'm 100 miles away and mapquest seems to think it's going to take 2 hours and 45 minutes. I guess I'm going to be driving through a lot of slow speed zones.

Same here. Map quest said 2 hours, taking I-70 over and some back roads down. We took Highway 67 down, took an hour and 20 mins.

They are currently putting in a carpet track right next to the offroad track, indoor. They are only running elec right now, but will run nitro if they get enough of a turnout. They have a very good ventaltion system.
