we hit it enough like " JASON" and the pipe

will soon disappear lol
But seriuosly how about taking thin piece
maybe 1/4 inch plywood strarting about five feet before pole and attach then with slight angle cover and attach at other end makig a smooth transistion and cover if you hit you hopefully will glance off with little or no damage

I think that section of the track will be reconfigured to how it was originally designed. It's the best solution and it will help all of the classes.

Bingo !


Basicly a rolling hilly thing into a spine or crest, Carry speed in but the challenge comes from slowing for a nice downslope on the spine.

RCHR used to have like 2 of them.

im with suckpinto... leave it alone... a double roller is just gonna slow things down... id rather sacrifice a few arms then change it... or should I say t plates... just fix the takeoff closer to the corregated pipe so you dont have to be so close to the wall during the race... all it needs is to be built up a lil...
