Track opens at 2pm like normal.

As for the layout, I kind of like it like this. Everyone thinks that this "ruins" the flow, where I view it as just a change to the flow. Slow sections are good to mix in, it keeps people on their toes.

Just a suggestion Steve try hitting the berm a different way. Before we were hitting it to carry speed through it. Now I'm hitting that thing faster then I did the old way. This time I'm hitting it as more of a brake it actually catches my car. As for flow I thought the flow was better. Before we were launching a huge jump that you hit as fast as you could then into 2 small timing doubles. To me the flow of the 3 jumps together is more in rhythm. The key is to not carry to much speed over that roller. I come of the berm blimp the throttle then hard on the brakes. When I get greedy and try to blip it a little too hard I get air over the roller and I flat land the table. Also the old way there really was no option for the sportsman and slashes. Now they can land on the top of the table pretty easily.

Hey Rob the speedo in the is now working fine,
I think I may have gotten simplegreen in it when I cleaned the truck turned on fine yesterday, so if the new comes in and someone else needs it sell it.
