same goes with roadrail!! 6 to one/ half dozen to the other. only prob with roadrail is if it not secured properly It flys all into lanes

Launch Rail System! LMAO!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!

That shall be my new official name for the Road Rail/Road Dome System. The Launch Rail System! LOL

It is very entertaining to watch the Novices go out on a track built with the Launch Rail System.

I think Ramp Rails would be a better name. Although I don't mind them usually. As long as they secure them to the track they're fine. It's when they're laying in the middle of the racing line that they suck.

We use those at the track I run at. Nothing like clearing the double in a onroad race.

say what ya want I still think it's better then running on a firehose track with no transponder system. The quote from the day I was at that track was " Guys !!! We have to change the track! we cant count the cars...... your to fast !" plus the place that was holding the race treated you like some kind of thief. "NO you cant use the restroom go to wallmart" (what a jasckass). So Jon, Randy,and cornerspeed dont forget the roots you 3 came from and how hard other track promoters are trying to make everyone happy. If corona and or LM would happen to be gone because peeps dont like roadrail what would be left??? socal ?????????

Cant see spending thousands on this hobby then have no place to run

I'm not sure where that came from. I'm not complaining about them at all. Read my post. I said I don't mind them. And I've never been anything but grateful for the places we do have to race.

My roots are in Discount Hobby Warehouse..

I don't mind road rails if they are secured, but it seems that they never are at the parking lot races, and I hate being punished because the person in front of me hits them...

Perhaps the only thing worse would be a "Road Gooch"

... I wonder what kind of noise those make when they get run over by a sedan....?
