Hey Myron, I know it came up a few threads ago, but not sure an official answer was ever really determined.

On VTA minimum ride height, is it chassis, body including spoiler, body not including spoiler, or where is it measured at?

Can you also possibly list what tech procedures will be happening? I know motor teardown, but what else do we need to be ready for? How about tire tread requirements? I assume we can get our motors teched Friday?

And just cause I am already asking stuff...is there any kind of schedule we are going with this weekend or is it more a play it by ear thing based on how many show up? I only ask as I know some people who plan to watch on ustream/liverc and they are not sure when things will be happening.

Thank you!

I think the layout was going to be very similar or the same as Vegas layout from last year but last I heard he was still building it so everyone can be assured no one has ran laps on it yet...LOL

The layout in the picture was the old layout (being changed today as I understand) and was set to mimic the Snowbirds track for the Thunder Jam pre Snowbirds warmup race.

I heard tales of Myron holding up each piece of track wall and corner dot to his ear, listening for sounds of the ocean, and mumbling, "where would Chuck Norris put me".
