What bodies does everyone use at the track? Is it large or medium sized? It looks large. I'm just trying to figure out what bodies and gear ratio to run. From the site, I know what tires to buy.

Track is 96x42. For sedan, Protoform LTC-R or Protoform Mazdaspeed 6 are good choices depending on the layout.

We find the track is pretty similar to others out there. A lot of our guys were able to take setups from our track to IIC and be competitive with very few changes. At past big races, traction comes up nicely but doesn't tend to get sticky. I'd say medium to medium-high.

I should have been more specific. Probably just 13.5T sedan.

Hi Guys,

How big will each pit space be? I'm bringing a pretty large fleet! Can we rent extra pit space if necessary? If not, would something like this be acceptable?:

Howard, it kind of depends on entries. We have the ability to overflow into an adjacent unit if we need to. We should have plenty of room.

Yep, grabbing the adjacent space for pitting will make things pretty comfortable for everybody. Two extra toilets and a bunch of room to spread out. It's the unit right next door, so walking to the track from there is actually closer than from the pits in the same room as the track in most cases.

We'll also make sure full audio and video of the racing is available in that space. My intention would be to pipe the audio over, and project video on one of the walls.

I've noticed quite a few people go through the signup process but don't pay which keeps the entry from being official. Hopefully these are people that plan to attend.
