Good to see you all again!
Here are two designs I worked on last night. The second lane from the top needs to be kept open fyi. Can't think of any other way to get to the back lane unless we do a cross-over. We can add the jumps where ever. Lmk what you guys think. Keep them designs coming in

howzit from maui. I am not familiar with those jump over area. Is it safe from someone say crashing while trying to go over the jump and the crash car landing in the way of the car going straight?

I went to the track on Sunday and got some input from the racers. It seemed that many guys don't want the crossover (bent pipes, breakage). I also ran the track, and found that we need the 12' lanes for the perimeter lane. I redesigned it with that in mind, G's lane at 12' also, and the back lane as 15'. In order to make use of the limited space, I had make use of G's lane. The pipes can be moved around easily to convert the track. Table top area should have spaces on the sides so the cars won't fall into the other lane and ease/safety for the turn marshals. Infield lanes are set at 10'. The jump areas are up for grabs, up to you guys. Lmk how you guys like this layout.

Inpuressa, in my opinion the last drawing that you drew up seems to make the most sense so far, it maximizes the space while keeping most of the existing layout intact with only a little bit of rerouting.

I have a design i drew up this week. Just need to find a way to post it here. Im digging the last one submitted and would like to see what everyone thinks of running the track clockwise? Will help a ton for the nitros refueling. And a different challenge then what we have been running for a while. Also are the track measurements 75x110?

Also note with the design i just posted up that all lanes will be 15 feet wide all around the track based on the 75x110 size of the track area.

Whats up guyz, as you may have heard/not heard, that Hawaiian Homes came down on us this past month, so we had to do some clean up and shaping up to our track, to comply with HH terms, so having said that if you wasnt at the past two races, heres the deal. The track redo is off till further notice, but the championship race is still on, if and when we find out from HH if what we did was good enough, then i will make the announcement. We will finish the race season on the track as is. To those with input and ideas discussed, October is here gang whats da scoops? If you guys still down, we can focus efforts into the event itself, now that the redo is out. Let me know what you come up with. Tanx G
