2.0 ENGINE RULES
2.1 The maximum displacement allowed is:
STC or GT: (23cc), 4WD: (26cc), and F1 (26cc). Engines can be modified but must be within specified “cc” limit.

Default new layout

Marcos, we both now Jimmy very well. He is something special. Joel is down to earth also. Thank you both, Jim and Joel for helping Wagner do upgrades. The layout looks more technical. Very Kool. Control and finesse looks like the key. I love it. Grate Job!! But we all must thank Marcos and his family and the Jersey crew for making all of this happen for us grown boys to play with big toys.

Happy New Year everyone
can't wait for 2016

Thank you guys and Happy New Year to all of you up there....as for Jimmy, if I let him, he will PAY FOR ALL THE EXPENSES AT THE TRACK!!!! the man is crazy (please don't tell him ).

Again, it is amazing what a few bucks and a few hours of work can do.
Today I ordered (8) gallons of the Sherwin Williams asphalt paint and will have it tinted in a very cool green . I was able to manage a deal for about 20 bucks a gallon (50% savings!!!). In the next few weeks will be fabricating a steel PC table in my garage and bring to the track to cemented in the ground. The existing table keeps getting pushed around by the kids when nobody is around.

Need to put this in the Largescale section so it can easily be found by the 5th scale audience.
