Never been but from the pictures/videos on their website, I'm bringing Cityblocks, probably soft and supersoft. It looks pretty loamy. Anyone know anything about the track?

Have been told that it should be pretty smooth but loomy all over. Citiblocks and/or ibeams. Things are starting to warm up in CA so I would say both soft and super soft compounds. Of course SS for the morning round and possibly of you have a late main

last time i was there was 2 years ago. Very loamy and will really blow out. Soft Cityblocks will be the hot ticket. It will likely to to hot for Supersoft. Ibeams would work well if you get into the fluff.

The plan is that it's going to be packed this time. I still expect it to blow out maybe not so much this time. In all the times I've ran there the big pins have worked best. I-beam and Crossbrace in SS. If the track packs down as much as their 1/10th scale track is then bring the gridiorns out. Impacts on the hard packed there will probably rotate too much. Cityblocks would be too tall, maybe a stiff compound would work. If it's packed ill run soft grids, if it's loamy i'll run soft crossbraces for the main. Temp pending.

Thanks to everyone...I went ahead and bought a set of S Crossbraces, but just in case I have S Impacts, S Gridirons and M3 Snipers..

How is the layout? Is this the layout Joey put in a while back.

I have heard the race will be run on the big 1/5 scale track,real wide and very flat. Any pics of the current layout would be great.

Called the owner and he said they have been working on the track this week, making more jumps/steeper lips for 8th scale. Not sure if its a complete track change.

well, if anything like last time "Larry" doesnt like 1/8 scales.....
(not sure if any solid truth to that? but what i was "Told")
but 1/8 scales are "Allowed to Practice there" but not "Race"
so more than "Likely" like the last time
will be run on the 1/10 scale track that has the "Oval"
with the track on the Inside of the Oval.....
but i think they will take the "Oval" out.......
(Hope so this is the Off-Road Capital !! not Oval..?????)
they "DID" keep the Oval intact last time but moved a few pipes but it was kinda "Flat" still was fun,did not race went to "Watch"

i was told "Oval" is the "Wave of the Future" here in Southern California?...so it's pretty big there for the Baja's......

but the "Baja's Guys"
dont like there track messed up,so might have to run on the smaller track.....
even in practice?
since they dont "Allow" 1/8 scale races there,
they kinda "Frown" if an 1/8 scale goes on the Big track.....
i do not know if it is "True" anymore but was when we used to go there.........

but
i am wondering? last 3 times there was "Suposed to be a 1/8 scale race"
they never happened?? cause a "Big Motorcycle event" was going on at the same time?
(Not Hearsay "It Happened")
last JBRL there was no "Event" so went off with out a hitch.....
regualr Motorcycle park day...August 2009
so it will go on as Schedualed??? i hope so....???
there is No mention on the Milestome R/C site? except this "Tiny" parts says:

JBRL Nitro june 11th

cause practice is ok, and fun once in awhile...but
"I Wanna Race".....
i mean Jimmy wont let us down?? he's the MAN !!!!

tires that work there "I-Beams" and Losi Eclipse work pretty good there in Buggy, since more than "Likely may be run Pretty WET"
truggy City Blocks were a good tire there as well as the "GridIrons"

like to point out, not a Flame on Milestone"
just what i Understand and have "Experianced There"
nice place to go to if you just wanna practice.....
but Racing is Fun, it's why we do it....
i am sure Larry will come through, but i was told much Differently.
everytime i talked to him seemed "Level" but was pretty Biased towards the "Baja's"
but for such a cool track well i should say "Tracks" it's just Odd 1/8 scales are not allowed to race there....?????? they can "Practice"
1/10 scale Short Course have a race program and 1/5 scale Baja's...but no "1/8 Scale"......

so i really like to see the race and maybe go if it happens !!!
nice place to hang out....
but for sure bring your own pit tables !!!!
and if you have a "Portable Generator" strongly advise it !!!!!
cause only pits for like 30-40 people and only Generator power.
so bring power strips and extra cords......

Its not that 1/8th cant race there..They just dont get enough to race for any class....I go there all the time...Larry is a 1/4 scale guy....That big track has plenty of space for passing.....longest straight I have been on in some time....I love loamy tracks!!! He siffted out all the rocks....U are constanly on the gas there which I love....good place to run,It has so much potential to be a much better track....We will have fun guys

Just to let everyone know, the Milestone track was great. Pit lane sucked, but the track was really fun and held up very well. Job well done, Milestone crew.

I practice at Milestone every weekend, and there are a couple things to watch out for. The track dries out fairly quickly but if the race is on the 1/5 scale track there is plenty of loam and good traction. the wind can kick up because of the river next to the track. I've had a truggy catch the wind and flip off the top of jumps. The track can get rutted up and corners sometimes break down. besides that the track is wonderful. great areas for passing, a back stretch that never ends.There is a wicked risk reward jump on the front stretch. just long enough to make it dangerous to try and clear.

As far as tires, I don't run Aka so I don't know the different tread patterns. i have had the best luck with Proline Calibers

Milestone was awesome this weekend. The track held together well and was alot of fun. The back straight was awesome and motoring people was pretty fun. As for the owner not liking 8th scales, that is a lie. He is a really cool guy and had no problems with any guys that showed up for practice. A raised pit lane would be nice, but other than that nothing was wrong with the facility.
