That's a really, really deep cut inflicted right there. I can take the "ahas", the swipe about the shirt, but this is totally different. It's on now Mr. !!!

Not yet, Haven't had a chance, been busy with the store lately, rushing to get it ready by Friday !
I believe Leo already talked to Maxy regarding the sponsored race but don't know if it is for SVM speedway.

AS you can see im not that great with MS PAINT. This is the kind of chicane Im talking about, I think it will make it more of a drivers track and strain the motors less, I also think it would make it more interesting too.

I think if they can make a chicane like that it would be awsome!!!

Glad to see someone agrees with me, LOL. It shouldnt take much, maybe a few old tires and a few peices of PVC pipe, or even just 2x4s. Its there going to be racing this weekend? If its just practice I might show up with my 1/8th.

Look like it is doiiiiiiiiible....... looks like it would feel a lot like revealation. right after the bend you do not not have much straight to get to the sweeper. you will not be able to stretch the 2nd gear. maybe half a second on second gear. and then you going to run into second gear in the infield as you see the infield are also big. just my 2 cents.

I think theres plenty of straight to hit 2nd gear after that chicane to me, plus the sweeper is pretty long.

I don't know if you guys at SVM already contacted the rc pro series but why don't you let them run one event over at this track. They know what they are doing can help with a possible lay out.

From what I heard, Pro Series was considering SV as one of the tracks. But it didn't happen.
