The track hasn't improved! People don't understand that when it rains there is NO traction - period. We didn't do anything different for this past weekend as far as traction goes, we were just lucky that the rain held up for us. Why does everyone think that we did something different? Jeesh And yes, I do pick on people from time to time because they need it. lol

Speaking of rain.... So far it doesn't look good.

Has the track been resealed? How did you go about covering the painted areas that are now used for the layout? Just curious....

Also, are the current lap times consistent with the layout when it was last used? If I had to guess, most likely not. Just wonder how far off the times are.

Evo,
Laptimes are comparable to the previous layout. I don't recall anyone running 81 laps this early in the season either. It'sall good!

Will the track be race prepped and sauced / traction additive applied on Friday morning, afternoon, evening or Saturday morning?

Default IGT info i guess

Stadium Chris.

The only help i can be is use the taller gears 15-19 set up if possible, the track is huge and that will probably help you.

Other than that it is a group of people that have had the car for less than 2 months and we have had an extreamly limited amount of time on the track due to weather, and parts breakage.

I can't wait to see what the MWS brings as far as information about these cars. Also if anyone has spare parts for the IGT's bring them all for locally parts are very hard to get. If you are a hobbyshop owner that has some of this please bring us some stock parts lol.

So yes bring that 3rd spare spur gear my guess is people will gladly pay well (reasonable) for any needed part that another racer might have. I have many spare parts but not all of them.

My only goal is to actually race for 30 min lol.

Only a couple of more day’s to the start of a new season. Let’s hope the weather holds out. I’m looking forward to it.
