Hey Senna555
Thanks for the Pics. Looks like a very nice track
Drivers stand is nice to. Seem like drivers will be able to have a good view.
What will the track be sprayed with for added traction?
Keep up the good work..

Can Jamie or anyone who has made the journey b4 say what's the quickest route to the track coming from NY. Mapquest takes Exit 25 off the 91 onto CT-2, while MSN.live takes Exit 29 to get to I-384.

Both routes are about the same distance, but I know one just might have more local roads than the other, which will be a longer time.

after the race yesterday I had to go to Hartford, which is the same direction as going back to NY

My GPS took me the 384/Route 6 way. Although some traffic lights, nothing was bad at all.

Default electric on this great track?!?

Having seen the level of aggravation some had with things like engines (my son), two speeds (me),...

I was thinking of getting my 235 MM onroad electric pan car ready for this weekend (6 cell with a 4.5 brushless I have hanging around) and see how it stacks up speed-wise on this great track.

I was thinking about a pair of lithium ion batteries in parallel, combined with a brushless motor means ZERO maintenance/aggravation.

I agree that Nitro is great, but I don't have the time during the week to do the necessary maintenance.

Lol, it's a first but I actually overslept. I'll be sure to make it up there in the near future.

NERCAR and Kenney Ives would like to thank everyone who raced this weekend once again. Kenney would like you to know that your ideas on how to make this location the premire facility in the north east are being taken very seriously.
See you all at the regionals.
Andrew

Looking for some feedback....constructive criticism is welcome.

As Andrew mentioned you have an open ear with Ken. He would really like to take the facility to the next level.

Hope to hear from everyone that attended the race.

Cheers

Jamie

That is the plan! Ken should have some IGT cars in soon in the Kawasaki Dealership.

Great,fun, low cost class.

Default Test and tune

Track is still setup and will be available all weekend for testing and tuning.

We plan on spraying the track on Sunday but if their is a demand it can also be done on Saturday.

Ken will be enforcing a 10am engine start time from this point forward.

You are welcome to come down as early as you like but "PLEASE" do not start your vehicles prior to 10am.

Default Nice Track

Nice work guy's just which it was closer for me (2hr ride). I wish our local track could take points from you and see how to really SETUP and RUN a track.

If time permits I will be there before the end of the season.

Good Luck!!
