Default WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE "THE FORT" TRACK CHANGED?

If you race at the "FORT" do you think we need to change the track a little to slow it down?
We have been told by ROAR the track is too fast for 1/8 scale to hold a ROAR Nationals.
Changes would be made near the start/finish line and in front of the drivers stand.
Pit road would also be smaller.

Let us know what you think.

place your name [not your on line name] here yes or no.

Jim

I for one would like to see a change. I have seen this track change before and IMHO it got ever better with the challenges and changes. If there isn't a change I suppose we would not be able to host a nationals which would be a pitty. Local businesses who would see to our guess would loose out of the money generated by hosting such a spectular event. Not only that, there are LOCALS who do not have the financial backing to travel across the country would also miss out on a possiblity to attend a national event.

I believe the change should be mandatory however the design changes should be put to a vote. It's a track we can adapt.

If it restrict your ability to bid and hold events I think a change makes sense.

Perhaps you can design changes to go between a new and old layout?

HELL NO !!

At least, don't change the layout. I could think of a few improvements that could be done in a couple of areas but the layout is absolutely brilliant.

I don't understand the "too fast" argument. In terms of area, this is one of the smallest tracks 1/8th ever runs on. Any tighter or more technical layout in that space would be impossible to get around. If it's just laptimes they are worried about, just don't spray it. That drops the times about half a second or more.

HELLLLL NOOO!!!

I've been to this track only once, ever since that first time I've been trying to get back, but living in SoCal makes it hard. You couldn't hold the Winternats at any other track, it wouldnt be the same. That track makes you a better driver.
