Joe is always down for new layouts. You can screen grab an aerial picture of the lot and mspaint on that. But there are some features of the lot you need to work around, primarily the storm drain.

At this point in time I'm ready to throw money at the situation if it'll alleviate my frustration. It's an emotional rollercoaster to have a well handling VTA car and a crappy F1

But truth be told, I just don't know what I'm doing with that car. Mark said he believes the chassis to be fast, so I'm all about listening and learning. If we can't make it work I'll switch to something else.

We can make just about any car work but if the goal is to have a consistantly dialed car regardless of wallet impact, the easiest route is to run the same chassis as one of the more experienced guys and copy the setup.

If your interested in the easy path I am currently running a tamiya f104wgp but any of the tamita t-bar cars would be comparable with the right tuning parts. Ed and Marcos are using f104x1 cars and doug has a regular f104, the setups are interchangeable when track ready.

Marks right. you saw how my "regular" f104 did and that was box stock up until last week. Although I bent the steering links 2 weeks ago. Now i have the upgrades and its still pretty fast. It would be the easiest route to go. Come to the dark side luke, i mean adam

Getting conflicting information on bodies allowed for scale spec. What is allowed? I'm seeing any body that isn't a GT body...all over the board really. Realistic scale bodies is what I'm going with from the website. I just don't want to run into problems at other tracks.
