Track Report-I had an interesting session on the concrete parking lot as work is now underway renovating the asphalt at Mikes-HobbyShop.com. I used the new transverse shock tower 3-link oval car. I treated the track with 8 lbs of sugar, but I feel this was not enough on the very porous concrete. There was not enough sugar left on the surface to bind up all the dust. I blew the track off well. The car came back to the pit with a white topcoat of dust. I tried several tires on the back and front. I ended up with pink fronts and purple rears. The rear was still too planted in the corners but had great forward traction out of the corner. I had a moderate push. I think I will need a stiffer spring set at the back. I did not have enough time to try the offset pod car.
