May be back down this weekend, have a couple other outdoor tracks were planning to hit up, but if the weather is bad (and it doesnt look good) I look forward to coming back, Also look forward to spending alot of time there this winter! cant wait for the 4x4 slash to come out, i'll be getting one right away, and hoping there's enough of them to run there too.

Chris said the writing was tough to read and he was in a hurry to get everything in so you then became Isooc. I mentioned it to him tonight and he said he is going to get it changed.

I think the 4x4 Slash will have enough of them to race in a short period of time so I'm sure you won't have anything to worry about.

Me too. I should know for sure in a couple weeks.

If they win this Sunday then they will be in the playoffs next weekend. Is it wrong of me to hope they lose?

Its all about control haha. I'm still learning.
Next time you have a problem, just come upstairs down by the drivers stand door. A bunch of that pit down there would help out. Heck i had a Y.R. 4000 pack just sitting there not being used.

So what did everyone think of the layout this past week? From what I heard everyone seemed to like it.. I was wandering if I should try to keep it the same or change it up a little. Let me know!

The layout that we ran on tuesday was awesome to say the least. If that was the layout used last week too then I say keep it. The vertical skateboard style jump and the back jumps were awesome, even for a elec n00b like myself lol

Bob I would try to keep in very close to the same because I didn't hear anyone that didn't like that layout. I don't think we need to change it every week and especially when we get one racers like.

Its hard to see if you improve any if the layout is always different. I think we should change it once a month like alot of the touring car tracks do. Then we can test are cars each week to see if where getting better setups or not.
