I wasn't worried. I was hoping I could run my Traxxas Rally.

I asked the other day. Around beginning of September. Sounds like plan both on and off road. I believe I read 50x54.

Good or bad, Facebook is becoming the best way to places to communicate through.

Impact is about 1.5 hours for me and this will be 1 in good traffic, hence why I only show up for practice days occasionally, I can simply get more less frustrating track time in for the time investment than a race day. For an occasional guy like me then carpet is easier than clay as at least you know showing up you will have traction without guessing tires. I miss WCRC.

Impact should be an hour drive for me,but I-80 has construction, so one never knows. I’ve never run clay. Only limited carpet on road. I do have a XRay carpet buggy.

On a track of this size, a 17.5t would feel like a 4.5t. I would think a 21.5t geared around a 4.30ish fdr would be plenty fast.

i think the on road side was 100-110 feet. Off road side was definitely shorter.

Oh, so this is roughly half. That actually will probably fit my lousy driving better, I used to like the small astro track at the original WCRC, my limited driving is just not as sharp on the bigger track like the small tracks from way back in the day. I liked the indoor Time Warp size as well. I watch the nationals races and IFMAR races and think I'd be lucky to be able to see the car in the far ends of the track let alone drive it.
