No such things as traction issues, just have to drive more carefully :-)

For F1 there can be. The parking lot wouldnít dry for us unless we had sun. It had a new seal coat. Which made for a much smoother surface. But just needed sun to work.

Any official word yet on if the track is being setup? I don't live that far away and the ground outside is pretty wet.

Does that mean next week is a make-up test and tune day or will it be a regular race day?

I had a few more things I forgot to ask:
1. Can mod SC and buggy be used in open offroad?....I know in times past no sc were allowed but that was when sc was open motor so there was already a class to run it in
2. Is open off road split between 4wd and 2wd?
3. Will the off road classes still use a set up where you can drive around the jumps if you want my? Idc how it is done as long as I know ahead of time if i need to "un-slam" my flat track set up kits to take jumps again.

Thanks.

Yes mod sct 2wd and 2wd and 4wd mod buggy with and other stadium truck can run open off-road.
open off road is mixed together.
when I build the track I try to put jumps in where you have a option some times I will
build the track if you take the jumps you May have a little advantage.
Thanks

​​​​​​I am not sure about the SCT. In the passed they were not allowed in open Offroad. I messaged Sean, who runs it, for his take. Just to be safe for you.

4x4 sct and 1/8 can’t run in open off road but if you want to run a 2wd open sct you can. We won’t turn away a person that wants to race,open off road is a good place
for them.
