That's the plan since I haven't found anything for the XB2 yet.

There will be 10 Ft landing zones for every jump.

Thanks. I think that will help depending on the size of the jump.

Please be patient it wont be long and We will update with pictures as soon as we can but for now you have to wait. See you all very soon

Is anyone else getting excited every time WindyCityRC posts? When I see that as last poster on the thread I itch thinking that it's the announcement of the track opening again.

:-)

I can't wait to see the new facility.

^^^^What he said^^^^

It is coming along nicely and it will be great!! Lots of hard work and thought being put in by a very dedicated crew of guys!!

As a newish, newbie...() just over a year into all this again, it is amazing what the owner and facility are doing and has done. The time, dedication and not to mention the $$$ put into both facilities, old and new is awesome.

My son and I feel very fortunate to have meet so many great people (we all have our off days....) Racers from far and near with different ideas and approaches to things has helped us grow to be better drivers.

Thanks to everyone far and near and especially the Windy City Crew!!

I'm sure it is going to be a beautiful place and eagerly await your reopening. For those hard core racers that seem to want to be "at the track" everyday, maybe you should have a new section with Capsule hotel rooms like they have in Japan - 4' x 4' x 7' sleeping quarters double stacked on top of each other. )))

It's been a few days. How's the build going? Did the building do the things you needed it to do to continue the build?
