"Monster" Jump

I would say that MustGoFaster knows best about clearing this one. giver hard until 2/3 up the carpet and then let off the throttle. that's it. if you don't your but will be pointing down and you'll have to slam the break to correct your angle in the air.

I would think you would not be able to set-up for the sharp left after the last jump.

I think it is very do'able, especailly in a 4wd (xxx4's make great lawn darts ). But that corner will need to be cleaned up a bit.

Weather looks FANTASTIC for Sunday

I drove the track for about 2.5 hrs last night and here are my first impressions...

I used my T4 Factory Team with a 15T Double P94 and 3300 0r 3500 NiMHs 19T/87Tspur Holeshots on rear and worn Losi's on the front

I loved the track Very much a drivers track as some parts are narrow and hard to navigate quickly. Lots of 180's and only 2 high speed sweeper the main running line was very rough and rutted. A couple turns were bombed out with mud holes but that will be fixed i'm sure once it gets wet again. The trucks were handling the ruts better than the cars least it looked that way too me. My one run with my RC10 buggy was fun but after about 5 laps i destroyed a new servo. It was just a little rough on it but the T4 ran great...didnt miss a beat the whole day.

The main large jump was wicked. My first time over i figured i'd need to hold the throttle open to keep the nose up...Big mistake I almost did a blackflip Once you get the speed judged right you can sail over nice...not too fast mind you or you'll hit hard after the landing ramp...

The triple can be made 2, 1 easily if judged right. I was mostly taking it in 3 jumps since the few times i tried a 2,1 50% of the time I'd hit the top of the 2nd jump and flip the truck hard and since there werent spotters much it was too much running around for my lazyness

I loved the wide main straight which wasnt a prob for most guys to run full speed down. The breaking zone was a little slick but not too bad. The hard surface was hard on the soft tires i was running...The first set of almost done softs i put on were bald in about 10 laps...the new set look about 25% worn after say 50 laps just a guess...

The two tier driver stand worked well except that its a longer walk to get a flipped car if youre on the bottom If the lower level drivers stand back from the railing, the upper level drivers can see the main jump better.

I think I'll gear a little lower next time as i wasnt touching the throttle much in the slow sections and was barely getting to full speed on the straight. But that said I havent tried tuning my slipper much or my current limiters yet so i've got lots to try the next time out.

Big thanks to the builders of this track it was a blast from start to finish

Superfly - Thanks for the feedback. I will pass it on to the other members of the track committee.

The entire track surface will receive grooming before this Sunday's big race.

During race day on the lower tier of the drivers stand there is a rope that will be strung across from the 3rd spindle which will act as a guide for drivers not to pass in order for them not to obstruct the sight line of the drivers on the top tier.
