Will the indoor off road track be set up tomorrow?

Does norcal have an hourly rate for practice, or is it a flat rate for all day?  I'd like to run a couple packs during my lunch tomorrow.

We tested the holeshot, BK Bar, Taper Pin and Bar Code tires today. The best tire was the Bar Code. Didnt have any switches to try though. Also we where testing out the new outdoor offroad lighting at night with good starting success.

Its a good idea if you run the track dry for those that are think of making the trek to The Cactus Classic in March. It would be good practice.

On Sat. I ran Inside Jobs in the first round, Switches in the 2nd, and BK Bars in the 3rd round and mains.  All had plenty of bite and while there was more wear than holeshots on a wet track, 1 pair of any of them would easily last a full race day in 2wd when running 2 classes.

By the end of race day, we had a black groove on the track. From driving on it, I think it'll work just fine dry, as long as you loosen up the slipper, turn down the brakes (Arluck's advice), and get some bk bars or taper pins in the rear, and taper pins in the front. My tires didn't wear too much on Sat, (even the taper pins) so I think it'll work out just fine.

Thats cool Kevin.  I actually prefer the track dry because of the faster lap times. My BK bars seems to last longer without the sugar.  Traction is still great.

As an FYI we need a little time to afford the expensive  deposit for the street water meter Norcal used to have.  So We are going to be running the track dry until we get the water hookup that is needed to keep the water in the track. We thought about using the buildings water, but EBMUD bills would kill us with the amount of water needed to properly wet the track everyday. we have thought this thru seriously and wont be sugaring the track due to the super high tire wear. The good side is your hole shots will still work if not better and we have found some tires that should last just as long as Hole shots did on a wet track and offer even better bite.

Doh!!  Kevin, would it be possible for Nor-Cal to define a set schedule for when the carpet track will be on-road vs. off-road?
