some fun slow motion video in the big dented hairpin.

*music is added way later than the video is created, so the video/music sync isn't very well matched, mute if you don't like...

Right you are ABR.   It's looking like mother nature might let loose tomorrow afternoon.   In light of this, we'll start qualifying at 10:00am.

 As Jake points out, Kevin said wet, and that's what well do.  It's his track.   Last week there were some delays, sorry about that, very unusual.   We'll water every 4 rounds or so, at least mid round, and try to be consistant when we do it.   That way you'll know what to expect when your heat is up.

It was stated through Eric that KJ said it would be run wet! Not dry! even though Mother Nature and scheduling take over the conditions of what is stated. Why is there not a track maintenance person?

Only asking how is going to be run.. thats all  I dont care if its wet or dry.. if its supposed to be wet  then at least water once half way through the round.

 

that way we can aniticipate the traction..   If I know only between rounds and I was in race #9  then Id anticipate dry setup   if and when it gets watered stick wuth that..throughout the day.

Guys that were qualifying in the dry track quals the ended up in a lower main which will be run on w wetter track  screws every one up.

 

No bodys complaining   just want to know..  thats all.

I don't think folks are complaining about it not being wet, not being dry, etc... I think Steve's point/question is valid going forward, on how the track is intended to be run. Setups for sticky wet, dusty dry, and kings traction insanity are all rather different on a lot of vehicles. I don't think anybody expects outdoors to be exactly the same every day, round, or even heat...but a general "it should be something like this" helps.

Thank you to all the others that helped get us going again last Saturday.

You can't expect an outdoor track to come close to holding moisture like an indoor track. It's mostly the water evaperating than soaking with the sun on it. It was watered to help break it in, and there was only time between rounds, cause we all were there to race. Only way for it to be watered in between heats is to have a dedicated track guy. On top of that, it takes up way more time doing every heat, and it was a tight schedule, because of the computer issues. Sometimes you just have to have fun and race. Think of all the possibilities that could happen when racing outdoor.

Steve,

The track was watered before each round, but it soaked it up pretty quickly. The track was so wet before the rookie main that I had 1/2" of clay stuck to my shoes before the race even started. By the time 4wd SCT started the track was bone dry again. I'd plan on DRY for a while until the track starts holding moisture.

I'm not complaining, just starting the facts.

Are you guys going to run the outdoor track dry again like last week?  

 

Nobody watered between heats and the track was bone dry by the time race heat 6 came around all, the way to the end of the heats and was only watered between rounds. Smoked two sets of rears thinking it was going to be run wet.

 

 

 Just working on my cars setup to run wet or dry.  thanks

Gary, Johnathan Hernandez is the guy to talk to. I've always had good luck running Drake's standard setup off the TLR site.

The older I get the faster I used to be.

I wanted to give Eric and Josh Close a big thumbs up for working through the issues with the lap counting system last weekend. Also thanks to Jon, Shaun and anyone else that helped get the track ready for the race.
