Hey Steve...

"...I know for a fact that my lap times dropped when I hit those orange dots with my 1/12th car."

I _think_ you mean the other direction LMAO

Truly, I trust Eric and Kevin to get it right with the curbing.  They got history and experience!

Revelation launch pads were individual sheets of metal and lots of fun to race around! They also had exits in their penalty box's. Wish they still had that track.

You are exactly correct, Steve. They need to be curbs not launch pads!! The Tamyia track is like racing in a rain gutter. The orange dots create enough havoc for both touring cars and pan cars. Last Sunday I saw many touring cars roll over when they hit those orange dots and I know for a fact that my lap times dropped when I hit those orange dots with my 1/12th car. Can you cut the course with those orange dots? Yes! But you can also cut the track with berms or launch pads. It is still the responsibility of the race director and for that matter, the other racers to call a track cut. It will also show in the lap time. We do not have to use the orange dots on the asphalt track but the curbing should not be any higher! Race off road if you want launching pads!!!!!

It would be nice if the 1/2 pit-table per driver rule was respected too.

 It would be nice if the new asphalt track be respected not allowing it to be a shortcut or pit space.

should be the best track in the US  ..  curbs can be an inch high  thats all thats needed..  referees for track cutting   and penalties need to be handd out nright away  that sets the tome for cutting.

 if no penalties then ppl will cut.

Figures Art would call out for some wood... nuff said

Hey Steve, did you ever race at Revelation? Their "crop circles" as I called them were pretty great and a nice shallow angle. But people would cut them when the opportunities arose. The one I was thinking of specifically was in the infield and you could jump and clear it consistently and actually get a tick faster lap I agree the orange dots are nice and low but what I have noticed is the lower you make kerbing, the more racers will look for that cheating angle. It is in our nature hehe

The purpose of curbs is to keep the racers honest and to eliminate as many walls as possible that break cars. Re: Less wood. However, these curbs need to be to scale!! The Tamiya track's curbs are way too high! It is not necessary to make them a launching pad! The low, orange discs that we are using on the carpet track are more than high enough. I have seen many a touring car roll over after hitting one of those orange discs. The orange discs also are just high enough to reduce your lap time if you do hit them and you don’t roll over which forces the drivers to stay away to get that perfect lap time. My other concern is cutting into the asphalt to put in jacked up berms which will allow water to seep down into the asphalt and that will be the beginning of the end of the asphalt track. There needs to be a wooden wall separating the back straight from the infield and a perimeter wall to contain the cars but that is really all of the walls you need if the curbs and track are designed properly. If you want berms/launching pads, race off road. Let’s get this right the first time.
