Eric posted in Reedy thread, ill move to this thread as well.

 

New asphalt track layout to come in March.   We'll begin construction March 23rd.  In April, after a few tweaks, you'll start seeing berms and candy cane striping to mark apexs.

 

Just you wait...

The angle and the radii of the actual kerb from racing surface to face of kerb... then from the face to the top edge also has a nice big transition and not sharp. It is right for 1/10 scale and you can get a couple wheels on them without upsetting the car a bunch. The ones with abrupt transitions and steep faces can upset your suspension and lead to other less desired behaviors like aerial acrobatics, cars shooting out into traffic, and ultimately broken parts and sadness

To give you an idea of why the Tamiya kerbs rock. We have run many "less than awesome" chassis designs there over the years including some like mini with a high center of gravity. You can rail the sweeper after the straight, accidentally blow your line, and still drive off of it without too much drama. It is the ability the safely drive off of them with your suspension loaded in an off-camber fashion over and over that makes driving the track a dream. You try to even look at steeper or angled transition kerbing funny in the same scenario, and your car is flipping without a doubt.

I actually took a bunch of recon pics last year at the nats on my phone I'll post 'em up in another thread when I get a few. The only thing I failed on was taking rulers and angle gauges I know that when Jan and Aron first built NorCal, the original plan we talked about was to copy the Tamiya kerbs. I recall Hicks actually cutting a cardboard or paper template though I am sure it is long gone.

Also known as "kerbs" (or "curbs" here in the states).

Here's a pic of them at Ripon

And the best kerbs in the business at the Tamiya track

I'm sorry it worked out that the off road guys missed a race day at NorCal but Eric and Kev did the right thing. Turn out was a little low on the carpet yesterday but everyone that didn't make it missed a great day of racing! Daryl White got his first pole position, and my Rebel made me look better than I am. Next week is Carpet Madness don't miss another fun race.
