Default Hulacross @ KRP 2-11-12

Howdy, newb just here from Alaska.

Saw on FB KRP is hosting the first event of the year, was wondering if there will be beater rentals available? Haven't bought a car for it yet but am excited to try it out.

Is there any place people hang out, or a garage that supports the sport? Or a forum that has a bit more traffic? I don't know anybody on the island.

I've had a little autox, rallyx, ice racing and wheel to wheel experience, I'd post some vids but my post count is too low. Search youtube for 'kbeefy' if your interested.

Hi kbeefy, sorry I missed this...we don't have any beaters for rent at the moment. At this point there's not alot of places to hang out specifically for KRP events.

We'll be completly renovating the entire forums soon, by the way, so hopefully some more traffic will be coming soon.

Thanks for the reply. Doesn't look like I'll be able to source a car by the weekend but hopefully I'll be there to watch. My wife sent my helmet last friday but it hasn't arrived yet, maybe tommorow.

Strange that with so many people on this Island theres not that much traffic on an automotive forum. (traffic.... bad pun lol)

I got to watch the practice, but had to leave @ 7 to pick up family at the airport. Do the tracks typically have those kicker jumps that were breaking everything, or was that just for the motocross? That'll change the vehicle setup drastically....

Kbeefy, I just communicated with you on the other forum. As Archangel said, this one has not been too busy and best if you post on the other forum or on KRP's facebook page.

I have participated in full seasons of Hula X and Rally X and have participated in the Sand Drags on several occassions so I am familar with all the races held at KRP. I also do Auto X if you are interested. There is a driver's meeting on Sunday at KRP that I would suggest you attend if plan to Hula X. I saw your wheel to wheel vid's on asphalt and think you may be interested in the Hula X. It's the only wheel to wheel action you will legally get on the island.

You may see some pictures of my WRX. Yes, we get some air that has been challenging our cars. I just replaced my motor mounts this past month and have a couple of dead struts. We can discuss this further. I should be in a Blue Subaru WRX on Sunday so it should be easy to spot (look for all the "rubbing").

Hope to meet you soon.

Looking forward to meeting some people saturday and/or sunday.

The jumps were waaaay to high in the beginning. A design mistake on our part as we were just trying to keep the speeds down, It was a bit drastic...you won't be seeing jumps like that again.

Come out on Sunday and learn more...thanks man!

Checked things out today, track was alot more managable. I've pretty much given up on building a car, the jumps are just a bit to abrupt. Some tabletops would make things alot less abusive, but also promote faster speeds so I understand.

Check this out... in AK the 'Tuff Truck' competition is very similar to Hulacross.
