Hey Daniel,

I'm driving my 1997 supercharged 2.0L VW Jetta of course. Just to give you an idea of the speeds, I was going in the neighborhood of 100 - 110 when the Ferrari passed me; same with the Nissan.

I still need to do something about my gearing as I am still in third gear going that fast.

as a side note: I will stop by to see whoever may be around in December when i come home for a few weeks.

Sounds like you've been having fun with the full sized cars! Let us know when you'll be out in Dec...maybe we can throw together a race if one isn't already scheduled

This is just to give you guys an idea of what the track is like here. Hopefully the guy taking the video will update with a new one soon as he has been filming a lot lately.

Hangar 30 4/25/12 1/12 13.5 NR - YouTube

The white pieces are 2.5 or 3 inch square fence posts with blocks of wood to join them as couplers and then velcro'd down to the carpet. The dots are Losi mini dots with velcro on the bottom edges. Works pretty good until the beginner class gets out there, then it is shear chaos.
