Might as well start a new thread for this track. This is a by invitation only track. But it's easy to get the invitation.This Sunday I'll take a measurement of the tri-oval track and list the center line. This is a first class track that looks as professional as you would want a track to look . They will in the near future add a road course section in the middle.Presently the three top drivers are turning 3.9-4.1 second laps with the 4 cell 19 turn cars(58 laps T.Q). In Legends the T.Q is 50 laps as is the Spec trucks.
There is plently of power- tables and chairs.It will be a ROAR santioned track real soon so you'll have to be a ROAR member to race and practice.
The tires used(foam only) for the 4 cell class is for starters: Purple fronts and purple rears. Some are using Red fronts. Tires will be available this weekend(Sunday)at the track by someone I'm sure.The computer will also be up and running this Sunday with organized runs starting around 12-1pm.
If you don't know the Carriggs they are some of the nicest people you'll ever run into and they like to race R/C's.You'll also have to put up with the #3 shrine they have.It's a fun afternoon racing with some really good folks.Information about Palm Valley Raceway -directions and phone number can be faxed or e-mailed : just leave a message.

They don't sugar water cement.They run purple front or comb of red and purple and purple rears. You don't need any traction additives.

Don't forget the Darrell Waltrip (cardboard cutout) guarding the cookies & the fridge! :lol: If you've never been in the kitchen,DW will scare the crap out of you as soon as you walk in!! He's done it to me twice last Sunday!! Yes,there's a lot of Earnhardt memorabilia in there that I've never even knew existed! See you all in 2 weeks! I've gotta get this car ready for Tuffy's!

Bullfrog,

So,.....just how does one go about getting an invitation? I bought a Legends car,built it last night,.....just got to get the charger,and some radio gear,.......talked to George last night,he said that there was some really tight racing there! Sounds like fun! A question,....what keeps the plastic from separating from the aluminum on the newer Legends axle hub,in a crash? Inquiring minds want to know. :confused: Thanks!

Joespec - We've got a spot just waiting for you.The new hubs work fine- no problems. You coming out Sunday?Bring your spec Car/truck so we can come up with the rules. Frank will be there with some truck bodies already done.I can bring my loaner Legends for you to race. I would suggest bring your batteries and motor- yours are probably better than what's in the car. You know you can call if you'd like and ask questions.

He also said that the surface preparation was very smooth! Do you take a check for roar membership? If so,...please bring me an application,....and I can join tomorrow. Oh yeah,......good job on the track record! On the oval no less,......LOL,I love it:D

See you tommorrow and I'll have some forms with me and we take checks.
I'm serious about the loaner car - you can take the stuff out of it and use it in yours if you like.

Bullfrog,just curious why is it foams only?Seems like caps would be so much better on 'crete unless its rough surface.Most 'crete tracks i've been on caps last forever.Thanks

Exactly! Caps can be too costly for the average weekend racer to collect a few different compounds-even though they last longer than foams. Plus they can be fickle to different (and sometimes drastic) temp changes throughout the day,such as the temps up here lately! The foams have a bit more consistency,but that all depends on car setup & driving style,too!
