steve, what part of the site will you be using for this event.
The west side of the complex,steve, what part of the site will you be using for this event.
I disagree. My opinion on course elements like that, which would require a downshift back to first gear, are incredibly annoying. Though there is not much steve can do to avoid that given the space he has to work with.i think it be sweet if you add a pivot cone where each car has to do a 180 around the cone to continue across the course.
Well, if I run it in reverse, coming back to where I designed it to start with that "V" you could have to downshift into first, instead, going off of the starting line in first, and after going around that cone, you can easily hit 2nd gear and still go through those two 90* turns in most car's mid-range, I try to avoid designing a course to where cars have to downshift into first, since some cars don't have first gear syncro's.Course looks ok overall. I'm actually looking at it and thinking it might run nice reverse of how you have it now...
I've done cross overs before, they're fun, the new timing system allows us to have two cars on the course at the same time, the only problem you run into is that I don't like having cars come too close to each other, but with this course design that I have, I can send a car out when the other car gets to close to finishing, maybe on the 2nd to last slalom cone or something.yeah, I noticed that...
Do you plan on trying to have more than one car on course at a time?
How do you feel about the course crossing over on itself?
even though I wont be in attendance, I have an idea for a course based off your initial layout... I can email it to you. PM me.
SteveO seems to have put some hard work into making this happen and be a fun event.
Best of luck and crossing fingers there is good (dry) weather for you all.
I actually have another commitment the first saturday of each month so I won't be out there this time.
Thanks guys for the good words!Course looks fun either way you decide to run it. I'm doing my best to be able to make it out there and looking forward to having some fun. Since I'll be on R-Comps it looks like I'll be in the modified run group.
I met up with Steve at the last roadster meet at Wing House and he's a nice guy and it looks like he has put a lot of work into this event. I really hope the weather is nice for it.
