Dropped in at Talywain today and can confirm that the guys up there have done a sweet job of repairing and relaying the track. It looks pretty much the same as last year but all the whoops,doubles etc are now level and smooth. As for that unpredictable huge double at the far side of the track, well both approach ramp and landing ramp are now level and smooth(Owen cleared it every time with his sc10!!) Oh and for those who didnt like the bumpy straight..I can confirm its is now smoother than a smooth thing!
Well done to all the talywain guys:thumbsup:

Yes we have made the track as easy as possible for you!!!, no nasty bumps or lips in the carpet, we have also profiled the jumps evenly for you!!!!
I know you 1/10th drivers struggle with the skill to find the fast line on a rallyX track.
Maybe next year you will try out big boy racing 1/8th!!!! :p

For the truggy nationals there will be an extra 3 lanes going onto the track of pure dirt/grass and some big air jumps!!!!!:thumbsup:
All the stuff 1/10 drivers don't like!!!!:p

me too, one thing is tho. The 8th 's actually have to go round the track and not just drive over those track markers like usual:p hahaha

I do believe I read a challenge on lap times!!!!!!!
OK We will be having a few club sundays of which you will be all invited!! Who ever sets the fastest electric time using the full track not the girly half track you electric folks enjoy:wub. I will then lend you my RC8B with it's RB worlds engine!!! So you can compare....
hows that!!!!:thumbsup:
Oh and then I will lend you a brushless 1/8th either the RC8e or the 8.5e and see how you get on with that!!!!!!!:thumbsup:
But be warned I will be keeping evidence of lap times and taking pics of your happy faces with 1/8th cars

GRANT: Can I just point out that the only person on this thread that is directly involved with the club on this thread is Axeman. I promise you he is not knocking the 10th, he has worked harder than anyone to get the track 10th friendly. I've never even heard of the **** jacking the thread to knock 10th's

I think Axeman is making the track more 1/10 friendly as he is secretly plotting a return to 1/10 electric this season.... why, only on Friday he was reminising about the good old days when he used to race Cougars & Cats at Caldicot years ago ;)

And he was trying to shift some of his 1/8 gear too, i reckon to secretly buy more 1/10 electric gear.... :lol:

Dont put all truggy drivers in the same pot ! Some of us oldies do know what a racing line/apex etc are. and can actually achive said lines/apexes. :thumbsup:

Unfornatly most other truggy drivers just see an open field ?? :confused::woot:
