I didnít find them to much of a problem on the triples, except for the interference I got every lap coming up to it !!! I normally struggle on jumps but found these to be ok unless you took it on the outside in which case it just went straigtht up !!!.

Anyway back on topic

no access is fine,

off the main road you will see a big sign for the golf course, and the a dirt road to the right, stay on that up to the golf house( you go around a rfc club house ) once at the golf house follow the path to the right and this will lead you onto the golf range, it was boggy on the first part into the rage thanks to the freek down pore on friday but nothing to worry about.

The jumps are very easy to clear and land on the down ramps, you dont need full power as most have a S or apex after the down ramp and the the up ramps provide enought air for the gaps with out going into health and safty hights

no pics im sorry as we only ran a jump test day on the weekend and every thing was a mock up of the real jumps, thursday of the national will be the only time pics will be available.

52.05 miles, about 1 hours 15 mins Happy days, be there in like 40mins using golf speed!!! That's the closest track to me ever, it's almost 'local'.

Millzy is this your local track then? Hope to see you there, chuffed to discover its so close, that's a result.

Was well worried yesterday when my tom tom said I'd be home at 11:30pm (when leaving Oz at 6ish), luckly all the traffic jams it was predicting had gone when I got to them, was home at 9:30, would not have been happy with 5 1/2 hours drive, don't think golf could have taken it.

Bring on the Talywainiinleyleinywaintallywiner event, going to be ace I'm sure!

That was one spot where I got interference in 4WD!

Had it both days - only common item was transmitter. Cured it with 2.4GHz though.

I dont think we were the only ones...

There are pics from a Nitro meeting, that used diffent jumps and a track desinged by a Matt who runs the club and Golf house and used there 8th nitro jumps

We will be the frist to run 10th electic on the grass, and all the jumps have been desinged for 10th racing by me for this event and we will be the frist to use them.

hope this helps dude

www.nitrotrucks.com its under Photo gallery, and the meeting dated 26 Aug 2007 held there shows more of the banking and hump we will use. but NOTHING else we we be used( apart from the grass and rostrum duh)

Im assuming that the tracks not going to be HUGE. There are plenty of people that i think would agree that lap times in the order of 25 seconds are about right anything else and it starts to get a bit big. location seems alright tho and the grass seems to hold up alright, so fingers crossed it should be alright.

Im assuming that the jumps will have a bit "more" effort for the national

Danny Danny Danny

did you not read my post that all the jumps are new for the national and designed by me, there all curved kick ups with down ramps and center sections or gaps if you will.

there not random bits of wood put over random things to make an up ramp, Chippys have been given the designs , mock ups have been made and tested its all cool dont worry about it This is a national and ive been racing at natinal level for over 10years so i know that effort is key.

please remeber this is the frist national the club will put on, errors may happen but we can learn from them any pop there ugly heads up

And no its not going to be huge we have set a maxiumum time for a few f2s (who are not racing)to lap the track in and obviously the A final boys will beat that lap time with out setting to low of a time

Just cross your fingers for the weather, track will be ace.
