It was actually gleaned from a conversation I had with Chad, I believe he said it was H3rsq's (Jason) idea.

Certainly sounds like a viable idea if the local tracks embrace it. (if that is where it would be used)

Only down fall I can see at this point is it would force the trucks to become faster thus eliminating a lot of the "scale" rigs for the SORCCA rule set. And that may lessen attendance.

On the flip side it could open a door for a lot of racers from the short coarse side and what not. I would imagine it would achieve a lot more exposure also.

I keep looking at the rocky beaches on the Pilchuck and Stilly river as a possible course. you could beat over the round river rock up the bank down the trail turn around and back down on the beach, maybe a great year round practice area for fine tuning the suspension.

Most established tracks are larger and generally faster and smoother flowing. I am not sure existing track owners would allow the track to be modified other than some drop in place obsticles. Pulling pipes and running the wrong direction or alternate line most likely wont fly.

Hence faster trucks....I am all for faster and flowing areas, my trucks are equipped for that. But, I am thinking of others that may not be ready to build a truck specifically for those scenerios.

Just playing devils advocate. and making sure we look at this from all angles to grow this the best way possible for the local scene.

Shrinking a track down is easy. Keep an equal amount of fast and technical areas. A simple plywood ramp can get you from lane to lane.

And what about fastening some rock (or even some fake rock that's a bit lighter) sticks and whatnot to some plywood for obstacles that can be added and removed on different tracks.
