As far as Johnny is concerned ...... after the track is cleaned and "rubbered up" ....... it's just the luck of the draw.
Also with our tracks being so large, 35mtrs for me and 40 mtrs for Craigs, you don't get 20 laps to get warmed up ........ 20 laps and it's over on mine, so you have to be on the money from the start
35 - 40 metres ! I will need to put an aluminium drop tank in to cover that distance.
I am thinking about leaving my track surface quite rough in parts so the driver will not always be flat out and sliding around everywhere , Some slower sections to negotiate that if taken too fast will bump the car about and possibly de slot it.
I have no idea how rough I can go as I have never ran a rally car on anything like a rally track before. Twists , turns and off camber corners are not hard to get used to on a flattish track but some of the tracks have ruts and corrogations - which I think are great.
Any helpful hints on how rough I can leave it would be appreciated so I don't have to find out that I have gone too rough after its all painted up. I would like to avoid re doing any areas of the track once its all braided up.
