Almost good enough but not raceable yet for my car. 


Update September 7  2017

I went out to the salt flats to evaluate the conditions for the upcoming two events that I would run.  That would be World of Speed in September and World Finals in early October.   The WoS event already has an idea of where they are going to have a track.  WF is still a little up in the air and it will depend on conditions later.

For World of Speed the long course will run through the location of the Speedweek pits.   This is essentially the same location that the recent motorcycle event ran.  It is a lot better than the Speedweek track. The exact starting point has not been established yet but my predictions are an ok track from the 0-3 mile. There is even ¾ of a mile in the first part that is nice and smooth.  From the 3-5 mile it starts to get into a real hard and fairly rough section.  They hope to smooth it out in the rough section but I don’t know if they will be able to. I really hope they can smooth it out because the salt is firming up in the other sections.  In the end I had to make a tough call and decided not to try and run the World of Speed event in September.  I do not think my suspension set up will allow me to get a good time from the track at the condition it is in now.  I will wait and see where the World Finals track will be and what shape it is in before I make a decision on running that event.
