It's an overworked catchphrase today, but that track is awesome!!!


I am not a doctor, but I played one as a child with the girl next door.

It is a great build and super work, but not a track I would want to try to race on with my friends.    We have trouble with a figure 8.

That is outstanding.

Some people are like Slinkies... they're really good for nothing... but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Look up AC2Car.org for a better understanding of why that track is designed the way it is.

It's an awesome track, but at the same time a very difficult track to race many blind spots.
