Oh . Now I see it. They bascially just straightened out the wall.

You can see where the wall used to be in this pic.

Why would you not be hard on the gas for a straight?

I'm usually wide open coming out of T17.

Yeah, the new setup blows big time. When combining T16 and T17 you can really carry some speed except now there is little exit room for T17 and if you blow it you are screwed. There was some talk the last time I was out there about redoing the asphalt to combine them into a single turn.

Yeah T16 and T17 are going to be reconfigured a lot. The wall shouldnt be as much of an issue then. As well as the track being repaved (with only 1 seam!(sp?))

usually those turns are always slippery anyway
but them straighting the wall did make a big difference
i cant let it slide like i used to anymore

anywho its a small issue but easily fixed by just changing a little of the riding styles

Yes but, the track is not friendly to competitive riding with the current situation. Nobody wants to let off the gas when you are trying to get around someone for position.
