I've only been there once so far, but it's a pretty quick fun track. It's quite a bit more bumpy in comparison to MSR Cresson, but my memory is hazy on MSR - I did my last laps there like 12-something years ago. The staff is awesome, though. There's runoff room for days, and there's a nice elevation change. Like most tracks, if you get a chance to run it, do it.

I completely understand. I knowingly purchased a home within 15 minutes of the track, but it took a year for me to get openings in my schedule to get some track time in. As far as the heat, I was scared as well, but I did multiple 20+ minute sessions and my temp gauge didn't fluctuate. IIRC, the ambient temps were in the low to mid 90's at the time.

Guys, let me know when you head over there, I'd love to do a follow behind and see what line you guys take & pick your brain, or do a ride along. I have a work event on Saturday, but I'm thinking I may head out there sometime Sunday for a few laps. I live like 2 exits down from the track & if I can get out of work commitments early enough I possibly could make it out there during the week, later afternoon.
I thought I recognized your user name... Looks like I will be there this Sat. til about 5:30, if anything changes, and it may, I'll let you know.

As far as Temps go, I highly recommend an oil cooler. If you don't have one, get an app or something to monitor oil temp, if pushing hard, you can get oil Temps in the 270-280 range in about 4 laps.... without your water temp fluctuating much at all... I ended up replacing my DI seals in November of last year after running hard all summer... Can't say for sure it was temp related but.... I have since installed an oil cooler.... Gotta get back to work, any questions, let me know.

Tim

I think I'm going to use it as a reward at this point, get the new house cleaned up and move in, then I'll use it to do something I've been wanting to do for a while.

No worries, let me know when you can head up to HH, I'm literally like 10-15 minutes away. I've got the PST event penciled in right now, but I'm going to be closing a project in League City (between Houston & Galveston) the day before, and I'm hoping I can get the hall-pass from the wife to head out to Cresson. Thinking optimistically, I think I may have a 50/50 shot...
