Texas, please continue. I click on this thread regularly. I've put my plans on hold until this thing gets resolved, and when it does, I'll book my flight and hotel asap for another meet up.
Thanks buddy! Here you go...

Also, check this out. Here's Tavo's 5 year old COTA layout sketch & planning notes. Very cool.

Pretty cool Texas

I like the notations

Geo, can you analyze to see if they were jotted with a standard #2 pencil or the mechanical variety



Weve all probabaly drawn out a fantasy track in our heads or our notebooks a time or two

How cool would it be to have your ideas come to life.



I question the decision to use Schwantz to help design the track.

The bikes he rode were scooters compared to what they are riding today.

Too much has changed for his opinion to be relevant. What may have worked in his time could be dangerous today
