It's not a track, it's a oval stadium and then do figure 8's. Youtube it.

VinnyMac, What's up with all of the Wall hate?

You forgot how awesome it is to see tandem on the bank.

Btw, here's a pretty good video of some of JTP's runs at Wall Last year to give people an idea of what the venue is like. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JqfJbk4nWA

I forgot that Wall 2009 was where Darren McNamara established himself as one of the nastiest tandem chase drivers.

Ever.

If I remember correctly, he bested Vaughn Gitton Jr. to win the event.

Also, I think D-Mac was rated like the Best Drifter in Europe for a while.

Thanks for the Video VinnyMac. That made my day.

haha, no problem fro bro!

Ya, D-Mac def threw it down last year at Wall and a tandem battle I'll never forget. It was literally wheel to fender chasing.
People actually think this track is easy, but it's actually not. Going from the bank entry to bumpy elevations, alot of drivers have difficulty there.

Well said.

Everyone thinks that wall is "Just a Figure 8".

It's not. Suspension setup plays a huge part in success or lack thereof.

If I remember correctly, the difference in angle between the infield and the bank is approximately 20* at the point where the cars make the first transition. That's enough to make cars do some interesting things...

I'd venture to say that a few of the lower (properly stanced) cars like Matt Powers' S14 and Mike Whiddet's Rx-8 are going to struggle a lot with this track.

Powers is one of the few that I'd like to finally see in person and along with Jr's new Monster/Falken mustang.

Definitely.

I just kinda want to talk to Matt Powers, and see what goes on in his head. I'd like to think that he and I would be somewhat alike, and by alike I mean pointlessly random.

I really want to see Madd Mike's car up close too, and see how low it really is. I'm curious about how much modification was done to his Rx-8 to allow for proper suspension travel and all that fun crap.

JR's new Mustang is pretty rad, but I'll try to look at it at ECB so I can spend my time at FD looking at cars I might not be able to look at otherwise.

I also want to check out Mike Essa's BMW, that thing is so awesome, it just needs a bit more low and some more fine tuning and it'll definitely be a vehicle capable of winning an event.

Oh, and I want to look at Robbie Na****a's GT-R and see if it's what I think it is. (I'm pretty sure that it's just a 350z Drive-train dropped in a GTR shell with all of the AWD crap removed aka - the way an American company would tackle a difficult problem - the easy way.)

I really wish that Tommy Roberts was up to driving the whole FD season, his car is so awesome, and one of the last cars in FD with TRUE street style.

I'll be there, can't wait actually. This event is awesome at Wall compared to the haggard thing they threw together at Etown where you could only see 2 damn turns.
