    Thumbs down Granite strip

    So what do you all think of the new Granite strip on the start finish line on NHMS, my thoughts are it will probably be fine in the dry but it appears to be a polished piece and when it is raining I would suspect it to be a bit slippery. Thoughts ??

    The WHAT? I spun the rear over the start/finish in the wet when it was paint. I can't imagine it'd be polished.
    Hopefully it's roughed up.

    You are straight up and down over that. I doubt it will be an issue.

    Nope. It needs to go from the top of the hill to the bowl to stop you.

    Re: Granite strip

    I was wondering how it would be at the start, especially in the rain. OR, if you're making a pass on someone.

    Looks like they put down more paint too. Probably over the grid markings for bikes.

    Suppose they made the pavement around it flat? Or is it kinda flat, like T2?

    Not a big deal really - I'm sure we'll adapt, NASCAR pays the bills anyway.
