So is the wave gone, or just the first 6" then smooth? Might have to learn a whole new line :idea:

Holy crap! They're still pretty massive but look to be linear... maybe less damaging to suspension after multiple hits? (Broke a front upright years ago and ended up on top of a corner worker barrier)

I just hope the curbs don't change the racing line, and compromise the integrity of previous track records.
