  • What's up love the channel. I live here in South Florida and I would go with PVC. I think you may be able to find it as cheap as wood or maybe a little more expensive, but it pay for itself in 2-3 years. I'm pretty sure it's cheaper then marine grade wood.

I'm way Kool with 30 seconds at the beginning maybe 1 minute throughout a 20 minute video... But constantly breaking into commercial I haven't been watching SEworld for weeks now at all as much as I used to... I'm way behind on my cleeter vids

  • 0:52 thats my move lol I used to do that in Gran Turismo 5 all the time, it took a lot of practice, even in a video game and its still very difficult to do if you're not completely focused and in the zone lol - Its probably much easier with a real steering wheel but with a controller, its quite a difficult trick to pull off. The bleachers: It all comes down to safety. People are gonna be spilling beer and food CONSTANTLY. So the aluminum is more expensive, but anything worth having is expensive. Like anything in life, you get what you pay for. An investment up front is worth more than a law suit down the road I would imagine, but I'm just imagining possibilities and offering examples.

  • Going for the wood was the much better choice. Thank god all the seating is in great shape as well as the structure and you essentially just have to replace the floor boards.

  • Once you get this facility fully functional, legal in terms of race regulations for the public, and you start holding drift and race events, it will pay for itself quick. Who knows man, your track could be put in the list of tracks for all sorts of sanctioned events, like Formula D, Grid Life, etc.) On top of all your own personal events youll be holding. This track is the perfect blank canvas for most types of racing. All you need is some cones/barriers and you can change the layout to damn near anything. Imagine it being a known track to the race world like "Sebring, The Red Bull Ring, Spa, Donington Park, Willow Springs, etc.) I know shes a little small but there's lots of small well known tracks.

He wakes up in his beautiful hone, goes out on the scatt for a spin on his pond, takes Leroy to work plays and drifts with legends like taylor ray, Vaughn, Jeremy of fasterproms, tries to run fastest 1/4’s , do middle eastern drifts , rides in 2000hp jet boats, plays with any of his amazing record breaking cars /toys and jsut records it and makes an amazing living on SEworld! Hope you know brother how good you have it. I know it’s hard work, I have a friend that’s a big bike you tuber and it’s hard work but don’t forget you’re living rhe amerrican dream!!!!!

I think you also ought to look at both refurbing and increasing your track side signage- maybe even one of those snazzy moving picture signs! As great as this place looks daytimes, it really comes into it's own at night, so getting your lights and service up to snuff is also going to be big. Lots of Tubers building this season and next- that new shop sounds like a killer collab!

  • That feller teaching you about wood isn't exactly wrong but there's a better product from Sherwin Williams called deckscapes and it is much more durable and water resistant and will last much much longer than Thompson's which will only last you maybe 6 months if you're lucky. I know down there in Florida with elements beating down on it all the time I really wouldn't go with Thompson's, that's pretty much bottom of the barrel as far as quality and durability. I understand you have a lot of area to cover. Keep in mind that this is an investment for the long term and the more money you put in now the longer you will enjoy the fruits of your labor. I would think of it more like pulling teeth, and then why would you get dentures when you can get implants? I know it is painful to spend that much money and it kind of is like pulling teeth in a sense. If ever I knew of a will, driven by a fire, deep down inside........MY MAN CLEETER WILL BOG DEEP, AS HE DOES IT IN THE SPIRIT OF EARNHARDT, AND TOP IT WITH SWEET HONEY BBQ, IN THE VENUE OF THE BALD EAGLE WHICH HE HAS CREATED, AND FOR THE SANCTITY OF FREEDOM....RISE VICTORIOUS WITH VALIANT PRIDE AS HE UNLEASHES THE GLORY OF THIS ENDEAVOR UNTO US!! ........ His humble and loyal fans by OFFICIALLY OPENING TO THE PUBLIC! What may just be the coolest racetrack ever put together by such passionate enthusiasts that this sport has EVER FREAKIN' SEEN! ........ or something like that. Above all just keep up the great work. I absolutely love watching you guys and hope that one day I can come down there to Florida purchase my ticket to watch it all live! ✌ "Peace 'n Chicken Grease" ✌
