First I'd like to point out that this is definitely a pro racer's track! Secondly, I did a review for a new track authored by Preach's older (and smarter...but not by much) brother, Gutterboy, entitled "SLO Down". In that review I said it was one of the better tracks made this year; this fits in that category as well!

The letters "MX" at the end of the name says it all. I'm somewhat of a collector, and I have a slew of various types of tracks. Fact is, compared to the large quantities of circuits and rallies out there, MX/SX style tracks pale in comparison with respect to sheer numbers. On top of that, some of them just don't...grab you, you know. This one here will capture your attention from the word go, and as you maneauver your way through the twisting roads, sublte jumps/turns and half-banks, you'll understand why I feel this track easily keeps pace with some of the best MX tracks ever made - no doubt about it.

I'm not sure whether it was intentional or not, but this track has a sort of Behihm-like feel to it in some ways. The road texture is silky smooth in some areas, allowing for fluid-like turns and landings coming off of jumps that are timed correctly. But it also gives you the rough-rider feel that any good MX track will give you in top flight, allowing for some extremely fun racing. We had six SLOsters on it just this morning, and let me tell ya, it was a blast!

Preach has given us this one coming off the success of his recently released track entitled, "Halloween 2001". He not only cranks 'em out quickly when he wants to, he also ensures they don't suffer in "quality".

This one is a "must have" track! It may take some a few spins to get the rhythm of all the turns and jumps down, but once they do, they'll be in racing heaven! Hehehe

Preach, you've carved out another masterpiece, bud. I'm very much looking forward to sampling your current "works in progress". Keep doing what you're doing, partner. Who knows, one day I may ask for your autograph. Hehe Image

good review there Cope..

I don't rate tracks for variuos reasons, but if I were to start, this track surely would be somewhere around a 9+, and would pull a 10 if the cp's were more well defined... I kept getting lost between 6 and 7 then kept missing 9 :o) lol, but the track is still great imho...
not much else to add to Copes comments except that "Fuel" is a choice sound track, the Texture work is excellent as is your terrain and model placement... its fun to run yet tough to master in perfect balance...

thanks Preach nice job, all your tracks are a blast as are GB's
