Default I can help

Robert,
I have the AutoCAD/drafting skills, and I am a hell of a Carpenter.

A little short on tools, but I have a lot of experience.

Thanks, and good luck to us all!

You need any extra hands for anything, I am good with tools and will help out with anything needed. Casper and I built the stand cover over the hot rod stand as we love to help in any way we can. So, you just let us know when and where and we will be there.

I just suggest! It is too hard to follow something to a "T" but you have to have stuff to go by. It also depends on the jumps and stuff. It is not hard to whip up about a dozen layouts that can be rotated through with new jumps and stuff.

I am so excited about this I can hardly wait!!!!!!

I am assuming you are going to use clay dirt?

Robert is trying to get the SoCal dirt... that would be good to go as it had a nice clay content. It would be even better once it was mxed up as I know SoCal allowed alot of the clay to settle to the bottom.

That dirt is awesome. Getting it all turned over would be good as well. People do not give that stuff enough credit!

That sounds about the size of MHOR. Not big but big enough. You thinking of standard 8 foot lanes?

That makes for ~6X9 lanes to work with.

What is limiting the track size? Just curious. Is it beams or building shape?


I think So Cal was 60X100 ish? or is that too big. I can't remember. I think the 100 is right but can't remember how wide it was?
