1 extreme, how did the jumps hold up?
At the Kyosho race they used a "soil tac" type of stuff.(made for Army heli pads)
It worked very well until it was watered, then it started to break up.
It was like 1/8" thick clear coat mixed with dirt.
But, when it broke up, it broke out in chunks and then you had issues with softer loose dirt surrounded by the harder area that was still intact. Next thing you know you had a hole that would eat an 8th scale.
It held up great for all the practice rounds, 2 days of 12 buggys on the track at a time for 14 hours straight.
14 hours * 60 min = 840 min of racing per day
840 min * 2 laps per min(average lap time of 30 sec) = 1680 laps
1680 laps * 12 buggys at a time = 20160 laps per day
Not sure if I did that right, but food for thought.
