Does anyone have any good tips for surface preperation of an off-road track?
We're planning to run 1/10th EP classes, (2wd stock/mod, 4wd stock/mod), 1/10th Gas ST and 1/8th Buggies.
I love the look and feel of high grip & high speed 'blue groove' type tracks, but dont know how to build one.
Is the method to build the surface out of wet clay, and simply roll it smooth and let it crack up? Should it be watered occasionally to prevent cracking? Ideally I want to cut down on dust also, of course
Does anyone have any tips for a track of this kind? I like the track that is called 'tiltyard', how was this track built? Homer are you reading this?
I've seen people who also use other substances such as Vegetable oil on non-clay (loamy soil based) tracks, this works well on my local track. Does anyone have any tips for a track like this?
I've heard also that Sump oil works better than Vegetable oil but has some serious environmental concerns. Is this true?
What about Sodium Chloride (I think it was sodium chloride)? Has anyone experimented with this as a surface treatment?
Does anyone have any other tips for creating a high-grip, high speed type - relatively low maintenance track surface?
