Default HPC Dirt Track

HPC ,

the dirt track recently is looking more like a hazard course than a track lah !
pipes sticking out , rocks sticking out on the jumps , brick here there ...

Not complaining or anything .. just some feedback lah !!

Love spending time there , hope you fix it up .. so can spend more time there

we know we know...sorry.

Not easy to mantain off-road track....CNY just over give chance a bit lah.

Once on-road track is completed, we will start to renovate the off-road track. Immediate improvement is the drivers stand staircase...much better right now correct?

How I wish Ah Chai can split into 5 person...

I second that. Rock on top of the ramp is a bad news for off road cars. Not too much a problem for nitro car metal chassis but a real killer to electric cars.

During hot sunshine day, you can splash water on the ramp to soften the earth. Afterward, you can remove the rocks easily.

I am waiting for the day HPC's off road track to be smooth enough that electric buggy with low ground clearance can drift nicely on it. Perhaps, IFMAR race in the future

hahahahhahahahahahahah...............bricks!!! took out my trucks arm........the same brick I might add.

Well, it looks way better than the construction site I have been jumping around with my buggy........plus it is safer.......no indons can get too cosy with you (no pun intended)

buggy season is in ......... we need more Ah Chai's !!!!! 5 tarak cukup laaa.......need 15 Ah Chai's so the track can be up and kicking in a weeks time......need to put in the buggy hours before rain comes again.

on the other note for players :
those rock and bricks , take em out and throw out .. way out the fence ..
so that they dont make their way back to the track ..

Brick / and concrete slabs are not friendly stuff to use as layout markers ..

Maybe we can help HPC with that lah .... just my 2 cents ..

Bro.... As HPC said... just after CNY. and the maintenance is not cheap I do agree... It happend to our NIKO track in JB.

As off roader.... just whack lah..... if you want smooth ( then play on roadlah).... he he he... joking ya.....

Anyway... just my thought..... why not you all bergotong royong help to repair here and there a bit for the track. Then we only need 1.5 Ah Chai... not 5 Ah Chai....

We use to do this in Niko track........ Not changing the track ah.... just help out to repair it a bit. Cheers!

lobil

I also threw away many bricks and concrete slabs from the track especially away the race line. Somehow, some people have a lot of free time to put them back. Depends on which side of the fence we are in, many feel that crashin' really sucks but to some people, crashin' is good for business.

Whatever it is, rocks, bricks and slabs do not belong there. Even though some people think it's good for business, we have to pity many who have have crashed and retire due to no spare parts and too much repair costs.

Think about long term, more people play, more fun and more revenue for the track owner. More crashing, more people retire instead of rushing to the rc shop to buy spare parts.
