What version is this.. Most used amb systems sell for about 2000.00. Also, fyi, alleycat has a free version of software for upto 5 racers. Or for 250.00 you can purchase the full license.

Default A few suggestions.

Clay can be hard to come for right now, you can build wooden ramps / jumps which could be a more affordable option for you, until it launches. Sometimes you can pick up the extra wood from contractors who are done with a project.

He bought it and came with the software . I don`t remember which version , but it accepts personal and house transponders . I know a few that have lucked out and bought them for $700 and less . He will know more after he meets the owner on Monday . When I had my track I mixed black dirt with clay since clay is sometimes hard to get and can be expensive depending on who you get it from .

I only have a couple of pics. but ther is a bunch of stuff in the way so they dont give a very good idea exactly how big it is, the space i am going to use is 60' by 60' and the rest of the place i am not sure but atleast that times three. Its a good thing those tires on my van are new might have had to call a tow truck, i know you said to go slow but in that thing it does not work need to clean out the tires i have had it in that sit. before.

60x60? Is that going to be the track area, including pit row, and drivers stand?

Do you plan to have offroad track?

That is a pretty small area, the other track was 100 x 65 and that is considered a small track.

I believe the 60x60 area is just for the track . Sounds like he has plenty of room and sure he will know more after talking with the owner .
