Default Pictures of your tracks

Can you post some pictures of the tracks you race at.
We need some ideas for a new one we are planning to build.

What do they use on the jumps so that they don't fall apart?
We haven't tried "pre-made" wooden jumps yet...do they work OK or natural track dirt is much better?

we use natural dirt, but some people have natural dirt, but cover the jumps with carpet to minimize wear

People that can get in a bobcat and start moving dirt, paln the jumps out so that they can be cleared with a buggy is an art. I wish that I had the talent that some of them did. I guess the first thing would be to be able to drive a bobcat well enough.

I have been to quite a few tracks here in the midwest. We have some that are just simply amazing and then there are some that could use quite a bit of help, if you know what I mean.

If you are lucky enough to be able to fit a truckload full of clay into your budget, make all the faces of the jumps and corners with berms out of as much packed clay as you can. Minimal wear

Try mixing dirt in a wheel barrow with sugar and water for your jumps the sugar acts like cement and holds it togther this is good for a strong base for your jumps, after the jump is built and the way you like it sprinkle sugar on it and water it and that will make the surface of the jump hard and should not blow out. You could also try mixing some post paste found at home depot with the dirt it is a cement and it should hold the base together
