Ok, it's not a rollercoaster, and it will never be - but in time, and when my tractor keeps the oil where its supposed to be - it will be awesome!

you have way to much wasted space, besides big jumps and tight turns are the fun part all those long straght aways are not very fun and kill motors.

Wheeled vehicles belong on the ground, but yes; I'm going to build some more "terrain features". The straights - not too long, I should know, havent killed a single engine on that track due to excessive rpm - not any of my friends either.
I have burned close to 50 gallons on that track - but its a live project, more jumps and technical areas coming up.

Wasted space - hell yeah - I've got about 80 acres being wasted on trees and other useless stuff

for the wasted space buy a 4wheeler and go to town.

sorry but I do not beleave wheeled vehicles belong on the ground they should be hurel in the the air as high as they can go but good luck with your track if you are happy that is all that matters.
