Default What is your favorite track surface to race on?

Lets say someone handed you a pile of money and said build me the best off-road track you can think of. What surface would you choose?
You can go further with this question if you like. ie. types of jumps, layouts, drivers stand....

Default Pile of $

I wouldn't build a thing, buy an RV and travel to different tracks and events. Much simpler then your own track.

I loved this years Silver State track and the size was perfect for me, but it was run Blue Groove. If I could have a track that size with Nitro Pit dirt It would be the track I would like to race on. Every time I hear people talk about tracks they talk about Thunder Alley, killer layouts but slippery when wet. Alot of the pros in this aera like running on loamy soil because it is a challenge like at Sun Lakes but I like smooth tracks like SRS.

Its not your own track. Someone gave you money to build it for them and you are the project manager. So after that comment.....

Clay under the lights with a tad bit of loam on the racing surface! best ever IMO. Not much tire wear at all.

Hard packed clay/dirt with a badass sprinkler system that perfectly waters the track between rounds! I also love indoor clay, but only for 1/10th scale.

I've never raced on anything other than good ol Arizona dirt. I like the moist hard packed smooth tracks the best.
