Dear God,

Why not ask Paris Hilton to decorate the track? I am sure it will be nice and fluffy, not to mention it will definitely be in PINK!

The funny part of this whole blown out track/facility venue discussion is: (1) in the pics you can't see very much of the facility and (2) the track is not blown out.

I thought the same thing...here someone would turn you into OSHA just to get you shut down.....
3rd world...it cant be good
Used vegetable oil would work for a while if you knew a restaurant that didnt sell it...

Combination of Diesel and old sump oil from what I hear, not uncommon in countries with less emphasis on environmental protection, or areas of a country that dont have the enviro issues policed to their full extent (read as out in the sticks). I am sure some of the lads in the states will have sheds that have floors that are grey/black and chip out like clay. The oil and diesel bond the top couple of inches together a bit like cement but not that full on. Pro: no blowing out of a track, relatively low maintenance, reasonable grip Con: not terribly environmentally friendly, makes surface really really hard which can in turn be very abrasive to chassis and cause bending of chassis if a jump is messed up. The did it for the buggy party and pre worlds I think but from practice it looks like they are not doing it any more and that is pure tire rubber you see in the pics. I will be curious to see if they do it for the worlds, doesn't worry me either way, all competitors have to drive on it.

PS. I would not do this from an environmental perspective personally but do not judge those that have/are doing it.

Track looks great and that is not blown out at all... With a little of that oil they use, I bet it is very consistent. I'll race on anything, but prefer to have something other than a "freeway with jumps" to race on.


For reference, blown out was the 2009 Silver State Nitro.

Come on guys, 3 weeks of testing with all the best drivers in the WORLD n some of you have the balls to say 'oh it's not that bad' haha the track looks dry n beat to death, what else do u expect tho it had a million laps ran on it don't try to act all hard saying it's still perfect I know for a fact that alot of these top guys that were there all came home telling me the track sucked but that's because it wasn't oiled, they all talked about it being better if they just put diesel n vegetable oil in the dirt like normal there. From what I was told the track breaks cars and is wide open most of the time.

All they need to do is prep it like normal, they can get away with oiling the dirt and make a better race track for the racers to compete on, who likes racing on a super dry slippery surfice where u can't gas it without spinning out, make the track have that sticky traction shoot rip it up if it has plenty of moisture let that track become whooped out but for gods sake water it so it's atleast consistent. The facility is badass, maybe it's in a 3rd world country but it's like 5 times more professional then tracks in Cali I have never seen a rc track have building and towers to watch from n score from that's badass n there outline of the track is much better in my opinion, they just need to clean up n get it ready for the big race now.

That was some track. I remember that video. That's how an offroad track should be. The 2010 nitro challenge had moguls so large the the buggy would disappear in them. These are offroad buggys and truggys the track should be a little rough.

Any track that host's "The Worlds" should be pretty nasty and technical. I like it!
