I agree with Dustin. #1 and #2 look like the most fun, with number 2 being my vote.

I'll be there for the electric JBRL round next month. I like #1 or #2 as well . They both have a decent straightaway and look to have some good technical stuff to make it fun. Elevation changes are always nice too.

Cool track

#1 for me. Man can't we get some of the oval in there. Exiting turn 3 and into 2 then 1 would be a great addition to the #1 track.
Just aq small request that we all wish for when we go to the Ocean,

Considering it's an electric event, I prefer 4. 'Cause they're small enough that it's not too much to get through those turns. But if 1/8th scalers are going to hit it after the Babcock race, that's a much tougher sell.

That's always a fine line for design. A great 1/10 scale track may not be appealing to the 1/8th scale guys. We are trying hard to accomadate all styles of racing.

Thanks Tyler, keep up the good work.

as Steve said, it needs to accommodate both 1/10 scale and 1/8 scale cars. Track #4 is a little on the small side for 1/8 scale, but perfect for 1/10.

so, in word of that, i just made this Track, #5. looks like it will accommodate both scales, but still being technical.

once again, thank you for the feed back, and hope to see you out racing.

We could learn from what hotrod hobbies did with there off road , they run both 1/10th and 1/8th scales .I have run there several times with my 1/8th, the track is always hard pack and a blast to drive on .. they use a leaf blower to blow of the loose dirt ,Then there is blue grove underneath . (Tyler S., I will be out to help this weekend, Karl R.)

After thinking about it for several weeks, I think I like #2 (with modifications). It will be very good for the Babcock series race. Then it leaves that whole center lane to be supercrossed out for the Friday Night Nitro Race later in the year!

I've got 12 designs sitting on my desk right now and I'm going RC crazy!

If we were only concerned about 10th scale then #4 would be off the hook! I've got several plans to use the whole bull ring. Can you imagine... We could easily get 100 people out there to race with 40+second lap times! Off the heezy fo sheezy!
