I cheat

The bodies are from Prographix, the green color is the only thing I painted. You can get them for Traxxas cars thru Tower Hobbies (and others). I don't remember where I found the one for my 1/8 but it is from Proline. They are simple to paint and look great, the E-revo and Slash came pre-cut as well.

Have not heard a word.........

I am going to sort thru the posts that had track layout ideas and try to post a poll.

If the Seabees come available we will need a plan.

Default VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE TRACK DESIGN !!!!

I can’t add a poll to this thread…………..but I think it would be best to do it hear. I have gone through all the pages and came up with a list of track suggestions. Below are the page and post #s as well as a title. If you want to vote please look them over and reply with your choice. At some point maybe late next week we can add them up and go with it.
Page 1 post #14 – “Hot Shots”
Page 2 post# 29 – Generic track
Page 3 post# 43 – no name
Page 6 post #84 – HMS racing
Page 6 post# 86 - Crossover
Page 6 post# 88 – Paulie’s sketch
Page 7 post#96 – Wiregrass
Page 7 post#105 – Jon’s, 3 pictures
Page 8 post# 107 – or something like this

Pass the word to anyone that has shown an interest to get this thing going!!!!

I like the crossover design and Paulie's sketch. My vote is for Paulie's sketch, but there must be enough of a run up to clear the triple. Just my opinion.

I agree about the tripple. If we ended up going with that sketch design, I'd also like to move the tripple to the left a little to allow proper run up.

Josh, the Revo looks like a beast..........almost makes me want to put my Nirto Revo gack in action........but not quite.

My vote is for a layout very close to the "Hot Shot" design. It would need a little modification for turn marshals.

I voted this way because I am still not convinced we will get all the equipment or materials to go with one of the more aggressive tracks. Also keep in mind the same 6 or 8 people that are on this forum and voting for the track are the only bodies we can count on to upkeep the facility.

think we need to power rank these, but I'm with Ken on getting a track down with no materials.

#1 HMS
#2 Jon's
#3 Paulie's

As far as a run up to the triple only need about 15 feet unless you're nitro...

Josh the Revo's bitchin! What's the silver jet turbine thing hanging out of the....oh, its a muffler....oh, guess you'll need a run up to the triple too...

Out at Siro's track for on road Sunday AM...running the same LT used in the 3 hour endurance race-it's broke in real good now-
