I would love to build a track for me, but the fact is no one except me could drive on it, and it is not fun racing yourself, or having the track close from not being used. No bowl turns because people fly off the track and they use a lot of dirt for no reason. It is easy to get through a flat section, but to do it fast takes more skill than hopping over a tabletop. I already said why there are no little obstacles, as they blow out fast with the sandy clay. So basically the potential you see is for a track that will close in 3 months when it is blown out and people are tired of not being able to make all the obstacles. A jump is a jump no matter if you land on it or take off from it. It takes the same amount of time and effort to make with a shovel and a couple of people.

A bobcat and unlimited dirt and it's a different track, but we live in Okinowhere last time I checked.

I am just glad that there is a track. I still go to Courtney once in a while even though it is beat up. Thats because I like to run my nitro. But it is lonely out there by myself. This new track will open up to allow more people to run. And then we can start racing again.

Very true. I could put a servo and radio gear back in the Slash. But the blitz will not run with the currant diff.

13.5 just gear about 2 teeth lower on the pinion than the buggy. I have a couple of saddles that you can use in the 22t. I would try however it is setup now.
