It sucks! J/K I'm just jealous. Looks pretty sweet! That Crossover looks like 1/8 scale only material.

most everything makes it unless its a stock slash... the 1/10 scale gas trucks are pretty good on it as long as we water when its dry.. we want to make it more technical any suggestions? its not as easy as it looks to build its a pain in the ass!

Wow, that looks like a wider jump than what most but a stock slash would make. Got a Rhythm section? Slap some mounds of dirt down and stagger them overlapping in the middle. Maybe an Off Camber turn? Building a track is a lot of work. Done some myself using a bobcat then manual labor with the rakes and shovels..But the reward is worth it!

theres a rythem section that you cant see from the pics.. and i have a bobcat and a johndeere with a frontend loader and tiller but the rakes and shovels suck ass!! ive been playing around and by mixing sawdust and quickcrete in when i till it holds it all together and draws the moisture in better.. its all built on a grade so drainage is good but it drys out fassssstt thank god for sprinklers hopefully a sprinkler system soon i have under 1000$ invested total at this point so im happy and the drivers stand is pretty big it holds 6-8 comfortably.. im gonna take more pics this weekend.

I wish i has a backyard that i can make a track. I think that would be a dream to just get up and go practice on your own backyard everyday. Your track looks great. Lucky you.
