Default 1/10 Off Road Tracks

Our club is in the process of laying a new track for the Nationals
any advice that can be given would be much appreciated.

What is the best type of Surface.

What is your idea of a good layout.

What do you add to the surface to hold it together.

How do you maintain the racing surface during the season.

Pics of your track layout.

Clay content is important, and make sure its packed tight.

Invest in a roller that you can fill with water (water/antifreeze for colder climates)... keep it watered. Sifted top soil for starters... and don't be afraid to add a percentage of clay if you can afford it. Good luck!
