I'm not too familiar with actual track sizes, but 96x40 seems good!

When designing the jumps, make sure to keep both scales in mind. Keep it tricky to make the driver think, but still easy enough for a newer driver to have fun. Elevation changes, diversity and sections that make you think are what make a track good in my opinion.

Hey you have my permission to put your ads on my thread. I'm not going to wine or cry about it. Actually, it promotes the hobby! So, if your that upset about promoting it and you feel threatened then remove it. Actually the name was a track here in the 80's, in fact that might just be where the name came from........huh Not intended to take racers, just let them know about a track here in pa. Sorry if you feel threatened.

no it just shows the kind of person you are. you have now respect! look at the other threads, all the other track talks and get along if you would have asked and i said yes it would be different. i dont think you are going to gain a lot of racers by doing it this way.

So, let me ask you; Whats the big deal? If i show up at your track with a huge race trailer advertising the shop and track are you going to be offended too? I think your blowing this out of proportion dont you?

No attitude here, just showing off a track to fellow racers. I hope you dont treat your racers the way you have treated me. Thanks for the permission to show up with my trailer

I'm interested in giving this location a try - do you have any more info regarding scheduling, location, etc? It's only an hour away so maybe I can come out on somewhat of a regular basis. Any plans on running 1/10 electric off-road?

And Hotrod - Make your own thread if your track is that important. Maybe we'll all come out to your place one day and hand out fliers for our tracks that run the same day as yours and take your clientele - I'm sure you'd love that, wouldn't you?

WE are completely removing the the oval Track to have the off road located in that area.

this will allow us to have multple elevation changes compare to before.

We are going to use the dirtoval clay and mix it will that black top soil. we will be able to expand it a slight bit more now.

Shawn


let it dry up some!!! and we will break ground.
