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?

I will keep you all informed. We are hoping that this be a good move. It seems to be moving in a positive direction. Lets hope it grows

Getting me excited.

When do you expect to actually start running/opening? Any ETA? Lots of construction to do. The layout looks good.

You got the right idea. Elevation changes, and "non" back and forth is what is key.

if i make a crazy arena cross step up/ catapult jump would that stop some people from being interested?

Let me know how high the jumps and landings should be, remember i was in the motox industry and could easily over do it.

what is the thought on distance and height for cars?

Step ups are cool. LCRC has a pretty tricky one as shown here:

(Around 20 seconds in)

Remember, it needs to be friendly for 10th scale drivers but still good to keep 8th scale guys happy. I am not familiar with the actual sizes of jumps so you may want to wait on an actual track builder to chime in there.

Big jumps are big fun, as long as they're built right - make sure they have the proper transitions and kick. PRP made that mistake and made a bunch of huge jumps that were essentially driving up a long hill and then falling off a cliff, which means you can't clear the jumps.

Hey Shawn I see your thread also got hit by the dickhead known as Hotrod Hobbies. He has zero common sense and has hijacked about every thread he can find. I hope he don't ever plan on going to any track because he isn't welcome at any of them.

+1 on when do you plan on opening?, -1 on the help (live too far away)

Carcrusher is right, big jumps are fun if built right.
