Default New Back Yard Track

Well, I just spent many days putting in a new track in my back yard... I have quite a bit still to do but so far I am very proud if it... Check these pics out and let me know what you think...

No, I am up North around Lake City... There has been some revision to the track as severl lanes were too tight... When I buiklt it, I never intended to have more than 4 trucks on the course at a time and I wanted something to give me difficult practice... Thanks for looking... I have a driver stand beuing built and fine tuning being made... I will update with new photo's after it is finished...

I'm jealous and applaud you and your effort. Just one thing... you say you wanted it difficult but the lanes were too narrow. Leave the fast areas wide but narrow it down in the technical areas. A driver should be running on a 2-3 foot wide lane and even less in the corners. If you are racing competitvely and drift a few feet wide you will be passed or at least make the lap times slower. does your dog get all uppity when you don't let him play too?
Post up some videos, we love this kind of stuff.

Thanks... I have to put my dog up when we race becasue he chases it likea greyhound does at betting tracks... It would be good to train that way but when he catches it, he thinks he it to bite the tires... Which is NOT good... So he just sits and barks as it passes his side of track... Pretty funny...
