Arrow My track and new website for central VA

Guys I just made a new website for VA racers.

Centralvaraceclub.com

Feel free to go there and register and hang out. There are plenty of threads you can post in and just enjoy talking to others about rc's.


This track I built in my backyard. It's a constant work in progress. Here are some track pics and video of the track before it gets redone this spring:

It will be 100% better of a track once I'm finished with it. I'm bringing in some more clay, adding more size to the track, adding more jumps, using a compactor and a roller to get it smooth and a couple other small things.

I just finished up making the track a lot bigger and got it all packed and ready for jumps and pipe for the new layout.

I still have to tamper the jumps smooth but this should give ya'll an idea. It's super smooth now that I box bladed the whole thing again. I've got the jumps laid out along with 5 new jumps including an elevation change.

It's raining so I couldn't go down there and take good ones. I'm probably going to put some woops somewhere too.

First vid is the first time I have ran on anything on here since redoing it all. The jumps are still rough because they aren't tampered. That's getting taken care of tomorrow.

Second vid is the rest of the battery pack from the first video. I started getting the hang of the track by the end of the pack. I think this is going to be a fun track when finished tomorrow!
