Shane,

If you're looking at changing the track for 1/18th, is there any chance of making the track for mini shorter and/or more technical at the same time?

I speak for nobody but myself in this requuest, so others might think this is a dumb idea.

Thanks.

Scott.

I don't think it's a dumb idea Scott. Would probably be a good thing.

I don't want to get involved in the Mini debate just saying we aren't "Changing the track" for 1/18th. The club has made it clear we aren't to move or cut any pipes or track markers. We will be using jumps to get over the pipes to shorten the track wherever we need to. Do Minis jump ?

1/18th scale buggies (or trucks) - any brand - no particular controls till we try some things and see what we've got - numbers and interest wise etc etc.

1/18th scale Tourers. We are looking at the possibility we may be able to run these as well - just need to see how we can shorten and tighten the track to suit without moving or cutting any track markers etc.
