Default Track making!

Not really sure where to put this....mods do as you please with it. I was wondering who is building, has built or plans to build a backyard or even any track for that matter for your r/c vehicles? Got any tips, suggestions or ideas? Post em here. Got pics of your track? Lets see em! Im planning on building a backyard track soon. Hopefully starting within the next week. Not really sure what the dimensions will be yet but i have lots of room to work with. Its just gonna be a track where me and my buddies can race on the weekend or whatever. Nothing too fancy but i do have a tractor with a loader which will help me greatly. Hopefully ill start soon and have some pics of my progress.

i would say start with some kind of oval with a couple of jumps, you can always extend if the racing gets a bit intense!
