Google offers a FREE 3d program that will work after you get a grip on how to use it for track design.

carpet is for onroad not off road stuff, lanes should be 10-12 feet, jumps sizes just go with what you want, there is no standard. IF you want a 30 foot triple, go for it.

clay is good but is alot harder to dig up,and if it gets dry will burn tires up.
