I'm just trying to build a good jump and track
just go to youtube there are thousands of vids of racing, big and small tracks.

look for tracks such as manor rc, or s&n trackside hobbies. they are very small tracks and i have watch vids from those tracks before, so i know they are there.

for lipos check out the orion 3200s,3600s,4800s, all great stuff

also the tracks you do know of most likly have pics on their site.

Okay, so I DID find out how high jumps really are and they are 18"-48" high. For all those who actually came to learn something.

You really need to check your facts, but no need since you're the expert.

And the only person that "who actually came to learn something" - i.e. was asking the stupid questions - was YOU.


Go back, do one of your ridiculous track designs, and add your car-breaking 4 foot jumps ............good luck

this one looks good LOL

but on a serious note, we did have a ~4 foot jump at my local track, Hot Rod Hobbies, and for the record, it did break a bunch of cars.

RocketRob - Even if your motives are noble, you're going about this in entirely the wrong manner. You don't seem to be providing anything constructive to this thread.

Please chill out on trying to cause problems.

Aaron - I hear ya, but I was trying to stop the same thing from happening again that already happened. I tried to be constructive in a previous thread, got played, and so I'm just returning the favor via a warning to others.

That's all, I'm cool.............

48" is 1/8 scale territory. Stay under 36" for 1/10 scale. This will keep you from having to replace alot of parts.

This is an 1/8 scale track!!! Need to show him 1/10 scale. 1/8 are alot more durable.

it is a cool track, but he would have to down size a little for 1/10. but for 1/8 that looks pretty cool
