Part of the hobby is learning how to work on them!

The XXX-4 has a pretty tough drivetrain. I new something had to be wrong.

Have fun!

Hey, StampedeinIt,

I like the video of your homemade track (seen in your for sale thread).

Here is a video of my homemade track with my xxx-4 (and a Slash).

StampedinIT,

Here is a rough plan for next year (see attachments). I want the twisty-turny section to be entirely on a camber sloping a little bit towards the drivers' stand, and then I'll figure out some details as I build it.

The stand is pretty easy. I used all pressure treated lumber (heavy). The sections (except for the stairs) are 6 feet long and 3 feet high to the floor and 6 feet high to the rail, and 3 feet deep. I can just barely tip one up on its corner and push it up into my pickup truck. I use 2 bolts to snug each section to the next. If I get more people coming to my track, I will build another section. Also, these do not need building permits in my area; they just sit on top of the ground and can be moved. I can take more detailed pictures if you want (after the snow goes away, see snow photo of the track).
