Default New 1/10 Off-Road Track in Kuwait

Hey guys,

just wanted to share with you some photos of the new track that i'am building here in Kuwait for 1/10 electric off-road cars.

the track is an outdoor track made of agricultural soil that will be sprayed later with our secret liquid to turn it into a very high bite surface.

its 30 meters long and 12 meters wide, straight line is 3 meters wide, and the rest of the track is between 2.5 to 2.8 meters wide. i think its perfect for 1/10 cars.

so far we have finished the whole sand/dirt work, compacted everything!! and its looking good so far. looking at the Hotrod hobbies track on youtube, i wanted the same outside barrier/fence so thats what we did, wooden fence painted in white and looks amazingly good. still to ley down the 2.5'' pipes and put the grass looking carpet in the dead areas we also need to build the drivers' stand, any ideas would be great !!!


the area we are working with


night time view to check how the lights are


base ground is ready for the work


flat, sprayed and compacted....ready for the leyout and jumps


few jumps started to take their shape


more jumps


table top and the big triple


another view where we see the step-on step-off followed by the 5 small jumps


the fence is done shiny white and looks amazing IMO

hope you like it guys, will post more photos when we ley down the hoses and everything!!

cheers

Ali

hey guys,

thanks a million for the kind words, Trev ,Chris thanks bros

about the mixture, not really sure whats the name of the soil.....its called ''Gatch'' a soil thats normally used under asphalt roads!!!!

leyed down around 4 40 footer trucks to make the base, after spraying and compacting, the whole area was raised around 20-25CM, we then mixed about 30% of agricultural soil and 70% of this Gatch to form all the jumps, compacted the whole track around 3 times, installed the barriers and recompacted it.

am supposed to ley down the hoses today but its been raining for the last 2 days in Kuwait!!!

waiting for the surface to dry to pin all the hoses and spray our secret liquid

cheers

Ali
