Default Building a Track/Size


I might be getting back into RC soon. I used to race onroad indoors but the local track closed down so I stopped racing but my parents just told be we are most likely buying a 1 acre lot, building a house and most importantly they said I could build a cement RC track.

Is cement better than asphalt??

How Big??
I cant make it huge but when they pour the foundation it wouldnt be much more for a couple of yards of cement.

I was thinking like 40' by 30' with PVC half buried around the edges of the track.

comments are appreciated

A 30M x 30M track is okay for EP Racing. Asphalt is better than cement so if you have the budget for asphalt, then I suggest go Asphalt. I attached a layout of one of our outdoor asphalt tracks in my area, dimensions are 30M x 30M with 4M wide lanes all around. We found it to be perfect for EP racing because we can have alot of lay-out options. I hope this helps.

thanks for the reply but I dont think I need a track that big, it would basically be only me and maybe a friend racing on it.
