Default On road track overhead pictures needed

Hey guys,

I have a bit of land where I live here in Idaho, and i would like to start the paperwork on laying down a track. So far i could not find that many Satellite views from Google maps. But at least I did find Taymia's old on road track satellite picture.

If anyone can post on here some top down view pictures of on road rc tracks, i would appreciate it....

Cheers,

Gene

Default Seattle RC Racers SeaTac track


Hi,
always nice to see another track added to the list. Hope your endeavor goes well. If you need any thoughts and opinions about what we have learned putting a track together, please feel free to ask. Would be happy to pass along what we learned, and are still learning. :-)

Below are all the layout options. My brother Jake spent a lot of time playing with different ideas for the island positions and shapes in conjunction with working with a lot of our local drivers and even chatted with Marc Reinhardt about some aspects. We have run all of these different variations now over the last couple of years.
