Default Track on the roof of 8 story building

This is what we found today. Track is located right outside the Kichijoji station in Tokyo, on the roof of this mall/department building. Pit tables, outlets, driver stand, and vending machines.

Sorry about the pics, it was getting dark and they're from my phone.

Nah, the only way you could fly off the roof is if there was a huge ramp at the end of the straightaway and you somehow were able to launch it ~50ft

That'd suck but be somewhat funny because the people in the streets would be like WTF when a toy car comes crashing out of the sky.

The three vending machines are: ice cream machine, drinks(hot and cold), and then instant food (like fried rice, chicken nuggets, etc)

Not bad at all. Just using some paragon on the rear and inside half in the fronts once and then keeping the tires clean with spray worked fine.

I forget which building it was, you exit the station on the South Exit and take a left, go around the corner and you go in after the parking garage/elevator. I will get the actual name of the building when I go again.
