Default Tracks with Elevation Changes

Are there any vids of tracks with elevation changes? I'm not talking the small 1/18th scale and smaller. I mean like 1/10th, 1/8th or 1/5 scale tracks. I'd love to see a track that mimics Laguna Seca and the famed Corkscrew. A long time ago I used to run onroad (now run offroad after recently getting back into the hobby) and a Parking Lot track that I used to run at, used a loading dock area so we'd get these really great elevation changes where the car would unload in some areas and really grip hard in others. I also ran at Revelation at the time (before they went offroad) and this Parking lot track was so much more fun simply because of the elevation changes. Anyway, I'd love to see some vids of tracks like this.

The closest one to the cork screw would be Mini Circuit Ville de Luxembourg

Also the Jundiai Track in Sao Paulo held the nitro worlds was good also

A good one from the UK was the Ashby track - I think it has closed down now.



There was quite a steep drop in the zig-zagging track in front of the rostrum, and the sweeper at the end of the straight was heavily banked.

Great little circuit, I wasn't even close to mastering it on my one visit there!

Here's a nice old video!

+ YouTube Video
