Unhappy help with track design

With all this race knowlege on rc tech I thought that I would ask people ideas about track designs it's an ozite for touring cars what I was thinking about was an up and under like real touring not a jump but like a hill, So please give me track designs of all kinds.( by the way the track is 80 / 40 ).

I've seen places try it and it really doesn't work to well with the low ride height of touring cars. To make it so it isn't a jump it has to be very gradual and if a car did get get caught under neath it is very hard to marshall. It is more the fact of getting something that the cars won't dig into and not cause a jump.

Just make it where the cars catch a little air. No offense, but 80x40 is pretty small and you won't have room to make a non-jumping over-under. Just do a hill on the back straight and let the cars just float over the carpet at the peak. Then post some videos of the races so we can all be in amazement.
