this one was pretty tough. I wanted to make a more technical (yet still realistic) course and I could not find a way to use every single block available to me. I do hope it still came out alright anyway

Let it be known that the one block in the lower right is actually supposed to be a straight piece but I inadvertently put a curved piece there and I can't get the changed file to upload properly)

Looks great TD. Here's a 96' by 48' track with 8' wide lanes.

I tried to post a pic in another thread yesterday and it didn't work. Maybe someone is thinking we're posting too many pics lately Is there a maximum number of pics a member can post??? Did we bust our monthly quota of pics?

I asked futureal about that and he said that the attachment system crashed. Looks like we won't be posting any more pics until he finishes the board software upgrade (which hopefully won't be too much longer now)

I want to thank you guys for your innovative and interesting designs.
Can I use some of them??
I run a Large Indoor Dirt track in the winter in Michigan. Washtenaw RC Raceway.
Track surface is
100 X 60 Ft.
We average 150+ entries per race and race every other weekend November thru March.
Keep the Ideas coming!!

Hey man, thanks for the compliments. Yeah feel free to use any of the designs you see in this thread. All I ask is that you notify the person who made the design that you are using it so that they can be appropriately credited for their work

mistercrash,
Wanted to ask if I could use your designs for some layouts.
They work out great for our 100x48 indoor asphalt track.
