I really want to make that C Springs Border wars race this year!

Google SketchUp is a good, user-friendly and free option. I use it for all my rc track projects and other simple 'home-DIY-projects'.

Bringing back from the past
Does anyone know what type of track border is used on these tracks?


Picture from TheDirt website

We use drainage pipe and after a few weeks a few feet need to be replaced, cost for maintenance rises. The track borders on the picture above seem to be flexible and maybe "air filled"?. Thank you for the help.

ROAR still has insurance with the membership I believe. So you could require ROAR membership for track use.
