A ribbon track would be sweet. Just make sure to make the lane widths wide enough to be 1/8th friendly. The last ribbon track I ran on (Linville, VA) was brilliant for TC but just too narrow to get a 1/8th around at speed. Get it wrong the first time and you're stuck with it. Can't just move some boards around.

We want to make it big enough for 1/5th scale. How wide do the lanes need to be?

well 301 ran 1/5 scales and I think there lanes were atleast 12 to 15 ft and I think the lanes for 1/8 scale has to be atleast 12 ft wide per the roar rule book.

I would have to go measure a track to be sure but I would say 15ft is a bare minimum.

Would love to see another track around this area. I use to go to 301 and do a lot of photography (by the time I decided to get my MTX4 the track was closing). Would be nice to actually do a few laps

Yep, I know exactly where that track is, and it's not that far from my brother's house (He's in Newberg, just on the other side of the bridge). That would be cool

I want to say the corners were 15 feet and the back straight may have been 20 feet wide at 301. Can't remember now
