i've run on all these tracks alot and honestly when rchr is dry and has square edge holes i can eat a set of tires in 1 night not to mention ruin the rims by sliding sideways into 1 of them holes. i would donate money and time to help out with getting a better surface. once we went clay the facility would stay a bit cleaner due to less dust. but once a layout is down its really hard to lay down a new layout. clay is not easy to work with and we would all need to pitch in when ever there is a new layout going down. that being said when mark and john decide to put down the nex. tt layout just show up and help even if its with this dirt. not only to show our commitment but also once someone works and sweats building a track they wont stand there and watch someone bash into everything time and time again, theyll speak up and ask that driver to respect the track.

Ya I had my J Concepts Mono wheels brand new get a crack in them

Something that i noticed which was awesome, and can totally be done at RCHR, but i noticed it was much easier to drive consistent. I think I only crashed twice in my last qualifier, it was sweet!

Unfortunately throwing money at this will not be enough, like Tom said clay can be incredibly difficult to work with. I'm sure most tracks cut the clay with a sand or top soil mix. I think it's great that everyone is willing to donate money and offer to help out. You have to look at it from Mark and Johns point of view, How many times do they have to ask for corner marshals? This will be much more difficult than marshaling...

Stop whining ! Hahahaha

Be glad you have a track and a good hobby store with quality parts.

Where I'm going, it's an awesome track, with alot of traxxas parts on the wall. You have to cross your fingers not to break on the sky high jumps

There's always a trade off. Excellent racing surface or stocked hobby shop. Not to mention parts are what a next day away seeing all of them are shipped from that neck of the woods, um yeah. And not to mention your going to the Mecca of Rc anyway so shut your mouth there mister frank root is awaiting my arrival lmao.
