Default Possible Track Design?

I'm sure the Lunsford Race layout has already been decided, but....just for kicks, I'll submit this design.

Any track around here gets jumps like that and I am selling all of my onroad stuff and going 1/8 scale. That is REDICULOUS. I want to do it.

58 second laps....holy cow! Well that sure would be the test for an 1/8th scale platform, if you can survive those landings for 30 or 45 minutes...that's impressive no matter how you look at it.

Pretty sure that is not going to happen at any track that I have a part of. We have all kinds of guys whining about our little wall ride. Imagine if we included something like that. We would probably have a mutiny on our hands.

Very cool large indoor track! ... I want to put the same type of free-span arena over our track at some point ... ching ching bling

I can see 50/50 love hate with the ski jump though because of car breakage.

My main concern would be having some poor corner shmuck getting beaned in the head and nocked out ... jumps that put the car 5' or better in the air do have this long shot risk and murphys law suggest there will be an incident eventualy.

I know a 5b would bust up on landing from the ski jump and god forbid someone gets nailed by one of those!

I like the wall 180 also ... a lot went into that track with cover.

Other than that ... cool track and vid ... wish it was longer.
