    Concord NC, if anyone is ever in the area hit me up on here and come play I need some competition!

    I have honestly thought of building a track about twice the size and having a couple of small local races. But I think it will be more trouble then it is worth! I raced motocross for long time when I was younger so I love thinking up new track designs. I change mine avery couple of months!

    I think that track is plenty big enough for slash's. Kinda wish you lived a little closer LOL im in Nashville TN area. Nice setup though. I have been thinking about doing something like that, Figured it would cost hella though. Plus i figured rain would wash all my hard work away. Do u have those problems?

    The rain really isn't a problem with this type of dirt. I built the jumps out of red clay so I wouldn't have that problem! My biggest issue is the grass as you can see. You would be surprised how much grass killer I spray and it just keeps coming up! It would be pretty expensive to do this without the help of my Dad's business (Grading/Excavating Company) which I work for! For me hauling in the dirt and equipment to move it is not a problem, luckily!

    I race 1/8 scale buggies as well that is why I made the jumps into tripples and what not becuase my RC8 handles that with ease. If I get a good enough run out of the turn before the middle rythm section I can take out the entire section in one jump, gotta love brushless power!

    That made me wish there were a track around here to run at. Nearest one for me is like 100 miles away.

    Looks amazingly fun man, biggest thing is just having someone to run with. I don't even have that.
