    I drove the MERV on same track and even said on URC that the MERV was way easier to clean. In fact I said the BEST reason to get a MERV was the fact that dirt doesn't get in. Of course, neither does air, so everything heats up and you have to wait between packs.

    Don't get me wrong, I like SC trucks and I even own one (1:24 which never gets dirty, lol). Yours at least looks like it's been used. And that is where it's about

    Didn't think it was hating post I get your view point. Cleaning is a pain.

    Two points. Those pics are after three lipos, and I may not have mentioned it here... But I drove the track 5 minutes after wetting it. Didn't wait for the water to settle

    I see why SC races are so boring now. Wet track improves grip ( not initially but later) I do not like that, it is like watching buggys on a track, completely unrealistic. Buggies are to sand like SC trucks are to loose dirt. Since the scale is reduced you have to do hard pack with sand on top to make it legitimate. Basically drifting around turns to keep speed. Wait till I get my videos up. They are totally terrible, what NOT to do. But I tried

    First video is up.

    It is dusty though. Wet track should be up tomorrow. Going to be my last video with music I think. (Decided on Another one bites the Dust for this one and Slip Sliding Away for the wet track...) Sick of the youtube notices.

    Finally got the Wet track up.

    Scuse the poor narration. First time doing it, with a webcam mic, and no script. I am not Anti-racing, just against calling a brown shoe a black shoe. IE calling 4WD buggy racing SC trucks. From a viewer's POV.

    The main point is, The MSV is a ton of fun when you have proper terrain.

    Careful spray with the garden hose, turn upside and shake it out and then hit any areas that might be hold some water in and all metal parts with WD40. I wipe off excess WD40 with a paper towel and it looks good

    Oh that reminds me. Added a ramp to teh track. First attempt was just a small dirt pile not long enough to support a good transition.

    New one has a wood ramp in ot then I covered it with dirt.

    Packed, wet down, packed again wet down again, groomed and packed one more time. Leaving it till tomorrow to dry up.

    I DOUBT it will last long maybe a few sessions, but it is my first real attempt, and this dirt does turn into concrete when it gets wet

    Hope it works after all the effort. And wood, yeah good idea, that holds up a whole lot better than dirt, at least, compared to most dirt.
