Build your track as original as possible.
Test run your RC and tweak the track to get nice smooth runs.

1: Good straight away for opening the RC up is important.
2: Some curvey technical driving areas are all so important.
3: If it's a dirt coarse, Jumps and Tabletops are always welcome.

I belive ROAR requires 10 foot width, Don't know how well that would work
with the Baja's size.

Walk around your proposed track location and determine the best place
for your drivers stand, then go from there.

A tracktor would be ideal for moving the dirt quick, But, I've heard of
guys doing a whole track with just a Rototiller and shovels.

Also consider track drainage and maybe a sprinkler system.

Happy Track Building, I'm soooooo jelouse. Buzz

Here's a design you could try.

That is Malibu Grand Prix in Tigard Oregon. They race mini Formula One's.. upscale from carts. It's a 60-second track. I'm thinking about talking to them about letting us run on a quiet day. Never know... could be a whole new venture for them.

Hey Rev294, that dozer has what an 8or9 foot blade right? Nice track width
for 1/10 scale, If you keep the track design tight together it should fit
nicely in that amount of space. Unfortunantly, I think you an your Baja are
going to want alot more running room.

Hey Tom, I'd love to see a vid of the 5B&T's running on that course !
