I wish my track looked so clean! It would be great to be able to come home seeing the original colour of your body shell :clown:

Jokes aside, that track always freaks me out. That bridge would piss me off big time as it would break your concentration every time you car disappeared under it. How do you find the track Clive? It looks kinda tight and technical much like my one only you don’t have your track littered with rocks and creators that literally swallow up some of the 1/8 buggies

He drive like the buggy is on rails!
What is that annoying nitro sound.:clown:
Nice track - I agree it seems like it would be tough going under the bridge but it might be the video and easier in person?

i think the bridge part would be fine, just point and shoot!! lol

in some of the pics/vids ive seen, it looks like the track is astroturf and not real grass. i know my baja would be trenching if it were real dirt/grass. either that or that is SOME HEALTHY Grass. lol

yea i wouldnt know what to do comeing back with a clean RC. lol
not for offroad racing anyways. lol

Yep its astro turf all right. Speaking of trenching some of our clubs 1/8th guys have been complaining about the 5b's messin' up the track by digging little holes at end of each corner where the guys nail the throttle so I think the Baja 5b class will either be moved to the end of the day or outlawed altogether. What they don’t realise is those monster trucks also make one hell of a mess as well and the track always looks terrible by the end of a race meet.

Anyway my point is at least astro turf wouldn’t have any of those issues even if it is like driving on a bumpy on-road track :clown:

I heard that the dirt there is not the greatest for a track so they use the turf to create their race tracks. (Don't quote me on that just read it in another forum years ago.)
Instead of outlawing, the Baja group should get a donation together, get some large pieces of turf and put them in those areas to keep running there - Even though I would think track maintenance is part of having a track.

I have not raced or even been to the track in the videos - it is at least a 400 mile round trip for me!!

Most of the largescale tracks here in the UK have changed from grass/dirt to astro turf - the benefits being reduced maintenance and of course all year round racing. If the tracks being used in the winter race series here had been grass/dirt there would have been no racing recently....

I am in the process of arranging for high quality videos of the race meetings to be uploaded to one of the german largescale websites. I will post details in due course.
