    I'm going to dig out an RC track.

    What should I put in it? Jumps obviously, but how big should it be? As an average.

    It'll be on hard packed dirt hopefully. I'll dig it and all that, than hose it and let it dry overnight and sit for a day or two. The loose dirt can be brushed off with a broom or something.

    How big should it be?

    Although for a different scale, I plan on attempting to build "sort of" a track this summer. My buddy has enough property to make a earthen track, but I think it will eventually get very boring to run the same track over and over... calling for the desire to change it up; which means a LOT of work (again). So, I am going to attempt a movable track.... something where the banks and jumps are collapsible and (somewhat) easily moved.

    Just something for you to think over...
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    One important key is where you are driving from, you must be able to see everything, even with racers beside you. The track my bud just came up with is in the shape of an L, with the drivers standing at the corner. We dont have a drivers stand, so being able to see from ground level is important and the technical and high speed section are directly in front of the drivers:

    I was planning on using all the dirt I built up on top of rocks and wood to build a stand.
