Default How To Build Indoor Off Road Track

Hi again :-)

Looking for info this time on building an indoor off road track for 1/16 scale slashes.

I am looking for info on type of earth to use how deep it should be and general maintainance of such a track if you can help.

Also was wondering if the dampness from the soil being indoors will cause any problems re dampness?

Have looked on Google but not to much info

Thanks for all the help so far

While there is a wealth of knowledge available from the members of RCU, not many actual track owners and such are present. Even guys who only race, such as myself, usually seem to have little knowledge on this subject aside from how to create sick layouts and labor a track into existence. I've personally run on everything from clay/"normal"dirt to carpet, and they all seem to have their ups and downs. I would suggest checking out www.hobbytalk.com, the forums there have a section dedicated to local tracks, and the owners host their own threads for their tracks, and TONS of info can be acquired from here. Best of luck!
