lol trust me there's plenty of time to get it dirty.
i'm running real gas with no ethanol so we'll see how the motor does after 4-5 tanks.
hopefully it will be good.
hopefully i can get a couple more through it today. it's boring as hell running slow around the yard but i want this thing to last.
after watching Ernie do his and how great his ran i'm hoping for the same.

1 tank done 3-4 more to go lol.





Looks good Mike. I had a hpi 5sc last year along with a km t-1000 and a rovan 26cc baja. The hpi ran great along with the other 2. Just be sure to have an extra set of tires handy for the sc. The stock rodeos don't last long. I put hostiles on mine.

or unbroken lol.
i broke a front lower a arm and bent the turnbuckle. also lost a screw for the front sway bar where it mounts to the arm.
i found the front shock caps were loose and leaked just a bit so that's fixed.
so far it runs great and the rodeo's hook up real good.

matt you need to stay off the tarmac for the tires to last LMAO

Lol. My track is real abrasive and has some rocks in the dirt so my tires here don't last as long. Plus I was bashing it good in the driveway spinning around a lot. I wore out a set in two weeks lol. Put a set of hostile mx's on it and they stayed like new until I sold it.

If any of you still run 1/8 buggy I just listed some more new glued up tires on AKA wheels for sale on rctech.

Scott don't worry about coming down because I got it done today. My track is about twice the size it was now.....


It's all been packed and I just came in from finishing it up. It took all day but I got it done. Putting the jumps in tomorrow and laying the pipe for the new bigger layout.

I don't know the dimensions I will have to measure it one day. All I know is the track is HUGE now......

I'm making it a nice track. I'm tired of it being half assed. So I box bladed the whole track again this morning and got it butter smooth now. I rolled it and added 5 new jumps including a big elevation change. All I can say is this is going to be a FUN track now!

Ya'll need to come down and run one time....

I still have to tamper the jumps smooth but this should give ya'll an idea. It's super smooth now that I box bladed the whole thing again. I've got the jumps laid out along with 5 new jumps including an elevation change.

It's raining so I couldn't go down there and take good ones. I'm probably going to put some woops somewhere too.

First vid is the first time I have ran on anything on here since redoing it all. The jumps are still rough because they aren't tampered. That's getting taken care of tomorrow.

Second vid is the rest of the battery pack from the first video. I started getting the hang of the track by the end of the pack. I think this is going to be a fun track when finished tomorrow!

Yup Randy was in some of the pics. Him and Paul helped me smooth and tamper the jumps. Paul had to leave at lunch time so he didn't get to run. But me and Randy ran until dark.....

The track is NICE. I am still amazed I did this good of a job considering I've never used a tractor or box blade or bucket before lolol. Paul and Randy LOVE it! You should get you a vehicle and come down and run. Once ya'll boys come down and run on it you will like it I am sure of it.

It's a great track and I wish I could find a way to get it more exposure because anyone into rc's would love to run on it. I'm also going to buy a new lap counting system as well later this year so I can hold races here. I have plenty of pit space, electricity, water, a nice driver's stand..etc...

Round up Scott and everyone and ya'll ride down and run one day. It's a fun track and I think all of you would like it. Just don't bring any 1/5th scales because they will tear the jumps and track up too badly.
