Default NEW BACK YARD TRACK!!!!!!.

Since I decided to keep my Losi 8ight T, I figured I should have a place to drive it. I am having some buddies over to race in the morning Ill try and get some video action. Its kinda small, but should be fun. Probably bug the crap out of the neighbors. Most people have dog poop and grass in thier back yards, but I wanted a track.

Thanks, It took me about 9 hours total. This morning I am very sore [sm=cry_smile.gif]. If I would have had a wheelbarrow it would have only taken 5 or 6 hours. I cant wait to race on it. I am going down to Home Depot to get some wood to make a starting rail before my buddies get here. I am also thinking of getting some 5" PVC to do the borders.

Home depot, Lowes most of the store's like that will have it....as per the price...we'll im not too sure.

weaping tile is the black stuff that we make the lanes and stuff out of at most Pro built tracks....it comes in other color's as well i should not say black is the only color...here's Yellow.



this was also a backyard track to a Kyosho sponsored driver...but since his wife and him split...everything's been sold and dis-mantled.....quite a shame i must say...as the layout was UBER fun to run...dispite needing a personal marshall during personal practice....Unless you Brian B.

Is this the same stuff?

Dude, love the track. Did you bring in a bunch of topsoil? That dirt looks clean, not much rocks. Just get ready for your wife to start *****ing when your buddies are over 24/7. Now just add some light so that you can keep driving after sunset. Looks really nice!

Huh, the link works on my computer. Its a link to a 4" flexable drainage pipe. $45.99 for a 100' roll.

There were a BUNCH of rocks, I raked them all out after forming all the jumps and before packing. I didnt bring in any soil, just moved the dirt in my yard around and dug it. My side yard looks like crap with a big pile of rocks and weeds. [8D]
The lights might be coming, Ill see how it goes. Lights would be nice for the summer time for sure!

This is hardcore. Really. You might want to spend some time with your neighbors before you start running on that thing.

Nice track. We just made our own track in a friends backyard. We can't get enough of driving, and you get some exercise too when you marshal your own car all day

Phildo, your track is very cool, but your neighborhood (track home) looks kind of like mine and my neighbors would not have it. Anyways good luck with it and hopefully you guys get some drive time without too much complaining

That's what I was saying. Here is an idea. That subdivision looks kind of tight and that would make the yards small. Tell them you'll cut their grass for free and you'll be off the track by 8pm. It might work but iff one of those families have a baby in the house you can forget about it.

worst case scenario you run EFRA 3XXX pipes....they are significantly less noisy then say a OFNA 086 but im still sure would break the barrier on noise pollution even in the middle of the day......run em till the cops come i say. [sm=lol.gif]

3 of the 5 houses that surround me are empty. Of the 2 that are occupied, one lady leaves her flippin dog outside yalping until midnight (payback [sm=punching.gif]) The other house is my neighbor to the left, and they are pretty cool. I am looking into a brushless conversion for my 8ight T. The exhaust from 3 cars running back there at the same time is overwhelming, the fence just traps it in.

Here is a short video, Not the best, but its my first video. Both the other guys trucks broke before we shot video. One broke his starter (Savage), and the other lost a bolt that holds the rear hub assembly on (old school kyosho).
