Thats pretty awesome! What is the surface like and how wide are the lanes? Do you really think you could run 1/10 touring car on it? it seems like it would be a little tight.

1/18 scale would be sick on that layout. X-Ray, 18R, Duratrax TC, Rally, Scalpel, BRP and lets not forget

That track screams three things to me:

1. Foam tires
2. Mod motor
3. Open Pan Class.

Nice job Grant, you wanna take me over to your place sometime so we can race on this new track? :)

Good luck and congrats!

This is something to look into also, even though your already finished, if that surface does not work out. 62 cents a sq.ft. The 6511 is all black and made from recycled tires.

Enjoy.

I am building a replica of the track in the first video in my garage without a elevation change, just flat :D

So what are you guys going to be running? It seemed like you had a pretty good Mini-z following? Well hopefully you can get some cross over like you say. Well if you guys are going to be in SC I will see you soon!

Take care

Those are the 1/10 scale mini that will be run at yasuji's? man those are nice, very adjustable and looks like it has a graphite chassis. They say 95% RTR what 5% is missing? and the bodies come pre-painted like displayed?

^ Those cars are not true 1/10 scale. Just a little bigger than 1/18. I love the 510 and the Austin Truck.

Hi Grant, what's new?

Sorry to see the Z scene faltering. Great looking track. I hope all goes well for you. I like your angle of get 'em in the door and let 'em see a Mini Z run. If you can drive a small - scale car, you can drive any thing! They are hard to master, larger scales are much more forgiving!
