Question Highly realistic track...

Has anyone attempted a realistic track, with grandstands, trees, grass, pit, etc? I don't think it would be too difficult, being that you can by 1:24 model props, but has anyone tried?

Thanks

I plan to do that in my backyard whenever summer comes .... I will use real grass for the grassy areas and real asphalt to race on.... for the trees, I'll just use some small bushy flowers.... hehe.... then I will buy some props like signs and lights... etc.... it's pretty easy... i 've seen people try it on television so it seemed pretty easy...... well, i'm still a dreamer, but in the summer, i hope to have a track of my own.....

Step out of the car!!

A highly realistic track eh! SOunds cool.
Seriouslythough, how about stop lights with pedestrian crossing.
A custom mini-z caprice cop car chasing you around.. and what would be really cool in this realistic track would be one of those mini cameras you put on your mini-Z.

Just two pennies worth...

GeneralElectric, there are some pretty realistic tracks in HK and Japan; also search the forums for the Filipino outdoor track that's pretty realistic.

hi guys...

still haven't been to that outdoor track yet... most of the guys at the regular track that we go to are a bit hesitant of running their cars on that outdoor track... all it takes is just one traction roll and well the car's body is marred for life... we just feel that it'll be too much for the z... we do plan to see the place and probably try it out for a while though...

Perhaps just run F1s then, as they are a lot harder to roll?

Someone make Laguna Seca...

Someone make Laguna Seca(must have the corkscrew!)! Or a track with Hills and turns that go up/down hills. NOT JUST FLAT!!!

Want to run your car on asphalt but don't want to F up your body? Buy a Kyosho auto scale for a backup!

...Or wrap your whole car in bubble wrap! lol!

I've always wanted to make a realistic track but can't find a place to build one. It would be of Laguna Seca, Le Mans, Rolex, or Sebring. Of course they couldn't jus be flat.
