LARGEST TRACK 523 ft long

WE THINK WE PUT UP THE LARGEST RCP TRACK.
523 FT. LONG. 3 WIDE IN SOME AREA 45'S
AND NASCAR OVAL. WE USE A LARGE
JR. HIGH GYM TO PUT UP THE TRACK.
TRACK TIME FOR US NOVICE WAS 55 SECONDS.
THE TRACK TOOK UP OVER HALF THE GYM.
IT TOOK US ABOUT 1HR 45 MIN. TO PUT THE
TRACK UP. IT WAS A LOT OF FUN RACING
NOT PUTTING UP THE TRACK.
THE MANY FACES OF RACING

Very nice layout Davey, sorry I missed it. Hopefully it won't be too long before that enormous track makes a revisit?

As soon as I have my 2.4GHz car, I'll come check out the Fountain club track for sure. By the way, are the KT-18 transmitters in stock down at RC Hobbies yet?

That's amazing. Must be a blast seeing cars go through those slalom-like S turns.

Did you guys use binoculars??

If I'm not a racer/driver I'd go WOW! but I am... that's gonna suck trying to find the best line for the best lap... It'll probably take a good driver 2 mos. to figure out the best line and be fast on this track.

I don't mind running there though for fun Good track to have an enduro!

No we dd't blow up any motors. We stood up
on top othe bleachers we could see the whole track
from thier. Binoculars would have been great, racig
on a track that big the car look pretty small.

I sit down sometimes while racing or going around the track... the action feels better when you're closer but then everything seems to be faster especially without my eye glasses on .

I can attest to Davey's commitment for the hobby. He gets there on Saturdays at like 7 to unload everything. We start racing at 10 and leave around 3. I stay and help and let me tell you, pulling and storing RCP is no fun, lol. But I help cause of Davey and his letting us race there.
