micro track....near saratoga/gansevoort

Post  drebies on Tue Jul 06, 2010 12:12 am

this is the space im working with...i put my mini dt kinda in the middle to show how big the spot is..





so im not sre if you guys can tell by the pics how much space im working with...but its only for 1/18 scale or smaller...i kinda want to copy a well known track but just small...any help with ideas,would be greatly appreciated...and when im done i would love for some people with mini's or micros to come rip...
i want it to be wide enough to race...but am willing to sacrifice the width to have some good jumps....more turns..ect.

well today was the first day of work on the track...and i gotta say..DONT ATTEMPT A TRACK WITH ONLY A SHOVEL AND A HOE...and i dont mean my x-wife!
i was determined i got what i could done...but i need a tiller jeez even a garden weasel would have made my day easier.
so im thinking...trade tattoo work for labor...haha idk all i know is there are a ton of rocks...and roots...holy roots batman...you really gotta love this hobby to attempt by hand....
i must say i do feel good and tired after 3 hours of shoveling...im gonna sleep like a baby tonight.
im am a space case sometimes and forgot my camera...so next time i will take pics before i do anymore work so you guys can see my progress.
as it looks 2 1/16 scale at a time...or 3 1/18 scale...max
1/36 i could have at least five at a time...but this is my first track im glad i went small.
i have found a run down dirt bike track...and there is farm equipment on premises so a full size track is in the works...more later,heh after my friend talks to his wife about it.
