it is on....indoor rock crawler course.....need help

Post  drebies on Tue Aug 03, 2010 2:39 pm

i am in charge of the design,and fabrication of a competition level rock crawler couse....in a lhs.
i have decided to use the lumber , burlap sack,chicken wire,stucco method...with some real rocks and trees mixed in.
some of my rough ideas so far are a suspension bridge,waterfall hazard...there might even be a misty mountain top...haha what a dork,but this course will be awesome.
it will be mainly build to accommodate 2.2...or 1/10scale crawlers.
but will have sub sections for the 1/18 and micro scale crawlers as well....im trying to throw in a trail for scale stuff as well....but the main focus is 2.2
i am also trying to fabricate it so it can be moved around to change the layout...keep it interesting.

this will be a large course...i have no doubt in my mind i could make a decent course myself...but i need some help i want to make this course good for competing so anyone with experience please shoot me an email...after all this is not my track i want everyone to enjoy.

any ideas...donations(scrap wood,burlap,chicken wire...ect)please shoot me an email.
and i do need some help building this course..so i need one other person to help build...must have tools...must be into rock crawling....must be trust worthy.

i am so sick of whining and bitching about how much better a hobby shop can be...whine whine whine....but now i am taking initiative to make this hobby shop better for everyone....

i need input.

Dre count me in. I live in hudson falls so I am close by. I will swing by the shop soon and try to work out some ideas with you. This sounds like a great plan. I hope it is one of our "local" shops. send me a pm if you want to set some thing up. Brett

please anyone with any scrap wood or any elements you think will help the building of the track please bring donations to racing city hobbies(south glens falls,ny)...make sure to leave your name and email address so you can get recognition for helping.
were just gonna have to make racing city a fun place ourselves.
so this is a quick list of what we are looking for.
2x4 4x4 pieces of wood.....plywood....i guess just wood in general.
rocks..ofcourse....or please email me with a location so we can go pick em up ourselves.
burlap sacks....chicken wire....stucco,or bags of cement....sand)bring it in 5 gallon pails if need be.
nice pieces of trees or branches...add to the realism and for the construction of the rope bridge.
anything dropped off please make sure it is not infested with bugs or whatever,i understand that most of this stuff will be taken from outside please give it a once over.
the section for the course is absolutely huge...this will be a crazy big track.
and ken has been around for almost 20 years i have no problem helping him draw in some new people even if it is just to rip the course.
