Going to get the landing ramp for the Fat Track section done first...I'll be permanently attaching the flimsy plastic ramp to the 1x8...stoked to be underway.

The loops will be secured to the track deck for racing and removed for storage.

  • This is going to be a cool Build!! — Rusty

Going to get a bigger piece of this packing foam...cut it to fit under the landing ramp...the 1x8 alone under the landing ramp would cause to much recoil...this should provide a softer landing and better success rate for the cars 

The scorpions are getting ready...

Ready to spectate.

Going to be a lot of fun!!!

Aw shoot, I completely forgot to mail my cars out! Oh well, will definitely be watching...

The Fat Track section aka the Wastelands will have a track channel.

Got the ramp base and padding cut 

Launch and Landing Ramps 

  • Where is the "Like" button? lol — TuxMcBea

Went with a textured sand stone paint for the Wastelands...it looks like sand...may not show up on video...but it's the look I was after and I doubled up the 3/8" square dowel on each side for the track channel...gives me the "ledge" look I wanted.

Man...what a challenge this build has been...I had to design a brace system for the loop section and redo the Drop from 4' @ 30"  to 6' @ 42". I'm  going to have a new loop system for the next race...see below...but we'll be racing this weekend and shout out to MDG Racing for letting me pick his brain on the redesign.
