Just got put onto this new track and I think it's freaking awesome. Has a drift corner to start and looks mostly homemade track.
This is very much our style with lots of chaos elements to it :)
I have got to get one of my rally builds on this AMAZING track!!!
Wow, that's a wild track. Gotta see about getting a car together for it. Looks like that last section would benefit well from some full suspension mods.
Based on having a couple fo cars with suspension at the canyon, I don't think they would actually do that well on the rest of the track. The issue is the body roll. They roll so much side to side that it could negate the drift, and would make som eof the other corners difficult, however over the last rough drop area it would be perfect.
That drift corner is pretty nifty. Wonder if it's a drift pad?
I think if they added a little more speed after the drift corner it would help their action a lot. That washboard is rough to watch but pretty neat. Nice model making for sure...one to keep an eye on and maybe bring into the fold here a bit.
Yeah, thanks CC.
Certainly a lot has gone into that build, and to get the run weighting right/tuned!!
Overall fantastic job!! (Only the area in front of the finish I wince about!)
Thanks, race on!
That is a great looing track build and some nice,well made race reports!!
Mark has been kind enough to recently upload a behind-the-scenes build video for this track!
Quite frankly, I am enjoying the hell out of this track. Building something like this is quite the challenge, and you had some mighty big shoes to fill by following in your dad's footsteps and creating a large yet believable race course. In model railroading, the devil is in the details, because just as much as the trains, the details tell a visual story. As a model railroader myself, I appreciate the little details that help bring the track to life, especially the fun little hidden ones that make everyone take a closer look at your creativity. (Just me, but I'd sneak a wrecked car down in that dry riverbed under the second bridge, maybe put a little hobo campfire down there or something, too.)
For what you have managed to do with what you had to begin with, you have done a beautiful job with this track and its landscaping. Much respect, amigo. (Now go put that outhouse behind the cafe! :p)
