Is it the double at the end of the straight you are taking out?

axeman
12-02-2012, 09:15 PM
yes mate going to put a small table top in similar to the one we just put in but with longer down ramp.

but we are open for suggestions. as the track is for the drivers and it's on the 1/10th section

Good job guys, at this rate it'll be open next weekend. Lol

Is "the hill" being decommissioned also? Evening racing makes that section a right pain with low level sun.

soon as the 1/10 track is open matt is taking his JCB to hill to somthing new...

I have no idea what hes going todo but I'm sure the hill wont be going.

Talywain trade mark is the hill. But I'm sure it's going to be bigger and better!

I would suggest just filling in what the double is in like now and make the down ramp have a lower angle by making it longer. Job done. Big jumps rule.:thumbsup:

I was going to say the same.

Maybe a big roller instead of a table top? That way you can either make a corner flow nicely over it or jump off it to the back section for the animals.... I mean nitros lol

how high is a piece of sting or long for that matter work that out and time's it by two :woot:

or u could go by the square root of somthing more than but not quite equel to half the size of the entire equation :bored:

hope that helps wee man:p

go big or go home thats me

I'm sure that's what we just said, but you can pretend it was your idea, I don't mind lol.

About the same height as it is now, maybe a tad longer.

I found it easier to jump my electric into the corner more than the 8th!!!
What about turning that whole section into a step up jump onto a tabletop with a step off ( lip on the top) to jump into the double..... Have a look at some supercross tracks for inspiration. You guys can do it! Before settling on a jump profile and laying astro. Test it with a few cars/drivers in dirt. Then you'll get the feeling if it's right or not ;-)

we tryed all that on the last big jumpes dident work.when tested they were great .gota race on the track to get the right speeds in the corners and on the face of the jumps so we will try try again but we could do with more help not this weekend but the weekend after if u fancy coming along i might even by every body a brekfast roll for input and help :thumbsup:

Works looking good dude...like the others have said about the doubles on the far side...fill in the gap, lengthen the up and down...like 2 or 3 times the length...make a long rolling tabletop thingy :thumbsup:

I can't wait for you to do the full season of nationals this year though...your gonna see some tracks, and track features...reckon Taly could might be quite different once you've seen the options! ;)

If I'm honest, I'm surprised to see you've built up the doubles in the middle, I thought you were getting rid of those obstacles...sorry, shapes of features ;), not building more!!!

I always like looking at the US tracks for ideas...some of their tracks have some great features! Long flat fast jumps...level changes...all stuff you can race over rather than crash well on!

Keep up the good work dudes, look forward to trying it this year :)

Hi..
I'm new to the site, hoping to be a spectator. I've enjoyed reading the threads and noticed camping issues cropping up occassionally.
I have property in Talywain and thought, if you'd prefer to book a couple of nights, I can accommodated up to 10 people in 2 of my houses. Let me know what you think.
Cheers!

Talywain is one of the few tracks in the UK that doesn't have any issues with camping. Long as you are racing you can camp.

That's Ok.. Just thought 50 a night for the house that sleeps 6 or 40 a night for the house that sleeps 4 (2 night minimum stay), someone might think "Why rough it". No worries.
Thanks for the response,:thumbsup:

Just been linked to this vid....check out the features on this track...would love some of those sorts of shapes going on...great looking racing features!!!

Long flowing jumps and shapes, not short sharp obstacles!!!

I would love a track like that!!!!

But up until last sunday It's been just Reg and myself...

But If I get a good club base this year there is nothing holding us back!!!
