Guy currently we dont have much track info for you we have a design for 2wd then a similar one for 4wd its no fun to show you drawings so we will keep you in suspense until friday night as for jumps and other features. Im pretty sure we wont have a wall of death sorry But hoping to have some good jumps dotted around the track. And as for size it is slightly bigger than kidderminster track.

I hope they are not just a few propped up boards scattered around the track.

it would be nice to see some features where it rewards the driver getting them right, such as landing on the downside.

don't place them too far away from the drivers stand, especially if its another trailer. if the track is Kiddy size viewing it from only 9 feet off the ground will make the far sections hard to see.

these are just my thoughts, not sure if anyone else thinks the same.

It's easy to say don't use it, but to replace it with something thats going to last will cost at least £500, Coventrys yellow piping that was used for the F3,4,5's which is the right size cost nearly £700.

Ben, have you ever priced up how much just one of your cars is worth? with all the leccy's. Your S4 must be worth a fair bit over that.

It costs about £300 just to compete at a national so £700 for something that wll last 10 years + isn`t to bad.
