Don't know, why don't you have a go at designing one and stick it on here? I'm always up for ideas when it comes to track building!

Table top was good last time James , maybe one a bit lower with no exit ramp so it has to be driven onto and then jumped off ?

Anyone else want to have a guess

I've been thinking we could make some curved jumps out of wood/mdf with a jigsaw cut smooth kickup. I guess storage is the issue?

Ok I asked for that..... I'm bringing my tape measure and cracking out my CAD skills for next time

I had same idea for jumps. Storage is the problem. I think if we made them from plastic though they could be stored out back maybe?

I can make some no probs , as long as I make them all narrower by the thickness of material they will fit inside each other Russian doll style , have a chat with others on Friday and see whats suggested

I just tried to bend 12" of 8th ply into a kicker shape jump and its not playing
You could get a full sheet and lean it up against a wall so it bent under its own weight into desired shape.........

Where/What sort of plastic could we get hold of for free of course

I know what you mean with the ply , it would have to be far eastern 6mm which is not cheap , about £20 for a sheet , to bend it I would just cut slots 3mm deep in the back of it , plastic is a good idea though but where from ? I don't have a clue

This is great stuff guys. I'm really pleased to see people taking such an interest in the track... Obviously space is the problem at Cullingworth. There was talk of being able to use the shed outside for some storage. I'm not sure if that offer is still open? Nori would need to ask the village hall guys. I quite like those little ramps we tend to put around the corners, Mark Dyson made those ages ago. I'd like to see more of those so we could have a proper bumpy corner!

Another thing I think would be helpful are some small sand bags or weights to hold the tyres in place. We are doing a pretty good job at the moment of taping all the track into place so it dosent catch on the cars and get moved about. But the tyres do still move about a bit.

How about trying to get hold of some small plastic domes too? we could make a cool bumpy section with those, I've seen them used as corner markers for touring cars, Not sure what they are called though?

Default ramps

Maybe work out cheaper/better to buy something like these?

Theres loads on the bay. Ranging from a tenner upto some mega money.

What you reckon?

Some of them can stack inside each other for storage and also side by side to double the width.
