How to Build my own RC Track (check out my sketch)


Hello everyone,

I am getting my first RC Car and it will be a Team Associated RC8.2e. I finished a sketch for the track I want to build. I wanna hear your opinions. One of my concerns is rain. In fact, I think it is my only concern. I know it is a lot of work to build it so let's just not talk about that. I just want to know if someone has good tips for drainage. The natural terrain is on a slope so I could manage to make the track with a little inclination. Will that help?

Hoping to hear a lot of tips most of all for drainage purposes

Great looking layout. Some incline will definitely help with drainage, but for the most part you will have to rely on the ability of the surface to either shed, or absorb moisture.

What is the soil like at your location? Is it sandy, or is it more clay?

Thanks for your answer.

Mostly clay. Terrain is in a mountain, but with a lake nearby. All kind of flora around so it is good quality dirt. That helps drainage, right?
