We raked a ton of little rocks out of that track when we made the track change, but there will always be SOME in there. My suggestion would be to walk the track between rounds if you're concerned about it and try to weed out what you can.

That's Fairly Funny. WE all know if anything most of the Rocks that are (or) were even onthe track, They are off to the side. So Good call one What the Smokeshow Said, By Picking up a few if you can. We all appreciate it :wub:..

Also there are People Running More than 500 laps + on the track the night before, So as for a Shock, Even a Shock (CAP) getting broke it would have to take a Big Bulder to do that. If any thing lay off the throttle on the Bigger Jumps Drive a Line then maybe your R/C Experience will be a litlle bit more Plesant for you..

I want to bitch about the Dust on the Carpet track!  I mean really, it makes it very hard to find traction.  So if you dirt drivers could keep the dust down that would be great.  Sooooo, I will thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.

Now for the rocks on the dirt track thing.  I would suggest putting a few 5 gallon pails out there and when your turn marshaling if you should happen to see a rock pick it up and throw it in the nearest pail eventually all the rocks will be gone.  Problem solved!  Your welcome.

The more you pick rocks the more will  come to the surface. I do not think there is any rocks big enough to cause any problems like someone mention before it is a Off road track

You'd be surprised, a little rock, about 3/4" will cause a 2wd to completely flip over.

Less rocks LOL that's why it's off road if you don't want rocks run carpet . I doubt very much if you could find a track in New England as smooth or with as little rocks as RCE .

I 2nd That thought justin.

RCE is as good, no "great" a facility as you will find nation wide.

Find me another indoor track as big as RCE's, can't be more than a hand full nation wide.

Todd & all the RCE Crew rock!!

I say one thing  the material use for the inside off road track packs down like concrete and holds up very well  it does not rut up and break up to much, but with that mixture and type of material do not let to much water touch it or its done.

Every time we redo the indoor off-road track we lookout for more rocks.  They seem to grow every time we are due for a rebuild.  If you are upset about having some rocks in the dirt come on down and help when we rebuild I'll give you the bucket and let you walk around and just pickup rocks
To those about to loose it. Go for it. You can't take it with you.
