Scale signs really add to an ORV Park.

Here is one that I've been tweaking & working on for a while. The topo quad in the background is our local quad.

By the way, Did anyone see the article in October 2011, xtream RC on "Building your own scale trail"?

It had a few cool ideas, one "misting" black spray paint on rocks to simulate rubber & worn tire areas. I thought that was a pretty cool idea & would add some realistic effects.

Worth noting that a major RC magazine did an article on scale RC 4x4 terrain.

Hey DRW, that terrain in youre park was put there for scalers. Looks like a fun time for some trail rides. Feel free to send some of those rocks my way. Possibilities are endless with all that rock. Its lookin real sweet.

Hey, If anyone wants to make some scale signs for their trails, I posted a free PDF of some of my custom RC signs:

But we got a trail finder 2 forum for the lucky few that got early releases...
I guess that means they have no interest in a ORV forum. what a shame

Nice!

All you people from Virginia, we have a Scale course/park forum at VA-scaler. It's a state wide site dedicated to scale trucks & has really grown in the short time the site has been up.

Seriously already. What are you guys (moderators) waiting on. Start a course section already. Spring is right around corner. Great time to get one going.

I'm hopeful, Harley said he was working on it but he may already have his hands full with his exoterra.

I've just been surfin' around & have found some cool course builds, one is under "Tools"?? not sure why but it's a micro course & some others posted some cool indoor foam setups. theres a GTG course build under regional... General crawelrs, general scale, scale accessories... rig specific...

Seems like a potential market for vendors too. I've seen someone makeing scale banners for RC parks... lot of potential for more stuff. seems like a win win to me.
