Default Garage course

Welp my 10 year old girl told me its time to make a indoor course cause she is tired of the snow and rain. so we cleaned all of the stuff out of the corner of the garage and started doing some figuring and planing. here are some pictures of what we came up with. and yea my 4 year old girl had to help as well lol.

everything that was in the corner before the build went right back under the course so no big loss on space.

i bought a axial rtc. but changed the chassis over to the GC-2 chassis. trying to work the bugs out with the setup. my girl has the venom but her controller has craped out. so trying to round a cheap one up for her. and if your talking about the real one in the back ground its a 88.5 sammy on 38's

I COULD TOTALLY get away with building this in our garage as more "storage" just build some shelves into it and bam. check one off the honey do list and have a place to crawl.

maybe could find a cheap/free old dresser or bookshelf off craigslist and build on top.

keep the photos coming!
