Default TH + DIY track = FUN!

Bought my TH about a week ago and so far it has been a really fun car. I raced a couple times this year with a durango dex210 and enjoyed it but didn't like packing up all my stuff for the track. I shopped for something fun for the back yard. I had a wraith and it was fun but cost too much to keep running. My scx10 is a great scaler but not much fun in the speed department.

Any how, bought the TH, built a track, went back to shop and bought more batteries!

Pics got re-sized via photobucket. They used to come out bigger but I guess they changed something?

Nice track! Just got a TH myself and I'm loving it. Ready to buy some goodies for it! It's a fun little car stock, but now I'm already looking to go brushless!

They've changed a bunch of stuff lately, but mine still show up full size...knock on wood.

I've ben using PB for years and yeah they def made a lot of changes and not all for the better. I down loaded your images to my PB account and resized them and they became pixilated so I assume that's why they were posted smaller to maintain quality.

Edit'd some of the pics. I guess you have to click the img link on photobucket now.

The track is nice, looks perfect for the 1/16 scale TRX Slash 4x4

FYI; All typos are the phones fault.

That track is great! Put some rock gardens in the mix and its a perfect ultra4 track.

I have a small bit on the side of my fence close to the gate. I'm not really into rock crawling much. I can appreciate it but I'd rather do trail running or race track type stuff.

I am thinking about picking up a wraith though and I think that would be more suited to the real "rock racer" style. With the low belly and small tires of the TH it's more of a racer too me. (to me remember)

Watch these two leaders fly threw the rock garden compared to the rest of the field. Notice the IFS and low slung stances. The TH is a rock racer, the wraith is a trail truck, that could be built to be a capable crawler. Again, cool track,

I may toss a rock section in there though. I'll have to get some new rocks though. Most of the lot I have came from a creek bedI take my 1:1 jeep through and they are really sharp, large rocks. I would love to have a hill climb of some sort but as you see, no hill in the yard.

I even thought about building a climb up the wall of the garage but not sure how I'd do it.
