    New to this site, not to RC. I picked up my first hobby grade RC around 1992, a used RC10 with several race goodies on it. About the same time both my brothers picked up cars too and the back yard race was on. After a while the short run-time of the old (and mistreated) NiCd packs and the cars go shelved. I was out of RC until the mid-2000s when my Brother's wife bought him a 1/16 ERBE. I had one a short time later and the race was back on but without a track. After several bash sessions together and alone the novelty wore off and I started flying.

    Then, just after Thanksgiving a different brother got another 1/16 ERBE and a much longer track was born. In the past month, two Rustlers and a Chinese Slash 4x4 copy has been added and we race whenever the weather and our schedule allows.

    Our track is mostly flat with some incline changes and one little jump. The track was built with the 1/16s in mind that those are the most stable when it comes to landing jumps. This track is a little tight for the 1/10 scales that keep showing up but its still fun.

    The total RC count for this track and drivers:
    Operational:
    1/16 Revo BL x3
    Brushed Rustler x2
    Chinese Slash 4x4 copy
    Revo 3.3 (The track Bully, when its running)
    1/16 Slash - Brushed
    JJRC Highlander

    Not, or questionably operational:
    The original RC10 (made by combining the good parts of my original and my brother gold pan reissue)
    Losi XX
    RC10GT

    In pieces:
    Original Tamiya Blackfoot
    RC12 road car
