This track is a simple figure 8 design, the center pyramid offers a lot of different line choices, and gets you cornering both ways.

To build this track:
-Start with the center pyramid and work out from there. Make sure you have enough space for the plan above it requires an area of approximately 50' x 80' or 400sqf.
-The pyramid located in the center has a base of 12'x 12' and a top of 6'x6' it is 3' in height
-Ideal roller spacing for track shown is 10 feet (peak to peak) roller height 1.5'(peak to valley)
-Ideal berm radius for track shown is 12 feet (2' to 3' deep is best)

You can dig this track into the ground or get dirt dropped off for you, it's up to you and the resources available to you.
