Indoor rock crawling course?? - 07.27.2008, 06:24 PM

Anyone on here ave any experience building an indoor crawling course? I don't mean dragging some stones inside; more like the pics from RCX in the magazines. I think I have the basic idea; I'm just looking for some tips. This is going to be geared towards the new Losi 1/18th crawler and 2.2's. I'm thinking the thing to use is the expanding foam stuff over chicken wire, then shaped and sprayed with truck bed liner to give it some grit. Is this the way to go about it? If any of you have some pics or links to sites featuring this, that would be great!

My local hobby (Crossroads Hobby in Salem VA) shop has been building an indoor course, they have been using a mix of materials natural and artificial. Here is a link (not mine) discussing it at rccrawler.com

Good luck, keep us posted on how it comes out.

That's a nice looking course! Has your shop noticed an increase in business since you put the crawler sections in? I'm gonna have to go with an all artificial set-up, however.....

I will have to ask, I know the rock crawlers have been a good thing. Ronnie, the guy who owns the hobby shop is just a really nice guy and has a big area in the back that he lets people use with no expectation of return. I will let you know what I find out.
