I am in the process of build some obstacles for my wraith in the backyard and have no clue whats the best way to set it up. Any advice or pics of what you have or what works well would be appreciated.

This is what I've got so far

Looks like a pretty good start to me. I've got no room in my backyard - so I sure cant help with design.

I'd say keep doin what you're doin.

I like that V-Notch. I have been trying to think of a way to make a large one going up the taller part of my retaining wall. Any suggestions?

For a guy who doesn't want to do much work to his crawler, you sure have a neat backyard setup!:eek2::mrgreen::thumbsup:

Took some pics of some other obstacles.
Gotta go up and turn around on top without toppling down. LCOG helps with this

Made it into this, but have not been able to crawl up it yet.

Cool!!

I'm going to look into making some foam sandstone. I hear it's not too hard to do, and is pretty cheap too, we'll see.


Oh Wraith's can't crawl up stuff like that, they bounce up them:thumbsup:

Guess I'll have to come hit up your course one evening, Josh. That is when I get my Wraith running again.

I think I'm going to get some lava rock at Home Depot and start a micro-sized course for my Trekker. I want to put the new motor to good use. About to order new wheels & tires for it, too, I think.
