    Well If the tyre idea gets the all go then the track can be marked out with them itl have to take a big hit to knock them far out of place

    I got a mate who owns a garage who I'm sure can donate some old tyres won't be a huge amount but anuth to make one or two walls :)

    Id use some rope between cones or something.

    Cheap, easy to store, fix and make.

    Means when it does go wrong (yes when lol), you don't write off several k's worth of car and several hundered £'s worth of parts and time someone has put in either.

    :)

    Theres more to it than that, but fair enough, someone else will pay for it, build it, store it, drag it out each dwyb, repair it, then put it away...

    2 cones and and some rope, once the rope has met your front wheels cause you went in a bit hot, you'll thank me :D

    I'm being realistic :p

    Fine, build your wall if you can get thru the red tape (how about red tape instead of rope? :wack: :D)

    My point is, learn with soft cheap stuff THEN impress other men with a real wall :smash:

    Personally I'm fine with it, Its my caring and thoughtfulness for others innit :euge:

    I get the feeling this will end in some kind of challange though :rolleyes: :euge: :smokin:

    learn in an enviroment that challenges you mentally and phsyically. a big open space with cones does niether imho.

    Well, its a difference of opinion as it's clearly done me no harm :D

    Thats what pod is, it may be its shortfall but also a huge strength, again Im not saying nothing needs doing, just it has more to offer as things have evolved, so far, than people seem to think :)

    Youre a few days late with that one mate, ply lining the tyre wall is exactly the idea.

    Rope between cones in gay George. Not because of any hero aspect issues, just purely because it'll end up wrapped round the car and you'll be dragging cones around.

    Last track scribble to show potential placings of the tyre wall/rubbing board.

    instead of rope why not use " FRAGILE " tape and then add bubble wrap to the cones BUT not the regular teeny tiney bubble wrap, the bubble wrap with the big fuckers on for extra hero spec protection

    why not drift with a jonnie on for that extra added bit of safety

    You learn 10x faster on a track WHY I HEAR YOU SAY because there is a clear line and things to AVOID and NOT HIT

    makin pod harder will only improve people skills in every aspect and any new obsticals are put in places easily avoidable

    the end

    Maybe the wall should be made out of soft cuddly toys so that if you do clip it you can then go back and hug the nice teddy weddy better.....



    Edit: The rope idea sucks ass, and will spend it's day wrapped around peoples prop/halfshafts
