So I have started on my sirt jumps and it is meh. I got crappy dirt that doesn't exactly pack well. Tips for making jumps? New to this.

Clay in the dirt helps. the other thing is a fuck ton of water. use enough of that shit and you can make a jump out of dust.

When you hit packed sand it doesn't stay packed. Plain sand alone is crumbly.

I'm assuming you have sandy dirt since you're in NV. Your best bet is to dig down a few feet and see if you start hitting clay. Your best bet is to do that and use the sandy dirt to build jumps and then cover the jumps in any good dirt you find. Pack your jump in, water the living hell out of it, pack again, repeat a few times until it's rock solid. I've been lucky and had red clay back in NY which was perfect, if you have any questions on dirt etc I'm always here!

Thanks man. We have a one acre rc track (not this crap hole stuff you see from 12 year olds, one acre of perfection with a 15 foot drivers stand ect.) There we found little clay. I'll dig deep and see what I get.

this. I live in New Mexico, and it isn't super sandy, but there isn't much clay. For the last trails we had, we just had to use a dickload of water, and maintain them once or twice every session. Sucks, but that's life in the dusty southwest.

Can't you use concrete to make the dirt stay packed?
