    I love it, as the death toll around the world increases exponentially daily my boy Cleeter is about to get a burnout pad and fix his draining issues so he can smoke em up in a couple weeks 👍. Thank you !

  • MpTx

    I miss 7s and going fast. I don’t understand the dedication to burnouts. Always fun to blow some tires but dang where’s the drag strip and record chases.

    To anybody who doesn't know asphalt- that big white machine- 45-5500 a day to get onto a job- machine costs roughly 400,000...dumptrucks- minimum 700 a day... these guys deserve the most

    It's to bad Freedom is gone and will be from now on. Our owners will play this virus card bs till we die. Mark my words. Every 3 to 4 months a be case of Corona virus will pop up and they will lock us all down again. If anyone thinks things are ever going back to normal obviously you haven't been reading the scientific journals, newspapers, and bs coming out of your heros Bill Gates foundation. This isn't going away anytime soon... Not till people wake up and realize their freedoms have been stripped from them and they're happily ushering it in! Smdh!

    Va med å bygge denn om så du freser og leger samme asfalten ned i jenn 10 meterbak lage denn som en fresende asfalt stasjon med mulighet for påfylling av nu asfalt i fronten vist det forsvinner og for å få noe ny asfalt i den gamle kann man det?

    Will there be SCCA road course racing too? I know it's kinda small but you could totally race some MX-5s around there I'm sure.

    Things this place needs(unordered list): -Motocross track -1/5, 1/8, and 1/10 RC car tracks. -Race drone course/freestyle area+flying field for regular RC planes. -Paintball/airsoft field. -Road-course/drift track. -Small and big ovals (maybe combine this and the previous) -Dirt track for rallycross including a dirt oval. -LOTS of parking. -BATHROOMS. -Pit areas. -Changing rooms, I guess. -MAYBE some provisions for camping/RVing. -Shooting range (both regular target stuff, and a 3-gun type course. -Maybe a friggen water park area??? -Lil restaurant with homecooked southern and good ole' American food. Maybe Cajun stuff, too. Has to offer gator meat and all the regular BBQ/tailgating stuff. Dunno how much room you have, but yeah. Make this Freedom Factory GLORIOUS. Better than all the stuff available in central Florida, COMBINED.

    tip for moving metal tracked equipment over places you don't want damaged use plywood boards and drive over them as long as you don't go over really steep places it works awesome.

    It’s not asphalt millings it’s asphalt grindings. Asphalt grindings they recycle and make new asphalt with adding some new asphalt emulsion rock and gravel

    Asphalt when done correctly wouldn’t need patched constantly. Asphalt is more American and keeps more people employed than mob owned ready mix companies.

    As a dump truck driver, milling up a roadway is always fun.

    That looks like a fun job. I've done that work on roads with traffic. This is the kind of job where you can relax a little, and when it's all done you can look at it and appreciate the awesome work. Also yeah, good Dozer and Grader operators make tricky work look easy. Hoping to get into grader work in a few years myself.

    Yeah if you have the Machine and you have the condition that the surface is in, it's best to do it then.

  • lfilson

    What a cool shot of that grinder. And that gadget is like the world's most metal lawn mower.

  • PawPawBreaks

    You can use old tires to lay down for the dozer to ride over. We do it for road crossings in pipeline construction. No marks

  • nonfatkibbles

    Due to your new rule you should take everything that you get to drive and do 1 lap on the track with whatever it is and keep a record of your lap times of them all.

    Are "The HOONIGANS" helping with the planning/setup of the "Burnout Pad"? Reinforced Concrete, or Fiber-fill Concrete? This Track is going to be "EPIC" as far as I am conserned! Take care, 🤓 -Thomas Skagen Western Washington State
