I have been kicking this around for quite a while, and finally decided to do something about it. Since the old Oval has been coming down, and the Hillclimb has been taken apart, It was time to make a move!
The materials have been acquired, and plans drawn up for an 1/8th mile, 1/24 scale Drag strip.
I am looking at the trackmate timing system, as it is really the only way to go in my opinion, having used that system on both my oval and road course. My plan is to run races once a month, and hold proxy Drags for anyone interested here on the board. It should also help take the load off the other tracks currently hosting drag races.
So, I will be taking construction photos, and posting updates as we get going on this.
So look for some heavy noise coming out of the South in the next few weeks! My emphasis will be mostly on Nostalgia type drag racing, Rails, Gassers, AFX cars, Fuel altered's, and early funny cars. I have a high amp power supply already, and will be getting some controllers set up for this. This will be a no glue track, and classes will be based on Available motors in the 40,000 or less RPM range. The main staging area will be detailed heavily for some good photo shoots, the rest of the track surface will be strictly business. Hope this idea appeals to some of you closet drag racers out there!
And will bring on some new builds to share with everyone.
