we race as a very informal group , 2- 4 of us , also on Tuesday nights. We race just about everything, Slot its, Fly, scaley ..lately we have been running the old Vanquish models a lot. I recently trashed my 3 lane analog track , and am making a routed digital track. I /we never thought we would get into digital just because of the cost of chipping our fleet of cars. But after buying a Carrera digital set and trying that......OMG! what a freaking blast it is!!!...
I would not doubt that we have crossed paths at Niagara. It was a shame to see that place close . But I took advantage of the final day sale to get started in digital. Perhaps in the future we can check out each others track.... stay warm


Good plan !
Have any pics of your layout ?

I don't know how you guys handle it. -15C is the coldest I've ever felt and that was while living in Central Otago quite a few years ago.

You guys make sure ya stay safe and warm.

Tonight we have the season opener at my place and expecting another day of 102 degrees.

Once the sun drops down behind the Brindabella Ranges I can open the garage roller doors and get a breeze through, one of the good things about living in Canberra is its extremely rare to get a hot night after hot day. Totally different story in winter though.
