Using the string in the slot method, I measured the assumed longest lane. It looks to be about 58 feet, although I'm not as concerned about lap length as I am lap times. Both are close, if any has an edge, it looks to be the one with the two tight turns and three big sweeping turns. That's also the lane that does not have the pit entrance so hopefully no racers will roost there waiting till they run low on fuel.

Now for a grainy video. I' hoping to use my wifes iphone 6+ soon so I can get some quality video and perhaps slo-mo. On a side note, any idea if I can edit my youtube account name? I don't mind y'all knowing as much as everyone with a web device.

Watch on youtube.com

Latest update, analog wiring! I used PVC pipe caps and recessed them into the framework. The power hookups are 8/32 screws. The Carrera CU is isolated from analog power with the use of a four way plug from trailer wiring.

I seem to be behind in posting updates here, I do have some in the club thread though. Some pictures should help. The car is 1/24 scale for reference. I decided on orange for the rumble strips to honor our late friend, "Da Vols" Orange and the UT Vols were a favorite of Bruce's.

I no longer have to look at the winter scape, I laid down some color to cover it up. The brown was from the Habitat For Humanity store, $3 and the green from the mismixed rack at Home Depot, $9. You don't have to pay high dollar for paint. I've got lots let too.

I have had the pleasure of driving on Buspor's track. It has a very, very nice flow and of course, being wood, it has that solid, smooth feel that tells you your car is really "connected" to the track. He is also participating in the Worldwide Digital Proxy - hosting the next round. Comparing the results on his wooden layout with the times from the other plastic tracks will be very interesting. I hope this track will give other wooden track fans some encouragement to give digital serious consideration. Anyway, this is a quality track that is very pleasant to drive.

Yes, I agree that is a very nice and a well done track. The combination of wood, with Carrera Digital, and analog option is a real fine Hybrid set up. Definitely something I would consider if I was going to build another layout.

Track is looking great. I hope the WDP (Digital Proxy) can race there.

ME too. I don't think we have had a race on a wood track yet. I am hoping my Heavy Porsche will prefer the wood.

This is the track I tried to run the WDP cars on first, but a bad data cable kept me from scoring. I plan on scheduling a race day in January.
