Jeff,

They are the same size wheel as the standard H&R wheels. I'm not sure what that is. I could get the tire part number for you, but I have no idea what the wheel part number is.

That is looking like one big led sled. I'm thinking the body must be just setting on the track. If not that is one slammed low rider. Do you have a controller with the levers to work the hydraulics?

Hay, black track with yellow walls. What do you know, that does look pretty good. I think I have seen that look someplace before.

I forgot that I had not posted pictures of the walls on. They are not trimmed in the pictures, but they will be by this Saturday for the NASCAR Classic race and fun run. I will post more pictures from the fun run. The track is having a birthday on Friday. It was Good Friday when we routed the first pieces. :auto-driving:

Trimming. What a mess. The plastic shavings cling to every thing.

Done with all but one little stretch on the big turn. Time to start working on the bottom edge.

Had some folks that I meet at the Saint Louis slot car show come out for a relaxed afternoon of slot cars. One of them has a 8 lane hill climb for a home track. i can only dream.

I love having people come to play and bring stuff that I don't have and have never seen run on the track. As a part of the commercial track community and having one at home I assumed he might bring some stuff that was competitive on those tracks.

He's a driver and took to the track quickly. As he adapted to the track I tried to find cars that were anything like what he was running in an attempt to see if my stuff could keep up or not. Problem being that none of my stuff is much like the full fledged commercial cars of today. I have lots of old commercial cars and in some cases I have toned down the power in order to make them more manageable on my shorter tighter track.

We did run the Whisperjets that I had bought from him a few years ago and had a blast. Still amazing how much fun we have had with those old cars over the few years I have had them. If you own a track and ever get the chance to buy some of these old cars I would.

Thanks for coming out guys, hope you had as much as we did.
