Got the vinyl plotter going the other day and cut some vinyl for the Whisper Jets we use for IROC cars. Ok so I didn't finish the green car yet.

Also did some INSANE lane markers. I don't have them all on yet, but I have gotten them on in some of the key places. When I get to lean over again I plan on adding painted stripes too, but these will stay as well.

Then we have this from Razor Jon's visit. I have no idea what happened, but this is how it ended.

Plenty more vinyl projects to come. It's just slow going at the moment. I spent some more time playing with the Tire Razor today. It is just what I needed to get my TransAm car in the hunt. Cut the tires, set the tripod, remounted the body to get it lower. It is almost ready for racing action. Just need to tune the last few 100's out of it and then do some vinyl on it.

Anyone interested in running a H&R TransAm class with us? Simple stuff... H&R brass with a hard body that would of or could have run back in the day. Foam rubber tires and M/T5 motor. I like to run 10/26 gearing, but you can do whatever you want in that department.

I was even going to try to talk Harry into a oval race or 2 at the home of HRW to add some mix to it. We will have to wait to see what he says on that one.

I picked up some 1/32 scale cars on the forum the other day. That brings me from 3 to 10. I will admit to having fun running them, but I still think I'm more of a 1/24 scale guy. Who knows I could still be reformed, but I wouldn't put money on it.

I (Tom) wonder (Tom) who (Tom) is (Tom) responsible (Tom) for (Tom) all (Tom) this (Tom) madness (Tom) anyway (Harry). Now don't get me wrong, I would be the last guy to point fingers.

Friday and Saturday the weather looks favorable to work out side so I am going to try to work on the plastic for the walls. With any luck we (Tom) can get them all on. After all we have an event coming up soon. Sure would like to have them on before I have a bunch of people over seeing the track for the first time. Wish us luck.

Hey, at least you take responsibility for your actions :)

Guess I need a quick trip up with the Racer Sideways and Carrera DTM's to further pollute your mind.

Bring it on, but what ever you don't bring those silly vintage NASCAR things with you. They just aren't any fun at all.

Oh, I was pretty far gone when I ran into you 2. However then I was hooked on HO's and I never had the laughs with them that we have had with these. Thank god they have a shot for that and it all cleared up. Thanks for saving me.

Now pick a day and pack some cars. Lets get the show on the road.

I got some of the plastic walls on the track over the weekend. Only 4 more pieces to put on. Then it needs to trimmed top and bottom all the way around. With all the elevation changes in the track fitting the plastic has been a challenge. I had help from 4 people on Saturday and 3 on Sunday to get this far along. It's turned out to be a lot of work, but I think it is worth it. Once all the halls are on I will go back and trim the top and bottom edges of them to get the proper wall height for each section of the track. I'm going for 1" on the inside of turns and 2" on the outside of the turns with transitions in the straightaways. Stay tuned for the results.

While I like a gal that shows a little leg this is going to be a classy lady. A preview of her in her full length skirt.

Thanks. When I first came over to visit HRW and said I was going to build a track is this what you had in mind?

Well my mind is kind of odd, best never to be analyzed. But what you created works pretty great for the space you chose.

It's not what you CAN see here, it's the little things you cannot.
The time took on the track joints, routing, & assembly is clearly felt when racing. Very smooth, very clean.
