Here are some updated photos of Snyderville Speedway,

This is a Carrera Digital 132/124 track. The dimensions of the table are 14'3" by 7", and the track is around 60 feet in total length. At this current time, I am just running it off the stock Carrera Digital 124 power supply and stock Carrera Digital wired and wireless controllers. The Woodruff, SC. These pictures were taken just a couple days ago after I finished painting the track. Here is what the track looked like before paiting and the minimal amount of scenery,

More original pictures can be found in my thread in the 'Club/Home Connection' section. Here is the link, viewtopic.php?f=29&t=16110

And here is the layout,

I think it looks much better now. I still plan on adding some more scenery. I plan on it staying pretty basic in terms of scenery, though, because I may want to change the layout in the future. So nothing I have done is permanent. It really is so cool to have a racetrack at my house! It makes me feel like a kid again... :D

Looks like one great slot car track to me. You have put a lot of work into this and the results are impressive.

Well done.

Great looking track! You guys with these awesome plastic tracks make me want to buy some and build a road course.

Every three years I get the itch to change Dundee Speedway, so I totally understand and endorse your thoughts of not nailing anything down.

I mount all my "track accessories" on foam core, and that makes those "track change itches" easier to scratch!!

Lots of room, and like the layout "for now" a lot!!

What did you have to do to make that double pit lane work? Does it require two sensors?

Yes, it requires two of the fuel sensors. If you look at the bottom picture of my opening post in this thread, you can actually see the two fuel sensor pieces before the track was painted. Now that I have painted the track, you can't see the fuel boxes. So I am going to paint a white line just in front of the two sensors to indicate where your car must be to fuel.

This pit stop and safety car stuff is not as simple as I had hoped

Unfortunately, I can't give much info on the safety car feature, as that is not something we use.

I bought a safety car then learned I need two pit stops. And you have just informed me that I need 3 total to get what I want. I hope they get cheaper.
Any idea if you can throw a lane change into you double pit lane to hold more cars?

Yeah, if you wanted to have a race with pit stops and use the safety car feature, the safety car would need its own dedicated pit lane.

Yes, you could add a lane change or a crossover track piece to simulate 'pit stalls'.
