Show your track! - 2017

Postby HomeRacingWorld » Mon Dec 04, 2017 7:21 am

This time of year we see a lot of new faces as well as returning enthusiasts. Many are looking for ideas for their own new slot car empire.
So let us share a pic or two for those looking a quick "cruise" of what we have shall we?

Our routed oval - 5 x 16. "The Show-Me Speedway"

Image

Our 3 lane routed road course - 4 x16. "The Mid-Mo Speedway"

Image

Every few years we make a small plastic track and this year it is a Scalextric.
"The Skunkworks Test Facility" - 3 x 8

Image

Ok gang, show us what you have :)

Kleskun Hills hybrid track a mixture of Carrera GO! And 132 track. Wired for digital and analog. I run 143 and 132 on it. I use Carrera digital 132 decodes in all my cars, giving me the full meal deal even in 143.

Here's some!

First is my track, built by Larry, and modified by me.

Then, a very old track I tried to resurrect, but moisture had gotten to it and it fell apart.
Image

And last... THE TRACK OF ALL TRACKS, by the master, Larry himself.

Mine is routed copper tape 4 x 16, the table is on wheels so I can move it to the back of the garage and get my cars in.

I am an old man, and most people hate me. But I don't like them either so that makes it all even.

My little routed track with magna braid.
[url=http://s973.photobucket.com/user/ccobra1/media/Inspiresomeone%20Raceway/100_1424_zpsrkmyfjxq.jpg.html]Image
45 foot lap length on a 7 ft x 16 ft table with three 7 amp power units with separate voltage control for each lane (Varompha wears out to quick going around the track and placing the cars back on). Trackmate timing system using my old computer.

I have another on the south side for fans to watch the races. Seats came out of a friend's pickup so I put them to good use and they're pretty comfy also.
