That’s really impressive! I love seeing the progress you’ve made.August 28, 2018 at 12:39 PM #12962
It’s looking fantastic. Can’t wait to run there. I don’t know what its like to run in a conditioned space that has real lighting. Thanks for the posts. Its fun watching it come together.

OK, now I’m really excited!September 5, 2018 at 5:18 PM #12986September 6, 2018 at 9:37 AM #12987
Wow! That is looking great. I can’t wait to run there. I am looking forward to seeing the flat track, other than the long one with no turns.September 13, 2018 at 1:33 PM #13017
Tom – looks great! I am getting ready by refreshing the frame-solder on my funnycars and replacing the sponges on my flexis. BTW – what are you using for a ‘sand-trap’ on the strip, (some people use a bag or a net)?

Wow! Looks great Tom. Until ASCC formed, slot cars were a solo hobby for me. I had my own tracks in the Sixties–there were no commercial tracks around. I was not part of the wing car racing in the Seventies and Eighties, so I have not had the opportunity to race much on big tracks. Looking forward to it!December 21, 2018 at 7:45 AM #13449
So, what was the result of the trip to Capitol Slot Cars on Sat Dec 15?

Tom, looks Great! I am doing some fresh solder on my 1/24 drag cars to get ready, as well as a Flexi and Wingee (mass of a wing-car and thingee) for trying all the tracks out.
–Just curious, what will be your “sand-trap” for the drag strip? Some people use a nylon bag, others a net, other a foam trap.
–Are you using a single power-supply for all lanes, or splits (1 ps per two or three lanes?) For the strip are you using a battery system with 16volts or a single power supply?
–Are you thinking about leagues or ad-hoc races, or simply renting track time until interest grows?
