    Tom,

    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.

    Love the carpet maybe my car won’t get so beat up when I go flying off the track.

    The more they hit the floor, the more parts they buy:)

    The left half of the room holds the kingelman and a small oval the right half will hold a future flat track.

    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.

    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!
